We all know what is going on in Ukraine. It’s a scary, scary situation. People are terrified and panicked, running from their homes.

Now, can you imagine trying to move 145 children out of their home?  Many of whom are special needs? Some of whom are Bedridden?  Along with caregivers? Me either, but that’s exactly what’s happened in Donetsk.

The kids from the Shakhtyorskiy orphanage had to evacuate. They had to leave because the fighting in Donetsk was too dangerous.

Many of these Bedridden Orphans came from the Torez orphanage. A few weeks ago the Torez orphanage was bombed.  Blessedly, none of the children and adult orphans with special needs who live there were hurt (although, a few of the caregivers were). They did survive, though, Thank God!

But war does not know boundaries, and there are a lot of people in a lot of trouble. I received this e-mail from Life2Orphans: STATE OF EMERGENCY AT THE DRUZHKOVKA ORPHANAGE, DONETSK, UKRAINE, Druzhkovka orphanage is now overwhelmed with 375 orphans in an orphanage that did house ONLY 230.  The Shakhtyorskiy orphanage had to leave the area of fighting and evacuate their 145 orphans and caregivers to the Druzhkovka orphanage. They are now bursting at the seams and need our help immediately!!

After transferring the orphans from Shakhtyorskiy the children are now sleeping on the floors on mattresses side by side.  They had no additional beds, but they have found enough mattresses for all the orphans. The caregivers are sleeping wherever they can in the orphanage.  

Please note these are the former Bedridden boys and girls from Torez, and they are now together at Druzhkovka.  So happy to say, The Individual Orphan Caregivers are still with their children


THEY HAVE MANY NEEDS THAT ARE URGENT:


Water – The water delivery system for several cities in the Donetsk Region has been damaged by war activity.  They are having difficulties with their water/well and they need to have clean water.  It is an expensive project because the water is in an area that is deep into the soil.  Druzhkovka has a need for $2,000.00 to be used for digging, materials and costs of fixing their well. 

Sanitary - Washing Powder, Toilet Paper and Cleaning Sponges

Hygiene - Toothpaste/Toothbrushes, Brushes, Potties, Hand and Body Soap, Bath Sponges

Food - Oats, Vegetables, Meat, Fruits, Juice, Flour, Oil, Canned Meat/ Beef, Macaroni, Rice – If you would like to choose the food - DONATE FOOD

Formula - Formula/Specialized Formula - Peptamen and Clinutren, Baby Cereals, Fruits and Vegetables 



Diapers

Sanitary Napkins

We have estimated a cost of $5,000.00 to help the situation at Druzhkovka. $2,000.00 is for the well and the other $3,000.00 is for formula, food, sanitary needs, hygiene, diapers and other related items. 

No one can deny these children and caregivers are desperate! Water, Food, just the necessities of life is needed to help them survive this crisis.
