Last Bell is committed to serving orphaned youth and orphan-parented families in our community, as well as neighbors impacted by war. We’re meeting the material needs of our youth and families, reaching out to refugees in our city, and supporting our own community members who’ve evacuated. Please pray for our staff and our youth during this time.  

Last Bell

In Ukraine, many children in state care still grow up in orphanages, isolated from their culture. When the last bell rings for graduation, teenage orphans enter a bewildering world alone, with minimal life skills and no one to love or support them.

In the city of Zhytomyr, two hours west of Kyiv, Last Bell meets these young people in their deep need. During the present crisis, we’re helping youth and families evacuate, supporting them logistically, collecting and distributing humanitarian aid, and continuing to mentor and encourage all our orphaned youth and families at home and abroad.

Two women, one a teen and one an adult, stand in front of green foliage in traditional Ukrainian dress.
