Raising for funds for orphanages in Belarus

Well, this year it is an emergency to raise monies for much needed help and basic but essential supplies to these orphans. This year is so much different to all the other years where a team of volunteers with IODP charity always traveled for Xmas to bring the magic of Santa Claus to these beautiful orphans. As all travel is restricted, so to is the physical and financial support of any charity, so it’s absolutely vital we still raise monies, that, more than ever are needed right now.. Please please, give what ever you can to give a gift to children that don’t have anyone.. click and give what ever you can afford.. it’s how we are able to put smiles on these beautiful little souls. This was our mission of 2019/20: On The early hours of New Year’s Eve again and 14 volunteers from Team Stevey J will be joining up with IODP to travel to Belarus for a week conducting work to improve living conditions for orphans, many of whom are abandoned babies and survivors of nuclear fallout zones but also special needs children and children who victims of abuse. We will also be supporting orphans in a children’s prison, providing educational books and educational facilities that assist these kids with a positive transition back out to everyday life.

Whilst there, we will purchase much need supplies for the orphanages (basic equipment/medication).

The team will also be giving as many children as possible a Christmas they will NEVER forget, dressing up as Santa and presenting them with little gifts and loads of love, we will work around the clock to upkeep their homes and living conditions.

IODP is an amazing charity that operates as close to 0% admin as possible. The charity has raised €4.5million and ALL of the money has been spent on improving the orphanages - bed linen, books, playgrounds and hot water for showering.

I will be deeply thankful if you could donate what ever you can afford for this special cause. It may not be a lot to us but every euro makes such a difference to an every growing amount of abandoned children with parents to love them or even hold them...Let's put a smile on these kids faces!

Many many thank you’s
