Project Passenger van Teen Challenge Berdychiv, Ukraine

Teen Challenge Berdichyv, Ukraine
If you search in the column on the right side of our weblog for the tab 'key words' and click on Berdychiv, you can find all the messages we have written about the work of Teen Challenge in Berdychiv, Ukraine over the years and that is quite a lot!

We not only visited on several occasions, but we also provided financial support for projects such as the animal barn, the expansion of the men's house, the local youth coffee house work, the purchase of the women's home and of course the annual summer camp.

Last summer we were there again and it is such an inspiration to see how they are working with little money and resources but with great enthusiasm to give men, women and young people a new chance in life and hope for the future.

The old and faithful Mitsubishi
They drove us around in the old Mitsubishi which was living out it's final days. We asked director Sergey Romanenko what the mileage was ... "Probably more than a million" was his answer. A while ago he emailed us with the message that the van had given up altogether and whether we wanted to help raise funds for a newer passenger van.

The van is used to transport men, women and children from the rehabs, to the city, to the church, to the coffee house or to the doctor when necessary.  They are currently looking for a good, reliable, not too expensive passenger van. They will need at least 3,500 euro in order to purchase such a vehicle.

What do you think, can we raise the needed funds in a short time? Sure, we can! If you want to support the work of Teen Challenge in Ukraine, please send your gift to IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275 BIC: RABONL2U St. Traveling Light in Papendrecht. Make sure to mention: VAN.
