When we posted this project on GlobalGiving, we planned that in May we would already be recruiting groups of children, buying food, toys and other pleasant preparations for the first Summer Camp in 2022 in our new building.

However, fate decreed otherwise..  And now we pray that the war will end soon and our big beautiful house will remain in order. After all, by February we managed to complete all the work by 99%. It remains only to paint the facade of the house, carry out minor work on interior decoration and interior design, to improve the territory around and install the remaining furniture.

The village on the Kinburn Peninsula, where it is located, fortunately, was not bombed and was not occupied by Russian troops. There are no military infrastructure facilities there. Enemy military forces tried to occupy this peninsula at the beginning of the war, but they were effectively counterattacked by the Ukrainian army.

However, the Russian occupiers control that part of the Kherson region where the only highway to the peninsula is located. Therefore, now you can get to the village only by boat, by water. And there is still a big risk of occupation of the villages.

We have one idea. When the war will end, we plan to create a rehabilitation and health center based on our camp on the Kinburn Peninsula, where we will help restore physical and mental health to children and families who suffered from this war. There are all the necessary conditions for the implementation of such a program. And the place where the camp is located has unique recreational properties: the sea, a bioreserve with pine trees, steppes with flowers and herbs, wild animals and silence... We love this place and we don't want it to fall into the hands of the enemy.

We really hope that all our dreams will come true. And Ukrainian children will enjoy their holidays on the Black Sea in a peaceful country.

Dear friends! The Way Home Foundation wishes you a Happy New Year! We wish you good health and joyful days!

We can't wait to share with you the updates of our project!

As we wrote in the last report, we have finished the repair works inside the house for our Children`s Summer Camp on Kinburn Spit, Ukraine.

Thanks to support from GlobalGiving, we have managed to do many more important things this fall.

First, we have insulated and plastered the entire facade of the house (about 380 sq.m.) and we plan to paint it in the spring.

Secondly, we have completed two additional small rooms on the ground floor: one room will house the camp office, and medical center will be placed in other one. By the way, there is no medical center in this village and there is not even a pharmacy, so we want to help the community and make it accessible not only to our vacationers, but also to locals.

We also have built a large wooden terrace in front of the house and a new fence. Here children can relax and do exercise outdoors.

In addition, we have bought kitchenware and appliances for the camp kitchen, furniture for the training hall, bed linen and blankets. We have paid for the repair of the SUV, on which our vacationers will go to the beach and into the woods.

We start this year in a great mood! After all, a beautiful and large camp building with comfortable conditions is finally ready to receive guests - children and families from vulnerable groups who need rehabilitation, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The only thing left is to improve the territory of the camp: to arrange paths, a sports ground and places for lounge and games. We will be sincerely grateful if you will help us to cope with this.

We have absolutely amazing news for you! With the support that we received through GlobalGiving, we have achieved our goal!

In July, our Foundation received a message from GlobalGiving that Airbnb Fund decided to give us a donation of $ 20,000 for the implementation of our projects. We were so excited, happy and grateful because we could finish the house for our childen`s summer camp with this money before the end of the warm season this year!

So we have completed communications and internal repairs in the remaining six rooms of the house, have bought and installed air conditioners, boilers for water and furniture for rooms, have bought a boiler for heating.

Now up to 30 children may live and have rest at the same time in this bright, comfortable and cozy house on the Kinburn Spit. A pine forest, a unique nature reserve with thousands of birds, a clear sea and lakes are very close by. Children from poor families in Ukraine, many of whom have never left their villages or cities, will be happy to stay here.

We just have to improve the facade of the house and the area around it now. You can help us with this!

During the 13-17 September 2021 Little by Little campaign of GlobalGiving, all donations up to $50 USD per unique donor will be matched at 50%.
