Every now and again, we have a need which becomes our top priority in order that we can carry on our work, or to support emergency needs in our projects. Every single penny donated is used for this purpose which enables us to achieve the outcomes in a quick and timely manner.
Ongoing support to enable a New Home for abandoned children to run at full capacity in Romania
Purpose: The home will provide an environment for 12-14 children who have been chosen by the project leader and social services in Reghin. These children eke out an existence and have no-where to live. Almost ferril-like the home will provide stability in their lives where they will learn basic home-life with “live in parents”, receive help with further education, meet with social workers and counsellors on a regular weekly basis.
Outcome: The home will begin during 2020 and we need to raise £1600 per month to help fund the running of the project. This will include all the above needs including food and all basic essentials.
Cost: We are looking for 100 people to donate £16.00 each per month and this will cover the basic running of the home. Any further donations raised we will contribute to the new home enabling it to plan for its future.
Land purchase to build up a small community
Purpose: Over the last 2 years, we have began a small programme which enables up to 40 children attend for after school activities and a hot meal. This is ever increasing and therefore the infrastructure has outgrown the need. A piece of land has become available and once this is purchased we will begin to work towards a strategy for it to become self sustaining. The first installation would be a poly tunnel which would enable the project leaders to grow their own vegetables. Once this has established and running well we will begin with a playground for the children whose lives are very remote in the countryside with no access to anything like this. A main building will then be the focus with a kitchen to enable the project leaders to move the main activities into its own location.
Outcome: We have already achieved a micro farm within 5 years and so expect to be able to grow this area with the support and needs met. It would be expected to become self sustaining within the 5 years.
Cost: We are currently costing the land price, aproximately £3,000
