|Winiarczykowka gang :)|
This past summer we gave a donation for a new sewage treatment plant to the rehabilitation and crisis home of Teen Challenge in Winiarczykowka, Poland.
In the meantime all necessary documents and permissions have been obtained and some inspections have taken place (read: lots of paper work and official dealings). Now they're waiting for the go-ahead sign, so the contractor can begin the digging.
|Work shop in the basement|
During our visit in June we were shown around the whole house. Yes, we even got to look in the basement, where there is a small workshop with tools and also the heating system. Contrary to most houses in eastern Europe, Winiarczykowka is not being heated with wood, but with oil.
Each winter the enormous tank needs to be filled again, which costs several thousand euro's. Money that comes in through donations and fundraising. Traveling Light has a warm heart for the work of Teen Challenge in Poland, so we would like to encourage them with a gift towards the purchase of this fuel.
Janusz en Bogusia Gornicki (the directors of the center) have opened their doors for elderly people as well, mostly the lonely and weak. It is important to offer them, not just a safe place, but also a warm place to live! The winters in Poland are very cold and on the streets or in a poorly heated house they would not survive.
It would be great if we could bless them with a heart warming gift of 1,000 euro.
