The school year in Ukraine is coming to an end.
the orphaned and vulnerable children we serve celebrated educational accomplishments at Lifesong Ukraine’s annual Celebrate Life festival. Over 85 families, 150 children, including refugee children, families in crisis and single mothers, participated.
