Project Teen Challenge women's home, Lithuania

Teen Challenge women's home in Slievana
It is always nice to introduce a 'new' country on this blog. Well ... new, Lithuania is not new of course, but it is the first time that we will support a project there.

We have been in contact with the people of Teen Challenge in Lithuania for years, although we have not been there yet (we will definitely do so!).

Teen Challenge has been active in Lithuania since 2001. There are now three drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers; two for men and a house for women.

The women's center is located in Slievana, near Kaunas. The house has fifteen beds and women can live and recover safely, together with their children! Rasa Pakėnienė is the director of the women's center.

A while back we received a request for financial assistance. The roof of the women's center is leaking and water is flowing through it. The current roof is too old to be repaired, so it needs to be replaced with a new one. 

Replacing also means insulating, so that it will stay warm inside in the winter and cool in summer. The roof surface is about 200 m2.

This means quite a big job that requires extra funds (estimated quote: 12,000 euro). We would like to help Teen Challenge Lithuania, so that when winter comes again, women and children will stay warm and dry.

If we team up, it should be possible to raise at least part of the funds necessary to complete this construction job. We hope you want to help in giving the women and children in Lithuania a new roof over their head.
