£440raised of £3,300 target by 11 supporters

    Weʼve raised £440 to Help fund the replacement of the asbestos roof of the Children's Centre in Reni, Ukraine we supported for the past 10 years.

    Maidstone, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 24th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We have supported the work of Dr Potgieter and his family in Reni, Ukraine for the past 20 years.

    Although they pioneered many projects that makes a real and significant impact on their community, the project that is close to our heart is the children's centre Raduga, that provides education, food and care to preschool children who come from needy and challenging family backgrounds.

    The building for the children's centre is in desperate need of a new roof. Additionally, asbestos was discovered in the roof. They will not be able to survive another winter and face closing down if not replaced soon.

    The replacement will cost $6000 and I want to see if we can raise 66% of the cost.

    This will ensure that they do not have to use any of the operational funds used to feed the children, paying staff and the day to day running costs.

    On my own £3100 might be a huge amount, however together we can achieve it...

    31 people giving £100 is £3100
    62 people giving £50 is £3100
    100 people giving £31 is £3100
    310 people gaining £10 is £3100

    Please contact me if you want to hear more or share with people who might be interested in helping me make a practical difference to these children and support this worthwhile project.
