According to the data provided by Lea Mothers' Home around 14,000 women become mothers per year, between the age of 16 and 24 years-old in Hungary, and a large number of these young mothers live in cumulatively underprivileged circumstances.

 

Lea Mothers' Home assists many of these young women who are under crisis while becoming mothers, and supports them to get ready to live the life of a normal family. One of the main tasks of the home is to grant babies a peaceful and suitable place to come into the world in decent circumstances. It also helps babies and young mothers to stay together after the successful delivery despite of their disadvantageous backgrounds.
