Supporting war victims & easing children's anxiety

Moving disabled children/families to safer place
Moving disabled children/families to safer place

Dear Supporter, 

Through our partners, we are working hard to support refugees and people remaining in Ukraine. 

Moldova 

Moldova is one of the first countries in the refugee pathway with thousands of children and women, elderly people with poor health seeking shelter and accommodation, care and food.  

In Moldova, we have been providing mothers with their children with essential items such as nappies, slippers, warm clothing, clean underwear, personal hygiene, and hygiene products. They also guide mums who need paediatricians for their children, providing information and helping them with appointments. 

Our partner Ora temporarily suspended their work at the Children's Day Centre's to provide accommodation and support to the refugees arriving in the country. Whilst Esther House is back operating, Ora, Moldova is still providing accommodation and food, hygiene products, medical and psychological help, books, school supplies and toys for the children. They will also provide transportation for the refugees and work with Elderly Houses to support elderly refugees. 

Ukraine 

The Little Lighthouse Rehabilitation Centre 

At the moment the Centre does not operate, but they are providing accommodation for people who do not have a shelter.

Escaping war isn't an easy option for many disabled children and their families, Makariv is one of the epicentres of heavy fighting, lots of ruins everywhere, the town is constantly under shelling and is completely destroyed, houses of the families with disabled children who we support have been totally destroyed. Through volunteers, our partner is helping families move to a safer place. 

''Most people in Ukraine simply do not have the resources to make any significant food supplies, with at least 60% of the population living in poverty. Long lines at supermarkets and pharmacies occur daily during the lulls in air raid sirens. ''London Politica, Report for ChildAid 

Children's Hearts 

We are supporting families with food supplies and hygiene products. So many people have lost their homes and live in shelters. Our partner is there for the families and the children. The children who need comfort and lots of love and reassurance that the future will be brighter, and the war will end. She provides art sessions to help children cope with their emotions and something to remind them they are still children like a cuddly toy, crayons to draw and sweets. 

Thanks to the love and kindness of our supporters, we can help people escape or survive the war and ease children’s pain.  We pray for this war to end, but we know our path is long, as there is much more to be done. 

Thank you for your kind donations, and thank you for making our work possible.
