Ice skating for TC women's home, Ukraine

A month ago we wrote about the fact that there would be no Weissensee fundraiser this year, but that we had already selected a great project: the purchase of a house in Berdychiv, Ukraine where women can live with their children. Women who come out of a life of addiction, prostitution, and sometimes homelessness.

We did not expect a big freeze in our own country, but it happened! And so Krijn Donk decided to go ice skating for 200 km (!) and well on the Rotte Lakes. Krijn said afterwards:

"It was not easy. I experienced a lot of hardship because of the wind and because I have not been able to skate much on outdoor ice this year. But, we had good quality ice and wonderful and beautiful scenery. Very Dutch."

Together with two ice skater friends, he rode the 200 km in a good time of 8 hours 48 minutes.

Many donations had already come in for the women's home in recent weeks, but last Saturday's skating campaign brought in even more. ­čĹë We have already received around 5,500 euro, which is great of course.

In the meantime, we have donated our pledge of 7,000 euro to Teen Challenge Ukraine. Last week we received a message that Global TC also pledged an amount for this project.

So, there is not only money to buy the house, but also to renovate and furnish it! You see, God always ensures that needs are met in a special way.

Thank you all!
