How to Help?

We need your support, please help ukrainian orphans and orphanages!

“Small streams flow together to create great rivers!”
We very strongly encourage small donations to be made every month or every couple of months. No donation is too small. And we welcome larger donations, which we are happy to discuss with prospective donors.
Here is a list of actual projects needing your support:

  • Second “Mother-Baby” department planned at NBH.
  • Boarding school in Zurupinsk needs a new bathroom. A cost estimate for the renovation of the first bathroom was made. The work will cost about CHF 6’000.- (6,000 US$).
  • Yaroslav was operated in Kiev Cardio Center (KCC) already and now he has to go back for a checkup. And this costs US$ 100 (~ € 100 or ~ CHF 100).
