The Nová Perla has already been prepared for its first creative guests, but the war in Ukraine has changed everything. And consequently we are really glad that people on the run can find refuge with us and everything is turning out well.
Perla is one of the most beautiful places we know, so perhaps for a while it can alleviate the grief over the temporarily lost homes and the worries about their loved ones.
There are now Ukrainian mothers with children in the lovely residential studios of Nova Perla, and we are trying to do everything to make them feel comfortable.
What we will pay and what we can get - thanks to your contributions.
Maintenance and safe operation of the building. Heating, energy, waste and drinking water. Minor repairs and modifications associated with the change of use of the studios into adequate living spaces. Services and aids related to the needs of mothers with children. Expert services.
Why do we have a chance to be a safe haven.
We do not have to pay the rent because the property belongs to the Divus Publishing House, which provides it free of charge for this purpose. We obtain most of our food and basic necessities in permanent cooperation with the food bank and charity free of charge. We received most of the equipment as gifts from the friends of Nová Perla. Our friends really help us a lot all the time.
We keep it brief for now, because there are just few of us and we don't have time to turn round. But we will keep you informed. You can follow our work on the New Pearls Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/cityperla
