We Help Those who Need It
Ness KDC has been supporting the Oáza center, a shelter for the homeless in Bernátovce near Košice since 2011. As well as providing material and financial support, Ness staff also help develop the running of the center. During the last two years, we have built new kennels for its integrated dog shelter as well as organized food and utensil collections. We have also helped with expanding the gardens and greenhouses where center residents can grow vegetables and flowers which then serve as a source of income to help cover costs of the center.
At the initiative of staff members, we sometimes also organize special collections for worthwhile causes. One example was a Christmas collection we organized to help support the Evangelical Special Needs boarding school in Červenica, the only school of its kind in Slovakia which has been caring for deaf and blind children here for more than twenty years.
