grant funded cooker stove and dryer donated by non
Sept. 19, 2011
-- Just months after awarding their first grant, The Bulgarian Hope Foundation is seeking to make another. In late 2010, the 501(c)3 charity, based in Rustburg, VA, awarded a $1500 grant to The Cedar Foundation in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the purchase of appliances and cabinets at the charity's small group homes in Kyustendil.
The group homes were opened as the Cedar Foundation closed down a larger institution that lacked sufficient care and amenities. The Bulgarian Hope Foundation, which has a mission of improving the lives of institutionalized Bulgarians, recognized the importance of these smaller group homes in providing meaningful access to social activities and specialized care for their residents , and were delighted to award funds for two dryers, three cabinets, a sink and a Zanussi cooker. These items ensure that a group of people, accustomed to living in a large institution, have the resources necessary to learn independent living skills in a smaller, more comfortable environment.
In an effort to continue its impact on disabled and orphaned Bulgarians, The Bulgarian Hope Foundation is gearing up for its biggest fundraising goal ever. They are attempting to raise $2,500 to provide a grant that would fund a one-on-one caregiver for children in the group homes. A raffle is planned for December 10th, 2011, and details are available at http://www.bulgarianhope.org/Fundraising-Raffle.html
