Our Irchava community, located in Ukraine at 500 km from Kiev, regularly welcomes parents and their children for workshops and meetings where we make together small items to offer to the elderly, family or friends. In Irchava, and in Ukraine in general, there are many families where mothers raise their children alone, as fathers have to go to work far away from their loved ones, and often abroad.
Since these meetings are regular, children spend a lot of time among us. However, there is no sports field in our village, and there is no secure playground where children can play together. But we want children to continue to come with pleasure, feel comfortable, but above all they are no longer exposed to the dangers of the street.
The playground we want to create will be equipped with a slide, a carousel and benches so that mothers can stay with their children. This space will therefore become a place of meeting and relaxation not only for children but also for their mothers.
Since the inhabitants can not afford to create the playground for lack of money, we ask for the help of friends of the Rosalie Projects to support us in this step for the safety of children.
Thank you in advance to all benefactors who will help make children happier and better protected.
My name is Sr. Katarina Stevicova. I am in Ukraine for the second time. In our current community we are four sisters and we take care of children, elderly, solitary and sick in the home. A few years ago I experienced the service of the poor in Siberia where I took care of street children. I then discovered the extent of this misery with its consequences for the future. That is why I would like to improve the conditions of the children as much as possible.
