Children's rooms

Having collected all forces and having created Public Youth Center - Mercy Center for the risk group children in the most unfavorable part of the town, Mercy Center goes further and Mercy Center does not stop on achieved. Mercy Center wants to help as many poor children as it is possible, that is why we decided to create a children room just inside the communal houses. For today Mercy Center have created two children rooms.

The main purpose of these rooms is to distract communal house children from street and offer them trying another lifestyle, give them a possibility of alternative activities.

Many children come to the Public Youth Center - Mercy Center but for some other children the center is situated far from home. So we decided to create a children room inside the communal house (Kreenholmi 32 Street). Having made the analysis of the situation, we have found out that 60 children 5–16 years of age live there.

Together with the tenants of the communal house Mercy Center made repair works and order in the children room that was given us for use from the town. There are a hall and a playing room. Since March 2004 children have come here to play different games, to make handmade cards and souvenirs. In the end of every day all children get tea with sweets. It is certainly not the real supper for them but some pleasure at least. In June 2007 the children room moved into other communal house on Kreenholmi 40.

Since April 2005 another children room has been working (Võidu 17 Street). Small children 2–6 years of age are brought here by mothers who are not able to stay with children during the day or to send them to kinder gardens. Children come here since the morning and stay during the whole day. Since the very morning these children are taken care of, are fed and we offer them many games to play. Elder children also come here after school. Step by step this room is improved where every child can always find love and care.

For the children of this communal house it was a good opportunity to spend their time here with use. Since April 2012 we had to close this place because in the Summer communal house on Võjdu 17 should be closed. Some families moved to other communal houses and children come to Children's room on Kreenholmi 40 or to the Mercy Center on Võjdu 17E.
