of the children from Cherven orphanage are brought here to Tarasiki when they come of age. We
comae there to find those kids. This place was in a very poor condition. Now however help is underway.
A major project is underway in Yazovki Adult Institution as the building of a house for independent
living gets underway. The project is the idea of Edel Smith from Doonbeg and she has been very busy
over the past while fund-raising for the project.
Yuri Kruk, who is a building coordinator on the Belarusian side, has got everything organised over the winter – the foundations went down before
the winter arrived – and now he has the blocks and materials in place as we await the arrival of the
Gang from Offaly to come and do the blockwork.
On April 9th
now on site and tearing into the work.
the Offaly Five arrived ready and eager for work. Noel, Jimmy, James, David and Pat are now on site and tearing into the work.
Vova who lives in Yazovki is ready and willing to help the Offaly lads when they arrive!
Another group of men are planning to come on May 22nd
lads to get the walls up in the next week and have the structure in place by then.
We will keep you posted on the progress!
