WHY CITY OF GOODNESS IS NEEDED?
Every 3 days 250 children are taken to an orphanage in Ukraine, and one child dies there every 3 days! 95% of these children could never get to an orphanage because they are not orphans, but children from poor families!
Unfortunately, it is easier for child services to take out a child from a troubled family than to help a family overcome difficulties. These toddlers will spend all childhood in an orphanage, because adoption with living parents is impossible.
Unfortunately, poverty becomes an obstacle for a person to receive education, medical help, protection of his interests. But poverty is not a sentence for a loving family. Poor parents – not bad parents! And if you support the family when they need it, you can change the whole life of the child. We can prevent children from getting into orphanages!
Many mothers live with children below the poverty line, in dire conditions, without the basic things they need. Often, a difficult situation cannot be resolved with one action: money, things or words of support. For example, some mothers were raised in orphanages or in disadvantaged families themselves, they don’t have any childcare skills and do not understand the “mother-child” relationships. They have never been hugged or loved, taught how to cook food, take care of themselves and others.
That is why patronage inpatient supervision and training, support without condemnation are urgently needed. Such comprehensive assistance should be provided by teachers, pediatricians, psychologists, in communication with other mothers and in an atmosphere of friendly relations in the crisis center!
WHAT IS CITY OF GOODNESS?
City of Goodness is a charity nationwide project that will become a large social service and shelter for the poorest families, with the goal to keep a child in the family.
In the City of Goodness, we will fight for every mom for a child. Homeless mothers, mothers from orphanages, mothers crushed by domestic violence and indifference will find shelter and support there. Each mother will receive an individual plan for her personal growth, with plans for future education and gaining a profession. The required duration of stay in the City will be determined in accordance with the tasks and goals set. The main goal is to provide a job for the mother, so she will be capable to look after herself and provide and her baby. City of Goodness is the place for which bureaucratic writings, religion, nationality will not matter. The City of Goodness is a point of support for children and mothers who will be able to live here until they overcome the crisis until they feel free and confident in society. The main feature of Cities of Goodness is a baby with mom!
HOW DO WE BUILD A CITY GOODNESS?
For almost a year now, there has been a project that has become the basis of the idea of creating a City of Goodness – the Center of Kindness “Martha’s Dream” in Chernivtsi. 100 mothers have already found support there: orphans, homeless, outcasts, and victims of domestic violence. The graduates of the center now have a profession, a job can rent proper apartments on their own. They have overcome the crisis and are now helping other women cope with distress. Their 230 children have been rescued from orphanages, many of them are children with disabilities.
Today, Martha’s Dream leases a house for $ 1,0006 which is provided by our benefactors. In the presence of their own home, these funds would cover the maintenance of the home with utility bills and food, and most importantly, would allow them to take care of children and create a free rehabilitation center. Owning a home would be a guarantee that tomorrow moms with children will not find themselves on the street because of the decision of the homeowner to sell it or rent it to others. Having its home foundation will be able to receive the long-awaited grant from Luxembourg, which will provide the City of Goodness with all the necessary equipment. This grant, like dozens of others, can only be granted on condition of ownership of the property, not rent.
We managed to buy unfinished construction and land, thanks to the support of those who care, we raised for this 55,000 USD. So now construction is underway, which requires considerable funds. After all the work we want to see the three buildings of the City of Good, with a total area of 1500 square meters. We are looking for architects, superintendents, owners of construction companies, plumbers, furniture manufacturers to get involved in the project implementation! All help is important to us!
The City of Goodness will not be funded by the state, it exists only because of the indifferent people who are concerned with the lives of disadvantaged children!
In this City, anyone can be a missionary of kindness, caring for children. The names of philanthropists who will help in the acquisition, construction, arrangement of the area of charity The City of Goodness will forever remain on the front wall, where brick by brick the names of people with a sincere and kind heart will be embedded!
