Bodi with Tikva friend
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend 3 incredible days with the adorable children of the Tikva Orphanage in Odessa Ukraine. While deeply saddened by the circumstances leading the children to the orphanage, I am inspired by the promising future that Tikva provides for these children. The Tikva staff displayed boundless energy and loving support for each and every child in the Tikva family.
I am most grateful for the time I have enjoyed with the Tikva kids and staff, and now, for the opportunity to help this incredible cause. Come be a part of something special !! Please join me and Bsamim on our mission in contributing to, and creating awareness of, Tikva.
Love, Peace, Hope,
