Dear friends of Oscar & Lora Foundation in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria
Here I am at our new animal shelter location. We are already working on the fence and the work is progressing well. Some of our future inner structures will need to be covered so we can keep the dogs warm in winter and comply with government regulations. We estimate the total cost of the building to be about 5500 euros which includes the building for the kennels itself, the fence, the gate and also securing access to fresh water and electricity for the premises. By the way, the guys who are helping with the construction work now have all grown up in the same orphanage where I lived as a kid. It’s an opportunity for them to earn some cash and I have already secured their pay. It is a daily struggle to find financial help. So far we have bought the concrete on credit, and the same applies for renting the building equipment. These costs have to yet be covered. Any help, even the minimal one is a blessing for us. This is an ambitious project that will not only provide shelter for the homeless dogs but the aim is to also create future employment for the young people from the orphanage where I grew up.All this is my life’s mission. There is a lot of work ahead of us - the terrain is rough and has to be levelled out and covered in concrete. I have lost sleep over worries. We simply cannot fail to complete this project. We beg you to help if you can, financially or by sharing the fundraiser with your friends. Your help means Life. Life for more than 100 abandoned, abused and suffering dogs who will find a safe place and future full of hope and light right here.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
