"For the past couple of years we have been sometimes here and sometimes back in Ireland when little ones have passed on. There are a number of little graves in Cherven and in Gorodishche that do not have a a permanent headstone over the graves of the children and we are now in the process of looking after each grave. In the past we have managed to mark every resting place with a nice cross but we may not have the funds for that now – so we are looking at a smaller but permanent stone marker. In Cherven Children’s plot where several of the children who visited Ireland over the years now lie, there are twelve small graves needing attention.
The little wooden crosses do not last very long so it would be great to have a more permanent headstone for the children.
In Gorodishche there are also four graves without a permanent headstone and we are looking at having this done over the coming months. At the moment I am investigating prices of the total cost.
Thanks to all those who have shown interest in this task and to those who have already made a donation towards the costs involved".
