The International Women’s Club of Tallinn, with your help can improve the living environment for the children of Väikemõisa Small Children’s Home.
The Children’s Home provides a home for approximately 40 children from 0-10 years old. Many have severe physical and mental challenges. Children come to the home from all over Estonia.
We are helping to give some of the most disadvantaged children in Estonia a future.
In 2007, we raised money to renovate the home’s bathrooms, where donated new bathtubs have been installed in rooms which are literally falling apart.
Finally, we would be grateful, as will the children and staff of Viljandi Children’s Home, for ANY support and donations to enable them to improve living conditions!
