2018 >2021 - Jõgeva County

The club has remained focused on families we visited in 2018 in Jõgeva county.  Several families' needs were of such magnitutude that it took time to meet them.  We visited those families again before Christmas 2020. 


The home of the family with 13 children remains without indoor plumbing.  We met with the local government's officials and they promised to get water works to the house by the spring of 2021.  The club will pay the owner's share of this installation's cost.  


The home of the family with six children had a fire shortly after they had moved in.  Fortunately there was no loss of human life.  The club had paid for indoor plumbing in the house.  


The club paid for the much needed replacement of all windows at the apartment of a two child family.


At Christmas, the club gave to each child of the above families a 50 euro per item Christmas present.  We also collected information about furniture needed by the families for our plan to purchase the items at Tartu's reusable items centre and deliver them to the families
