New beds for the children at the children's village in Ladimirevci
Angel for a Day in Croatia – June 2016
The children's village in Ladimirevci was established many years ago and currently looks after around 80 children, who are lovingly cared for in 16 children's village families. The institution offers children a real home and allows them a child-fair development within a family environment.
When the Child & Family Foundation and myWorld Croatia Community learnt that the children's village urgently needed 47 new beds, slatted frames and mattresses, as the old ones had been in use for over 20 years, they immediately decided to join forces and offer help. At the Lyconet Elite Seminar with Eric Worre, a call for donations was therefore made and many were ready and willing to help this and two other projects of the Child & Family Foundation with extremely generous contributions.
Together with those in charge of the children's home, the exact requirements for the beds were defined, offers from Loyalty Merchants were obtained, a date was fixed and with the help of numerous volunteers from the myWorld Community in Croatia the beds were finally assembled and put together.
On the 10th of June the stage was set: Over 30 voluntary helpers as well as several myWorld Croatia employees and the Child & Family Foundation came together to fulfil their promise. With the children's help the beds were put up in record time. Furthermore, a barbecue was organised for all participants who were able to relax and enjoy the day after all the hard work was completed. This opportunity was used to gift the children with presents, such as three much needed School Starter Kits as well as four footballs.
The director of the children's village brought the evening to a close with the following words "This was an extraordinary day on which much was accomplished. Together we were able to create something amazing and also have fun while doing it. I wish everyone who has participated in this project all the best and would like to thank them on behalf of the children for their brilliant help."
