What we do
We serve the displaced and disabled in Ukraine by building homes, providing humanitarian aid, creating employment opportunities and supporting them emotionally
'Project Lighthouse' aims to bring light into places of darkness in practical ways.
Local churches and community leaders open up their church premises, care centers, orphanages and shelters with the following items offered that they can provide for people in need:
(a) diesel generators
(c) satellite internet
(d) food and medical supplies
(e) counselling and prayers
Generators are also provided to identified hospitals to help with much needed power for operating needs.
With the war situation that has been going on, 85% of villages and infrastructure had been destroyed, resulting in Ukrainians losing both their jobs and homes.
Proceeds of the emergency prefabricated houses aim to provide local employment and houses to live in.
These (insulated) houses include:
(a) a kitchen and toilet
(b) is winter-proof
(c) is relatively bomb-resistant
We have identified two main groups in this most difficult time:
(a) pregnant mothers who have lost their husbands
(b) people with special needs/disabilities
We hope to extend financial, social support and counselling services to helpless mothers who struggle with the decision to abort their unborn babies.
Food, infant care and medical supplies are provided to address the immediate concerns of the lack of basic needs.
We want to distribute as many audio bibles to people with no access to them, such as frontline soldiers and vulnerable elderly with little mobility.
In wartime, a simple gift can bring a lot of joy and comfort, especially to a child suffering trauma. We are giving out audio bibles in the form of a sheep soft toy for Ukrainian children. The sheep serves as a trauma therapy aid for little children as well.
