Today was spent in Stara Zagora with our friends Gancho & Milena from World Without Borders. With them we visited a protected home for young adults, a day centre for disabled children and a kindergarten in the fast-expanding Roma community. It was encouraging to see the work that is being done in this challenging place and to hear form professionals and volunteers who give so much to helping people at the margins of Bulgarian society.

We then made our way over the Shipka pass to snowy Gabrovo to deliver presents to the protected home for 15-18 year olds that is run by FSCI, our sister org, and also to House of Opportunity Gabrovo. It was great to end the day surrounded by so many familiar faces and friends and to see how the young people in our care in this city are thriving in the stable, loving environments that our amazing staff and volunteers provide.

Find out more about House of Opportunity.
