Current Appeals

Volunteers at a fundraising event

We are currently fundraising for:

1. Projects offering shelter to Ukrainian refugees in Romania 

Since the beginning of March 2022, two of our partner organisations in Brasov County, Romania, have been assisting Ukrainian refugee children and their families, as they flee to safety in Romania. FAST has become a refugee centre, with beds available for 75 people. Mostly children and their mothers are staying at the centre. Casa Mea has taken in a family (a grandmother, mother and three children) and is willing to help more families too.

It costs around £12 per day to house a person at FAST’s centre. The costs of heating are very high during the cold weather.

Any support towards providing the refugee children and their families with shelter and food will be so gratefully received. It is possible to make a donation here.

With thanks to Jan, the founder of Casa Mea, for sharing with us this photo of the children and teenagers at Casa Mea with the Ukrainian family.


2. Assistance for young people in Ghana to study

New Life in Ghana runs a children’s home, school and community outreach programmes. Our supporters have assisted with many projects at New Life over the years, and some have been sponsoring children too. Since 2016, CHW has been able to assist young people, as well as children, and help was then given to enable the first two young people to study.

Now, more of the young people would like to study. The subjects they are interested in include teaching, nursing, tourism management and estimation and quantity surveying. Help towards the costs of the course materials and of tuition fees, will allow the young people to attend local universities and colleges in Ghana. Your support will make such a big difference in their lives. You can make a contribution here.
