In the Kaliningrad region, part of old East Prussia, our long-standing partner, the “Healthy Generation” Fund, will lose the old school building in Schatrowo next year, which is operated as a rehabilitation center for women with drug problems, because the previous landlord wants to sell the house for a high price as soon as possible.
The management team under Pastor A. has therefore decided to build a new building. A piece of land has already been bought close to the old center. Construction costs for the “Schatrowo” project were estimated totalling 70,000 euros. The land and the shell of the building are to be financed by 100 sponsorships at €700 each.
The EMG board unanimously decided to finance ten of these sponsorships through our German partner.
The first €5,000 could already be handed over to the Russian management team on March 8, 2017, together with a delivery of valuable relief supplies. A further €7,000 was provided by additional donors for the extension and equipment.
We are therefore grateful for further donations for the project 2016-051 – new therapy center Schatrowo.
