The Break is Over & it's Time to Get Back to Work!

February 26, 2013, 20:00 3394 Author: Mariya Semashkina, translated by Anna Oliynyk www.deti.zp.ua After a two-month break, the construction works in Kalinovka are back on track to complete the Happy Home-2

After a two-month break, the construction works in Kalinovka are back on track. With your support, we hope to complete the construction this year to allow nine more special children live and study in the same comfortable conditions as their healthier peers and friends from the first Happy Home.

After the winter break, our house builders finally removed the stumps, which rooted deep into the foundation of the building and could lead to its destruction at any moment. Now it is necessary to complete the rows of bricks, some of which fell out, and cement the gaps that appeared after the stumps have been removed. After it is done, the recently updated schemes will be used for finishing the column to fix one of the walls. Later the pavement and the inter-floor covering will be done.

These construction activities which are to take place in the nearest future will cost us UAH 35.000 (approximately 4,290 US dollars). After it is done, we will be able to start working on the roof. Besides, very soon we will need your help to make the front of the house, which will cost UAH 46.000 (approximately 5,640 US dollars), and the flooring (UAH 85.000, or approximately 10, 416 US dollars).

We would like to thank all our donors who have supported and keep on supporting the Children’s Home in Kalinovka. Let’s make it together and give nine more children a chance to learn what family comfort and kind care are at least in such a home adapted for them, if real family atmosphere is so far not available for them…

This is how the Happy Home-2 will look like after the reconstruction is completed
