Tbilisi: Daycare Center for People with Disabilities needs help

The Daycare Center for Social Therapy takes care of people with special needs in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.  More than 50 people come to the Center every day to learn, to receive therapeutic support, and to work, which makes them very proud and would not be possible anywhere else. After 26 years of work, the future of the Daycare Center is uncertain, because at the moment the center is lacking sufficient funds. Up until now, the social therapy project was funded mainly by larger donors such as CORDAID or Bread for the World. But these organizations recently changed their aid programs and have transferred their funding priorities to other regions. Yet, in Georgia there are no welfare projects to support those affected and which would help an organization such as the Daycare Center to survive. The small amounts of money parents can afford to pay or the proceeds gained from selling self-made products are simply not enough. In this emergency situation the people of the community kindly ask you to support the Daycare Center so that they can continue their work through next year.
