Petrivka

In October 2013 our third day care center for socially excluded children, youngsters and families was opened after a half year period of reconstruction. The newly opened center is located in a kindergarden. Petrivka is a small town with about 5000 inhabitants 60 kilometres north east from Odessa. We started this project after the request of the local administration. They had heard of the work we are doing in Odessa and asked us to help to meet the needs of the huge number of poor children and families in their area. Thanks to the financial support of the German Evangelical Chruch of Bavaria and the Martin-Luther Association Neudettelsau we were able to start the reconstruction work. Many local and international volunteers helped to accomplish the practical work. Finally on October 17th the new center was opened and now about 40 kids and youngsters attend the activities.
