The "A YURT FOR ALL" project is coordinated by David Bellatalla and the Mongolia Red Cross, and is aimed at single mothers with disabled children living in the Chingeltei district of the city of Ulan Bator (Mongolia).

The goal is to guarantee the children a home, security and medical assistance, and to support their mothers through their insertion in the world of employment, with a view to building self-reliance and self-sufficiency for the families.
Anthropologist David Bellatalla has undertaken several research projects in Centre and South America, Asia and Australia, and published numerous books, scientific articles and documentaries. After a period of teaching at UWA University in Perth (Western Australia), he moved to Mongolia to teach Cultural and Audio-visual Anthropology at the Mongolian National University in Ulan Bator. In 2013 he was awarded a Gold Medal by the Mongolian government and the Red Cross for his humanitarian activities and his work over more than 15 years to help the capital’s orphaned and abandoned children.
