PostSubject: New Projects for 2015   Mon Jan 05, 2015 6:36 pm

First topic message reminder :

We have taken on 5 more projects for 2015 that makes 27 now, so will need your support some are small others are much larger

PROJECT (1) THE HOMELESS SHELTER SILISTRA
There are only 4 rooms in this establishment, a bathroom and a small kitchen. It is only open for the winter months and can take in only people who are recommended by social services.. The building was an old Kindergarden school and a section has been cut off for the homless shelter. It is not a great place but it is clean and has the basic facilitie needs.

We visited with 3 of our student helpers from the Maths school, who did two Christmas boxes for them as a class project. I asked the deptuty director how we could help and she said they need 20 sleeping bags, some towels and soap or any kiind of toiletries. So we will do our best to get what we can for them.............All donations gladly received

PROJECT (2) THE POOR IN BABOOK VILLAGE SILISTRA
This is much bigger project we met with the Mayor Konstina and said might be able to help the families. However, we do not give money but would be happy to help with clothes, toys linen and such like. The Myor was deligted as many of the families have nothings at all. We will visit some of the familes in due course. There are an average of 70 children of all ages. In additions to the normal collections we will try to do some Christmas gift bags for the children or at least one toy each so will need lots of small toy and soft toys a main pesents. If you can help please let me know thanks.

PROJECT (3) SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOL FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
This special needs school have 8 to 10 children so not a lot is needed just now. We will start off with very basic needs and see how it goes from there. They need things that they can hold like rattles, tactile items that make noises, coloring book, crayons, learning toys. Soft toys. Would be very grateful for your support..

PROJECT (4) THE CHURCH SILISTRA
The church is building a new extention, my understanding is this is to be kind of centre where the poor can come for a help with items like clothes, food and essentials We can only help them with a few boxes of clothes, toys and maybe some tined or dried food so again if you can help please let us know. Thank you so much

PROJECT (5) SILISTRA HOSPITAL
We have been supporting the Silstra hospital for a while now we brought tnd donated hem new wheelchairs back in 2008. in 2013 nd 2014 we brought boxes of baby items for the Maternity unit. This year we wll be working on clothing and small soft toys for the Maternity unit. We also need bed llinen and gowns for the wards. Again i you can help please let us kinow thank you..

As you know Dougie and I, Berni do evertything voluntary, we collect, sort, pack, label and pallet. It is a lot of hard work but cerainly worth it all. . We set up a small none profit charitable organisation, back in 2009, Our cause It is not about money only donated items but of course we are not able to pay the transport costs fr the lorry to Bulgaria ourselves any more therefore, we have to find a sponsor or raise funds to cover these cost. This year 2015 we have been lucky LWM Consultnts Ltd will sponsor the transport . As you can imagine this is just brilliant!! All we need to do now is fill the lorry with donations so if you can help with anything plese let us know. Thanks a million. Berni &
Dougie xx

Here is a quick updated for 2015.

We made the delivery of over 10 ton of goods to Bulgaria but this time all the goods were delivered to our community hall in Bulgarika.  The mayor gave us permission to use the hall which was a blessing to us for storage.  All our friends in the village and the mayor help us unload the goods. Then we sorted them into organisations over the next few days. Then we invited everyone organizations to come and pick up the goods. TV and media were there too but we did not get to see any of it unfortunately, but it is in the system and someone somewhere will find a copy of the film or newspaper and send it to us in due course. Within a few days we were visiting organizations to open the boxes and share the goods it is all on our facebook pages.  The only people that did not take the goods were the church, they came asked what was in the boxes if new or old than said they would pick up next week but a month down the line they did not pick up - it appears they contacted the mayor direct and asked could they leave the good for 6 weeks, this annoyed me as it had nothing to do with the mayor in the first place - so I send them a message to say the goods had to be moved but a week Saturday otherwise I will distribute to other worthy causes.  Sat and Sunday came an no trace of them so Monday I contacted a friend who contacted the village mayor and Jilfond and they all arrived on Tuesday to pick up the 60 odd boxes of stuff allocated for the church.  We kept back 8 boxes. We todl the church the boxes had gone and they made arrangements to pick the remaining one up the next day.  Guess they are off our list from now on.

Everyone was deligted with the items so many people beneifited from the extra boxes it was amazing to see so many happy children and adults.  All our own organizations orphanges, disability centre were well pleased with everything.  They orphanages now seem to have everything they need but I suppose the way the social services are changing things now clothes, shoes, underwear coats will always be needed.  

Big changes for next year as Social Services are opening small homes for orphans and eventually the bigger ones will fade out.  We now have 3 such homes in Silsitra and it appears the baby orphanages will no longer be as this will now be a day centre many of the babies have been adopted/fostered or moved to different areas. So many changes, but thankfully they have decided to keep the children in the Dimcho now as S/S wanted to moved them to the old people's home outside of Silistra and the old people into the Dimcho. But after long talks all is well again.
