Previous Appeal: Dancu Play Area

In October 2008 we launched an appeal to raise money for a children's play area in Dancu. Children in Dancu and surrounding villages have few toys - and had no recreational facilities. On 1st June 2009 we were able to open a play area with swings, slides, seesaws and sandpits - and a volleyball court and basketball hoop for older children. We also provided a picnic area and benches so families can come together. Local craftsmen and villagers helped prepare the site.

At the opening event, over 750 children (and 250+ adults) joined in the fun, with face-painting, family photos, ice cream, games and of course the chance to try out the new play equipment. The play area was officially opened by the regional president and the village mayor. Since then it has proved extremely popular and is well-used! Thank you for your support turning this vision into reality.
