Project expansion overnight Home, Belarus

We have donated several times to the work of Mission Return (Teen Challenge) in Belarus. Read our posts about that HERE.

Director Sergey Tsupa of 'Overnight Home' in Baranovichi recently sent an email with the application for a new project.

In addition to the crisis shelter for women, there is also a section on the other side of the building where homeless people can go for food and a bed. When someone seeks shelter, a medical check is always carried out in the clinic, as is protocol.

However, if no one is present at the clinic late at night or on weekends to do such a check, the homeless person is officially not allowed to stay. That of course causes distressing situations.

The team would therefore like to set up a separate room where new guests can stay until they can be officially admitted. A kind of isolated room. Fortunately, there are still unused spaces in the mission building (a former school).

Some work will need to be done in order to make the living spaces presentable. in particular, heating must be installed in that particular room and several connected rooms and the corridor. In short, another renovation is just around the corner :)

According to the estimates, a total of 2,700 euro is needed to initiate all this. We want to help them, especially because we have seen with our own eyes what a great job is being done in Belarus among addicts and homeless people.
