The Institute Council planned a service project for a hospital for mentally handicapped women here in the city. Forty blankets are needed for the hospital, and Saturday evening we made half of them. This was the best turnout for a service project since we’ve been working with the YSA. There was a wonderful spirit in the group as we all worked together on the project. The blankets will be presented to the hospital at Christmastime.

Vasia, one of our Institute members, went with us to get the fleece at Barabishova, one of the biggest outdoor markets in the country.

The project is being coordinated through the Humanitarian couple here in Kharkov, Elder and Sister Burr, from Orem, Utah.
