Old, helpless and lonely … according to the State statistics committee in Ukraine every fifth elderly person is alone, among them there are also those who are not able to take care of themselves independently.
Average pension in Ukraine today equals to $65.00 per month. Due to social and economic crisis and military conflictin the country, the economic meltdown has left elderly struggling to survive.
Non-profit charitable organization "Global Christian Support" is building a house for elderly people living below poverty line, homeless, abandoned or not loved by their family. We want to provide them all the help they need: take care of them, give them spiritual, social, medical and psychological assistance.
Here are some pictures of what we have already done:
The Mercy House will consist of 3 parts:
- Basement: Administrative part, medical center, sewing workshop, storage room, boiler room.
- 1 floor: 9 living rooms, a leisure room, a room for hygiene.
- A separate building for a kitchen and an dining room, an area of which is 56 m2.
The center can accommodate up to 36 people.
We will be grateful for any help from your side and we are ready to give you a report on the work that are done thanks to you.
The opening of the center is planned for the 4th quarter of 2019. The address: 37500 Ukraine, Lubny, Volodymyrskyi Ave. 200/2.
