Last Bell works with orphaned youth and families in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. Last year we reached over 600 youth and family members; this year it’s a little more complex because of the war. We’ve begun helping refugee families, while we continue to meet the needs of our community at home and take care of our own evacuees in other parts of Europe.

In June, our Stop the Cycle moms’ group was able to start meeting at the Shelter facility again. These photos are from a recent meeting. The Shelter is a place where our families feel safe and the kids always have something to do, thanks in part to the Ball Project’s help! Orphanage graduates’ children love these indoor and outdoor spaces that were created just so they can move and play.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners in Ukraine & around the world working faithfully to strengthen communities & help children play.
