Restore a Child is building four schools in Ukraine: Kharkiv, Bucha, Luviv and Carpathia.
2011 - Present
Restore a Child started work in the Ukraine in 2011 and for many years we mainly helped children with their educational expenses and food and medical needs for refugee children in their own country, the result of the Crimean War with Russia. Then in 2015 Dr. E.G. Moses recommended that we renovate a basement in a church in Kharkiv for a vibrant school. Norma Nashed visited all these four schools in 2018 with Dr. E.G. Moses. Parents testimonials are superb about the quality education their children receive.
Kharkiv or in Russian Kharkov is located in the North Eastern Ukraine 35 km from the Russian border. Many refugees fled from the East border with Russia and were refugees in their own country. Presently, Kharkiv is a major cultural, scientific, educational, transport and industrial centre of Ukraine. In 2016 and 2017 we completed building nine classrooms in the basement of the Adventist church. Norma Nashed met many old people from Kharkov who refuse to speak Ukrainian. They still speak Russian and feel they belong to Russia.
Luviv (Lviv) is the largest city in western Ukraine and the seventh-largest city in the country. Lviv is a city in western Ukraine, around 70 kilometers from the border with Poland. Traces of its Polish and Austro-Hungarian heritage are evident in its architecture, which blends Central and Eastern European styles with those of Italy and Germany. In High Castle Park, the mountaintop ruins of a 14th-century castle provide panoramic views of the city’s green-domed churches and the surrounding hills. The school is in high demand and the school had a building next to it. Restore a Child helped them purchase the building and expand the school
Bucha is a city in Ukraine's Kyiv Oblast. Administratively, Oblast is an administrative division corresponding to an autonomous province. See more. it is incorporated as a city of oblast significance. Its population is approximately 36,971. Our purpose was to built a quality Early Childhood Center which we accomplished in 2018-2020. The building is two stories and one level is used on for Spiritual services. Children receive education plus spiritual guidance and learn healthy nutrition.
Rauion is a second level of subdivision in the beautiful Carpathia Mountains. Together with Estephan, a local businessman, we built a three-floor boarding school to attract young people from all the Ukraine. We helped with establishing a modern Early Childhood Center. By far it is the most modern high quality rounded education we have around the world. Their kitchen provides the most healthy meals to students. Students excel in Science, Arts, Sports and Music.
All the four above schools were built with a grant from Dr. W. Busse and the Bainum Foundation in Washington D.C.
