School children in action

Sometimes there are initiatives that leave us speechless! Just after the summer holidays we received an email from the teacher of group 8 at the Queen Beatrix School in Papendrecht (right, that is where we are located) ... whether we could use a gift for one of our projects.

Official opening Bertine House
We then sent her information about Bertine House in Ukraine. Do you remember? The women and children from the rehab home in Donetsk had to flee for the war and they were without a permanent address for a while.

Earlier this year, a big house could be purchased in the city of Poltava and last September the new Bertine House was officially opened. The house is open for mothers with their children that come out of sometimes horrible situations: addiction, prostitution, abuse and poverty. They can safely live  there and they get the chance to experience the love of Jesus.

The children of the Queen Beatrix school collected 350 euro for Bertine House. A gift that can be used for buying food, paying the heating bills and the purchase of necessary household items

On behalf of the mothers & children: thank you!
We are very happy with this gift! Before we transfer the money, we want to ask whether there are churches, home groups, organizations, companies or families who want to follow the heartwarming and inspiring example of the children at the Queen Beatrix elementary school?

Within Europe additional gifts can be made payable to: St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275 BIC: RABONL2U. Make sure to mention: Bertine.

When in the USA, send your tax-deductible gift to Eastern Europe Outreach, make sure to mention TC UKRAINE BERTINE.

Together with the students of the Queen Beatrix school we can help to provide a warm and safe home for the mothers and children at Bertine House this winter!
