The money raised goes towards the soup kitchen in our after school programmes. In partnership with the local church our staff and volunteers provide for children five days a week so they don't have to go home to an empty house and are supported through their studies. Our After School Programme is tailored to the area we work in and it's need. It usually includes a hot, nutritious meal, tutoring, life skills, fun, bible lessons and the love and care of our volunteers and staff.
COVID-19 Update: Our After School programmes have temporarily closed due to local governmet restrictions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, our teams are still allowed to deliver warm meals or food parcels to the children who attended. Our work continues, and your fundraising will ensure we can still provide nutritious meals to poor and marginalised children in Eastern Europe.
“When they first arrive, children are either too silent, closed off, or on the contrary, aggressive and rude. Along the way, their behaviour visibly changes. It is beautiful what love, care and a good meal can do.” - Mihaela, after school programme volunteer
