WEEK FOUR: Khmelnytskyj Oblast
The HUHTC Team has officially reached our halfway mark! This week we visited a 16th century castle, spread awareness about our cause at an ethno-cultural festival, gave several interviews and marvelled at all Ukraine has to offer!
A week spent in the historically important Khmelnytskyj Oblast – we encountered castles and festivals along our trek.
An absolutely inspiring week!
The HUHTC Walk-A-Thon team has had a wonderful week in the oblast of Khmelnytsk. The weather became agreeable and we were able to spend some time exploring the beautiful host villages and historically significant sites we are trekking through.
The Walk-A-Thon Team has met many so many inspiring people along our route. We have spoken with everyone from regular citizens to orphanage directors to local dignitaries. The HUHTC team is always pleasantly surprised with how generous and helpful everyone is, and every once in a while we meet people along our route who want to get involved with the project. This week we were lucky enough to meet such a person – the Director of an Ethno-Festival held in Starokostyantyniv, over the weekend of Ivana Kupala. With 10,000 attendees annually, the director thought it was fitting that we spread awareness about our mission to improve the quality of life of Ukrainian Orphan Children to the people in attendance and hand out literature – which we were happy to do!
