Christmas was a little brighter this year for all of the children that we serve in Odessa! The smiling faces in these pictures are a result of your care and generosity. On behalf of all of the children and the entire UAC-Ukraine team, THANK YOU!
While in Odessa, volunteers Kathy Forbes, Neena Griffin, and Sasha Griffin (Neena's son) visited Oblast Pediatric Hospital with UAC staff members. At the time there were 5 abandonded infants who were staying in the hospital for care. One was infected with AIDS, and another was paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury.
Recently UAC volunteers Neena Griffin, R.N., and Kathy Forbes, along with their own teenagers, visited children from Orphanage #7 in Odessa. This orphanage is home to many medically needy children, including several with cerebral palsy.
