In the world of my nonprofit (Eastern European and Russian Orphanages Project) things are busy as always.

EEROP website for info on shipping and needed items. EEROP will also be undergoing some changes this month. We are planning on rebranding under the name Walking with Orphans.

Be sure to check the website and Facebook page for more information as we make the switch.
