Avatud Lootuse Fond

The door to a hopeful future!

About The Foundation

The Public Foundation of Hope was founded on 19 March 2018 by brothers Oleg and Andres Sõnajalg.

The objective of the foundation is to increase the quality of life of Estonian people and to promote family and other values, including Christian tenets. The foundation started out as a Christian rehabilitation centre. Many people around us are battling addiction, and we wish to help them. Therefore we have directed our energy towards providing a variety of support services.

In the future we hope to expand and empower people who are going through different struggles all over Estonia.

The foundation’s development strategies are decided by its Supervisory Board, comprising Oleg Sõnajalg, Andres Sõnajalg and Mare Kallaste-Karjus.

The day-to-day operations of the foundation are overseen by Management Board members Viljam Borissenko and Liis Borissenko.

Rehabilitation

One of the main objectives of the Public Foundation of Hope is to develop and improve rehabilitation programmes for alcohol, narcotics and pill addicts. Approximately 10,000 women and 50,000 men in Estonia suffer from excessive alcohol consumption (information: TAI). Nearly all of us know someone who is battling this problem. Be it a father, mother, brother, uncle, neighbour, the boy next door… We see these people’s problems but cannot help them.The number of injecting drug users in Estonia also exceeds the European average.

No one is born an addict, and addicts and their loved ones do not have to face this problem alone: there is always a way out.We are surrounded by people who have received help and are living fulfilling lives once again.

20 non-governmental Christian rehabilitation centres are operating in Estonia. Altogether they offer over 300 beds across the country, available to both Estonian- and Russian-speaking men and women. At these centres the employees hold the addict’s hand and walk them along the difficult path together. They help adult men and women readjust and live without chemical substances. Through these organisations more than 700 people who were previously held hostage by alcohol and drugs have been re-socialized. There are other ways of getting help besides the aforementioned centres.

Freedom from addiction!
