„On 2012 I came back from England - my expectation to start a new life in a foreign country did not come true. I came back without money, saw no prospects, I was depressed. I started drinking alcohol, which quickly developed into a huge addiction. I came to the canteen of the Vilies Centras, drity, frankly, stinking of alcohol. I was sure they would push me away. On the contrary, they not only fed me, but also gave me the opportunity to wash myself, get me clean clothes, but most importantly - they listened - I felt regained my humanity. Thanks to the work of the volunteers of the Vilties Centras, I made the decision to go to the rehabilitation center, where I successfully got rid of my addiction. I am currently working successfully in the field of construction, I have a wife and my own home. ” E. M., man, 40 years old.
550 people having access to hot lunches and food every working day, ensuring not only basic human needs but also we saved up to 1000 kg of food that would otherwise be discarded.
We are excited to share the great news - the reconstruction of our main center has been successfully completed. The repaired center, scheduled to open in December, provides people with access not only to catering services but also to hygiene services (showers, washing machines, new clothes), temporary accommodation in the event of a crisis, and psychological and social counseling.
We ask you to donate to the development of social services in Vilnius - help us to install a newly reconstructed center and contribute to our daily activities.
