Yesterday saw the return visit since the holidays to the Preventorio children’s home. We went up with the car loaded full to the brim with donations of clothes toys and lots of birthday presents for all the August/September birthdays.
There was so much excitement and children so happy to see us you do forget for a moment how difficult things really are there. I am so aware of the shortage of funds but this year we really have nothing.
The generator that cools the walk in fridge gave up after running for 14 years. It had to be replaced at the beginning of September before the children went back to school and there was no money available so some staff gave up their wages to help pay for a new one, a cost of €3,500.
This is just one of the issues they had so I need to find a way to refill the pot that helps keep the children’s home afloat. We desperately need your help with ideas and fund raising.
Please can anyone help me to raise €7000 !!
It’s a huge ask I know as we all do so much in our town for the Red Cross and the Bomberos etc but I’m actually now seriously worrying about their food situation which we have always topped up and the winter fuel.
Many of you know that the children’s home is something close to my heart and has been for 10 years plus. I have seen many children come and go and grow up there from the age of 3 years.
There’s a little tiny girl arrived who is just 3 years old and although she is well cared for there my heart tells me she shouldn’t be there ?.
Please if anyone can donate something (every euro helps) Bayradio charity account is where you can help us.
