Kilometers Complete

Week Three: Zhytomyrs’ka and Khmelnyts’ka Oblast

Wow! 3 weeks have flown by!

Even heavy rain and cold weather will not stop our walkers! The Walk-a-thon Team has covered 240 kilometres so far!

Another week in Zhytomyrs’ka oblast, and on the final day we walked 25 kilometres and crossed into Khmelnyts’ka oblast.

Supporters come from all over…

At Help Us Help the Children, we are inspired and humbled by every donation we receive. Every donor makes a difference in the life of an orphan child and allows the HUHTC family to continue working towards our goal of improving the quality of life of orphan children.

The Walk-a-thon Family has been spreading awareness along their route as well as fundraising – and we were extremely touched to receive a donation from the owner of a cafe we stopped into along our way after she heard our story.


Visiting Romanov Orphanage in Zhytomyr

The last day of Week 3 was an intense and emotional one – we visited an orphanage for boys and young men with intellectual and physical disabilities.
