Project heater Hostel Białogardzie, Poland

Teen Challenge re-entry Hostel Białogardzie
Our Weissensee fundraiser 2018 for Bertine House in Ukraine is in full swing. Donations and pledges are coming in on a daily basis. Meanwhile, we continue with our 'regular' projects, because requests for help are  always coming in :)

We received a message from Jan & Malgorzata Kwitatkowscy from Poland. They have been involved in the work of Teen Challenge among drug and alcohol addicts and homeless people in Poland for decades. They run Hostel Białogardzie in Bialogard, in the north-western corner of Poland.

The hostel is a re-entry facility. People who have completed the program in a Teen Challenge rehabilitation center can go to the hostel for the final learning phase. They will be prepared for return to society. There are currently 15 guests at the hostel!

Oops, beyond repair
Malgorzata writes: "In all these years we have seen and experienced many miracles, especially healing and deliverance. We have struggled with many difficulties as well, but God has always guided us!"

Currently, their biggest problem is the old heater that is beyond repair. 'We are sitting in the cold now,' says Malgorzata, 'we are not able to buy a new heater but we always believe God wants a good life for us. '

Of course we would like everyone to be warm and cosy, so we have promised to help them with a donation.

According to the specialists two heaters have to be installed: a small one (1,500 euro) for hot water supply and a large one (5,000 euro) for heating the entire house in winter. Both can burn on wood and pellets.

Well, it is easy to understand that this will be a huge expense, especially since the program partly relies on donations. We hope you join us in investing in this. The (future) guests in the hostel will be able to enjoy a warm and safe house for years to come.
