The spring campaign is going on

Many families still need help

As many as 112 people have already been able to buy seeds and poultry, but there are still many who need pigs and plants. We find this the best way to help: the families can grow their food by themselves. Kitchen gardens, chickens, pigs and sometimes a cow are the main source of sustenance in the villages. Your help is much appreciated.

Thank you for helping with the spring work!

When we gathered the crops last year, our family always remembered you. The seeds and plants yielded plenty, and our big family had vegetables all through the winter. We are now working for the new crops.
/ Oksana

Thank you for helping families. Buying seeds and plants is a great joy for them.

This is what one of the mothers said:
– I’m so happy! We worried about the seeds and plants, as we had no money for them and our family is big. I wish to thank you from my heart and soul.
/ Inna

Thank you so much!

Work in summer gives food for winter. This is how we think in the countryside. The villages have very few jobs; to earn money, one would have to go to a city.
The families are very grateful for your help with the seeds and plants. Your gift yields hundred-fold: the vegetables from the garden feed families all through the winter.
Many thanks for helping us!

You still have the opportunity …

if you just wish

Our current  campaing untill 7th of January.

Share Your Joy!

Children are waiting for the New year celebration.  Father  Frost is coming with the gifts, and festive food is served.

Mirjam listened to what the kids wish for the season. Their list includes salad “Olivie”, roasted chicken, potatoes, buns with raisins, candies, mandarines – and staying up all night. We can’t guarantee their last wish, but we calculated that a small Christmas food package costs 10 Euro, a larger one 20 Euro per person. The refugees and those living in Kiev have no garden products of their own, so they need a 30 Euro package. Would you also want to give a present to a child – choose a sum suitable for you and please let us know.

Thank you for the joy!

Julia and a group of kids went shopping last weekend. These kids were refugees displaced from their homes in eastern Ukraine and now living in our municipality. The children and youngsters received warm clothes and shoes that they liked and that were exactly their size. This would not have been possible without your help. Once more, our heartfelt thanks to all of you who donated to our campaign “Warm Winter”. We wish you had seen the joy of shopping!

Tack för en underbart varm jacka. Jag har bara drömt om att få en sådan. Men tack vare din hjälp är den nu min. När den blir för liten för mig, så får mamma ha den. Hon får alla mina kläder som jag vuxit ur .
/ Dasja 12år

Du är den bästa!


Jag hade frågat mamma att få pengar till vinterskor. Men hon hade inga pengar. I dag, tack vare dig har jag nya vinterskor. De var just sådana som jag önskade mig. Ni kan inte ana hur tacksam jag är.
/ Sasja 16 år.

 

 

 

Make the cold winter warmer for a child

Fundraising for ”Warm Winter” November 1st-24th Make the cold winter warmer for a child.

In the city the children are cold even inside the apartments

Outside it’s cold and in the night time it’s already below 0°C. The heating of the apartments was finally turned on the last week of October, but with that comes also the bills for the heating cost. The fees for electricity, gas, water and the fee to the city for providing these services are very high. For a single mum with two kids, who lives on the minimum wage, 80% of her income is needed to cover these costs. When the bills are paid there is barely any money left for food, and the money do not suffice for buying warm winter clothes and footwear. Your help is valuable! Right now your help is needed – winter is coming.

In the countryside, the needs are even bigger

Money is needed for fire wood, gas and of course warm clothes and footwear for the children. Just try to imagine life with small kids in the cold. The prices for fire wood and gas have rose tremendously. A loading of fire wood costs 5000 Hryvnia, which equals to 160 Euro. To sustain a winter, 2-3 such loads are needed. In the countryside, many people are dependent on temporary, short time employments since no permanent positions are available. The main part of the food is produced on their own farmland. A lot of schools cannot afford heating, so the students goes through the school day with their outerwear on, and when they’re coming home, it’s not warm there either. Many families are asking us for help. Some need fire wood, other money for gas. Many are lacking warm clothes and footwear for their children.

Hope of a warm winter for the refugees

Thank you for not forgetting the refugees from the war zone in Eastern Ukraine. About two million Ukrainians have had to leave their homes due to the war. We help the ones that have come to our town, that have the highest needs. During a period of four years the refugees have been through daily struggles. On top of that many of them are still in debt for their properties, that are now destroyed due to the war. Some of the refugees have found work and an apartment or a house. Some of them still stay in the towns old student housing – where the winter gets very cold since the town won’t pay for the heating. In the former student housing, there are single mums with their kids, grandparents with their grandkids, people with disabilities and elderly people. Their situation seems hopeless.

“No one cares about us, we are forgotten.”

For us, at Children’s Embassy, children are the main priority but we make exceptions. Since the start of the war we have helped the refugees that have come to our town, both children and grownups. Together we can give them hope of a warmer winter.

What can you do? How can you help?

You can buy warm clothes and footwear for the kids. You can buy firewood or supply money for gas for a family. Your help is highly valued, and much needed!
