SPORT TOURNAMENT in Novo-Nikolaevka orphanage

New Hope Center had the privilege of putting together a sports team and heading to Nova-Nicholaivka orphanage, about an hour and a half drive from Zaporozhye. One of our friends, Yuriy, who was on the team, purchased and brought basketballs, volleyballs, sneakers, a ping pong table, etc. to give to the orphanage that has about 260 kids. The team was met by a very warm welcome, a concert by the kids, and a huge lunch.

Their basketball and volleyball teams challenged ours in tournaments and won!
