We are in the midst of a multi-phase building project for up to 55 orphans in Odessa, Ukraine and up to 30 displaced mothers with children. This home is expected to be the largest orphan home in the state of Odessa. Giving Hearts has already provided funds for the foundation and three story structure, in addition to the heating, plumbing and electrical work. As of this writing three pregnant mothers were offered a place to live and in turn decided to not abort nor abandon their children. Four other mothers are in the process of moving to a temporary shelter as this building is not yet completed.
WAR update: this home is in the final phases of construction and will not only be used as an orphan home and displaced mother’s home but for tens of displaced families from Nikolaev and other war impacted regions fleeing in southern Ukraine.
