Having stayed away from Ukraine because of the troubles there for the last few years, some of us at FYP have decided we must go and pay a visit to our project out there. During the last week of March seven of us will fly out for a five day visit to our project, educating 47 disabled men at Kalinovka orphanage. We will also visit the Happy Village to see the progress being made there. The Happy Village was set up by Happy Child Ukraine and represents the ideal ‘next stage’ in caring for our project members.
The Happy Village is slowly being built to accommodate families who foster people from the state run orphanages, giving them a real chance at family life. It was founded by Happy Child, the charity we have been working with in Ukraine for many years now.
FYP continues of course to support our group of men – see latest photos below – but will now also donate some funds to the Happy Village project.
We will report back with more photos on our return!
