One of our guests in Chisinau, Jeff Ball, is raising funds for a school in Ukraine that will go towards building of a new toilet. The school is one of many in rural Ukraine that has an outdoor toilet. The toilet is nothing more then holes in a concrete floor where students, teachers, and people in town all come to use the bathroom. No plumbing, no heat, no way of actually cleaning it, a huge problem and serious health concern for teachers and children. Please, visit Jeff's support page and make a donation that will get the school a new toilet and washing station. Thank you!
