We have worked for many years at Zhuravichi Boarding Home, which is situated deep in the countryside in the north of Gomel Region.
It used to be a home for children with disabilities, but now all its residents are young adults.
In the summer we usually fund as many young people as we can to go on holiday, and we send out volunteers both to the Holiday Camp and to the institution itself. But it seems very unlikely that this could happen this year.
To improve the day to day lives of some of the young people we fund a teacher (Luda) and a carer (Inna) to work for extra hours, making sure that Petya and others like him are able to take part in activities and receive a better level of care.
And from time to time we buy craft materials and other supplies the home is short of.
Could you sponsor Luda’s salary for a month? £50
or Inna’s salary? £100
or make a donation towards the purchase of craft materials?
We very much hope that next year we will be seeking funding for holidays again as these mean so much to the young people.
