Here is an encouraging update from one of our Ukrainian partners Last Bell:

We work with orphanage graduates in Zhytomyr, Ukraine, including over 650 orphan students, older orphans, orphan parents, & their children.

Our youth LOVE the foosball tables that Ball Project helped us purchase for the Day Center. In the photo, the young lady on the right is AV. Last Bell has helped A & her sister by advocating with the government for housing, then renovating the fire-damaged apartment they received. A is now studying psychology and volunteers with our staff visiting a local orphanage. She & her sister are very hospitable, reflecting the hospitality they’ve received at the Day Center & from our staff.

Ball Project is thankful for our partners like Last Bell, working to build their communities & help children play.

Everyday is a great day to give, but apparently today is an extra special day to give (I guess because we spent the weekend being Thankful)…….

Last Bell works with orphanage graduates in Zhytomyr, Ukraine, about 450 last year, offering mentorship and practical help. Play is important for all our relationships, but especially for the little kids who stay at our Shelter Crisis Housing facility with their moms (who are orphans). Ball Project helped us install a trampoline, a play house, and other “at home” play equipment. Our kids are loving it!
