just some of the things that together we have achieved - none of it possible without God's amazing help!

School, Vocation, Career ... and Football

January 2020

We sent a cheque for £4,683 to FISCH to enable 67 children to attend school, ten to receive vocational training, three girls to begin a sewing business together, and 32 kids to play in one of the FISCH United teams. Part of the money pays for provision of uniform and stationery, without which children cannot take up their free school places (ten secondary and 57 primary). The vocational training is to provide opportunities to become taxi drivers, electricians, mechanics, and other trades. Football boots will enable the kids to play against other local teams.

Education after Hope Faded

24 July 2017

This girl had missed her chance years ago to attend government school, and so FISCH has been supporting her to attend a private school (her only option). She has done well to progress each year, and is now entering her final year (effectively A-Level 6th form). The total school fees for the year = 975,000tsh which is approximately £310 at today's rate.

We provided a grant of £340 to cover the final-year fees and other expenditure.

Hope for Tanzanian Street Children

May 2017

A grant of £2,835 to UK charity, FISCH (Future for Iringa Street Children), is providing for their needs. It was used to buy: sewing machines to help girls set up in business; musical instruments and Bibles for FISCH Church; soap and detergent; repairs for computers to enable their use in teaching computer skills; stationery and clothing for school; vocational training for one of the boys; first aid supplies; and a roofing repair.

Music in Africa

November 2014 and March 2016

We supported Paul Ssemubage (not his real name), a youth worker and musician ministering to refugee children in Africa. With a total grant of £2,673 he bought many musical instruments, music lessons for himself, and items to enhance his wife's cafe, which provides them with financial support.

April 2014

  A grant of £2940 has been given to cover the cost of buying and installing a large bouncy castle and a large trampoline at the Matumaini Rehabilitation Centre in Molo, Kenya. The Centre is dedicated to caring for the needs of disabled, orphaned and destitute children and young people, helping them reach their full potential in life and giving hope for a good future. The items have been installed in their newly-completed playground.

School Help for Ugandan Child

November 2012

Here is John, a 9-year-old child who lost his father when he was very young. We contributed £100, which covered his first term's tuition at primary school in Kampala, Uganda.

Hoist for Disabled Belarusian Child

April 2012

A mechanical hoist enables this severly-disabled Belarusian youngster to be moved into bed, bath, etc., with safety and dignity. Some hoists are built into the ceiling and so can only be used along a certain track; however this hoist is on castors and thus can be used anywhere on a suitable floor. We gave a grant of £840 to UK charity The Belarusian Orphanage Project to enable it to provide this item.

New Clothes for Russian Orphans

February 2011

We gave £2000 for new clothes for Russian orphans attending a summer camp in Estonia. "Camp Gideon" was run by UK charity Love Russia, who bought the clothes and arranged a sort of market day.

Infusion of Funds

August 2010

Having built up a sizeable sum in our Vilnius Fund - from selling CDs and cassettes - we sent it to Vilnius, where it was formally passed on to the hospital by Stephen Conlon, Deputy Head of Mission & HM Consul at the British Embassy there. He kindly produced an enlarged copy of our cheque for the photographs! They plan to use the £1,000 to buy one or more syringe infusion pumps.

Keeping Indian Children Busy and Safe

May 2010

Construction workers in India sometimes have to leave their young children to look after themselves on the building site while they're at work. A charity called "Mobile Creches" provides craft activities for these children, keeping them occupied and out of danger while also helping them to learn social and pratical skills. We spent £75 to provide them with a plentiful and varied supply of craft materials.

Laundry Refurbished at Russian School

March 2007

A range of laundry equipment, but none in working order any more - that was the situation at Spaask School - so one woman did all the laundry by hand. Through Love Russia we donated £2075 to refurbish and re-plumb the laundry, providing new machines.




"Lifeline" to a Remote Home

October 2005

Asenyevskaya Dietski Dom is a home for 25 orphaned and needy children in a very remote village, 40 km from the nearest town. The children range from 6 to 16 years. A major need was for a small estate car or minibus to enable them, amongst other things, to purchase and collect the supplies required to keep the home running. We raised £5000 for that purpose.

Cooking and Dining in Style

October 2005

We contributed £1500 to enable completion of refurbishments to kitchen and dining room at a Russian residential school, Skopin Scholar Internat. The donation also covered replacement of furniture.

Overhaul the Heating for -30 deg.C!

October 2005

At Pronskaya Scholar Internat, a residential school in a very remote part of Russia, the outside temperature can fall below -30 degrees C for a whole week! We gave £1275 for the repair and overhaul of their central heating system.

Craft Equipment for Lithuanian Camps

July 2002

We donated £100 to YWAM (Youth with a Mission) to enable youth worker Victoria Lansley to buy craft equipment for a summer camp in Lithuania for some of the local youngsters.

Convoy of Hope

March 2001

  Not only have over 500 toothaches been cured, using dental equipment you helped to provide, but also over 2000 people have heard the Gospel as a result of the Convoy of Hope.

  The Convoy, comprising just two vehicles so far, has made three major trips from its base in St Petersburg to the Ural Mountains, where Europe meets Asia. Each trip took three days and an average of 1400 miles each way. Altogether 655 people have been treated, between them having around 350 fillings and over 500 bad teeth removed. They included homeless and old people at a shelter (along with the staff of the shelter!), and pastors on retreat. An ex drug-addict, now working at a rehabilitation centre, had the roots of 15 teeth pulled out, the teeth themselves having fallen out long ago! The dental equipment was purchased from a grant provided by Natalya’s Fund.

  The Convoy team has shown the “Jesus” video (a literal portrayal of the life of Christ according to Luke’s Gospel) 41 times, and estimate that through the Convoy 2160 people have heard the Gospel message in one way or another. Forty have committed their lives to Christ.

Aid for Youngsters in Russia and Estonia

1995 - 1999

Hot water for an Estonian YWAM (Youth with a Mission) training centre, play equipment and immunisation for the Moscow House of Infants, room padding for violently-disturbed children in Moscow Orphanage 15, a large fridge for Russian   Orphanage at Solotcha, learning equipment and safe food storage for the New Life street children's ministry in St Petersburg - these needs were all met, with a total outlay of £5920. 

Incubator for Lithuanian Hospital

Autumn 1994

Tutshill Church of England Primary School, Gloucestershire, raised funds to provide a reconditioned incubator for Siauliai Hospital, Lithuania. This project came about when trustees Andrew & Chris Leighton visited the maternity unit of the Royal Gwent Hospital in South Wales, where they noticed several spare incubators available for use if needed. On the other hand they were aware that in Lithunian hospitals several premature babies would be placed sideways in a single incubator, such was the shortage of equipment.

  Update: Andrew & Chris are still in contact with the family of one of the first babies to use the incubator provided - he is now studying economics at Vilnius University! (2015)

Safe Monitoring of Premature Babies

1993 - 1994

  It is most important to monitor the oxygen level in a premature baby's blood: Too much oxygen can lead to blindness while too little can cause brain damage. In the UK we monitor levels using a pulse-oximeter, an electronic unit with a sensor that fits over the patient's finger - enabling the measurements to be non-invasive (hence safe) and continuous. In Lithuania, however, as those devices are not generally available, monitoring has to be performed by regularly taking blood samples and testing them. The sampling process is of course invasive but, more importantly, imposes a delay which slows down the medical team's response to any problem.

  In response to their requests we provided a pulse-oximeter each to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Vilnius University Children's Hospital, and to Siauliai Hospital. The total cost was £2650.
