Charity online action to support orphans from Mariupol. A series of events in support of Ukraine charity online auction.
From February 15 to 24 International Women's Club of Moldova - IWCM with the support of the Embassy of Ukraine in Chisinau will hold a charity online auction for the benefit of Ukrainian orphans from Mariupol, as well as collect charity funds during a number of events dedicated to the 2nd anniversary of Russia's aggression against Ukraine https://iwcm.md/ The purpose of these events is to support an orphanage in Mariupol, where 17 children are currently staying 😇
The Ark of Peace Children's Home was founded in 2016 near the city of Mariupol, Ukraine, to help children affected by the Russian-Ukrainian war. Under the leadership of dedicated individuals such as Volodymyr and Oksana Zavadsky, the center has been a safe haven for children in the midst of the turmoil of war. Working with a Christian vision and in collaboration with volunteers, the center offered various activities and support services for children, including educational programs, creative activities, and psychological counseling. Despite all the challenges, such as a full-scale war in 2022, the Ark of Peace team continued its mission by moving to Zakarpattia, Ukraine, where it continues to care for orphans. IWCM invites you to join our efforts to support the Ark of Peace Children's Home.
