We are very excited to continue our journey with partners in Ukraine. We will be partnering with Tim Case International Ministries and the Barnabas Foundation. We will be working in two villages outside of Kiev as well as with the refugees from Eastern Ukraine who have been displaced by the conflicts in that area. We will stay at a moderate hotel in Kiev, Bratislava Hotel. The land package includes intra-country transportation, lodging, most meals, security, medications and supplies. Our host organization is very excited for our team to come. Plans also are for medical students from one of the Ukrainian medical schools to help with interpretation and to educate us about their healthcare delivery. We will also be providing reading glasses - a very much appreciated service to elders.
