A mark event took place in the “House of an Angel” children's town located near Yasna Gora in Hoshiv.
 
On Saturday, July 23, 2022, a “House of an Angel” consecration took place conducted by the abbot of the Basilian Monastery in Hoshiv Fr. Maryan Grobelnyi with brother Ioan. On this day, the “House of an Angel” was crowded. In addition to the children who live with us, many guests came to visit us – neighbors, residents of the community, volunteers of the foundation, and our friends who were involved in the implementation of the project. We are glad that we were together on this memorable day and thank everyone who came and shared this joyful event with us!
 
 
 
 
It took less than a year for our team to complete the work that had been started and to adopt children who found themselves in difficult life circumstances in the children’s town for a summer vacation.
 
We thank our partners and friends – the Philip Morris International company, the Ukrainian Association in Central and Eastern Switzerland, the Ukrainian community in Brooklyn and California, who financially support us and give a new life to the Children’s Town.
 
We continue to work and improve the Town, because there is still a lot of work, and even more plans and ideas ;). We still need your support and attention! Join in, friends! Our bank details are always available in the “How to help” section of the menu.
 
For reference. The children’s “House of an Angel” is located in the middle of the forest in the Chornyi Dilok tract, which has its own unique history. Because of monument protection works on the territory of the tract, it was found out that the old Hoshiv monastery was located in Chornyi Dilok. Over the centuries of its existence, the monastery has changed its location for several times. But all this history started in the Chornyi Dilok tract. It was here that archaeologists found and recreated the appearance of the monastery in the 16th-17th centuries.
