Askania-Nova is a famous European biosphere reserve located in Ukraine about 5 hours from Zaporozhye.
The main attractions are the zoo with animals and birds from around the world, as well as beautiful botanical gardens, small lakes and ponds by walking paths. New Hope Center spent a great day with our staff and students, having time to spend walking, talking, and taking in the beauty of nature together. We enjoyed the incredible peace in the gardens and watched the fish swim in the small ponds.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and support in giving us the opportunity to spend a wonderful day with the kids with whom we work. We are breaking down walls that have taken years to build in these broken lives one new day, one positive memory at a time.
