Frogwares fundraising days for a small orphanage in Korosten, Ukraine, in May earlier this year ended up in 7500 game bundles sold. Collectively we have managed to raise around $30 000 (minus some significant charges and fees prompted by the bundle facilitator) which is really a big sum of money!
Kind ladies who are taking care of the orphanage are very thankful for the donation that they received and they would like to use this “gift” the best as they can. Therefore they hope you will understand their willing to help the little ones as well as the elderly people from Korosten. Here is their story:
“Korosten is a small city, 170km west from Kiev. This city was devastated by Chernobyl catastrophe. 3 years ago we heard about 2 single women from a religious congregation living among the people of Korosten; their goal is to share the same day life with love.
When visiting these women the first time in December 2010, we were choked by the poverty and the big gap between Kiev, the capital, and Korosten, a forgotten city on the road to west. Since that day a group of volunteers, French women, decided to help by bringing need to orphans and elderly people.
We have decided to keep a part for the elderly people house, lost at 10km from Korosten in the middle of nowhere. Their condition of living is really basic. We have decided to buy new beds to make them feel more comfortable until their last days.
The biggest part of your donation, however, will be kept for the children. We are now debating to open an “inside school” providing an English corner and an informatics’ corner as well to offer an international education to those children. We think that nowadays it is very important to speak English and to have informatics’ knowledge for the career. We know this is an ambitious project with a long-term engagement. We really want to offer a better future to these little orphans. Your gift is a proof that we can hope to start this project and hope that it will last forever.”
Thank you very much from the Korosten team and Frogwares studios.
