Orphanage Children Go to Cinema

“Operation 5” was initiated by Forest Ogunyankin, a young man who was the member of youth group from Metro Atlanta YMCA that visited Georgia in 2011. The group spent 8 days in Georgia and was exposed to the work of YMCA Georgia in Tbilisi and the regions, as well as Georgian culture, traditions, etc. As a part of the visit, the group visited Kojori Orphanage, with which YMCA Georgia has been collaborating since 2003. Forest Ogunyankin was very moved with the conditions that the Orphanage residents have to live in, so he decided to start a fundraising campaign in US, later titled as “Operation 5”. His remarkable efforts were rewarded and he managed to raise about 5 000 USD.

 

Orphanage Children Go to CinemaBased on discussions and evaluations conducted during the fundraising process, it was determined to allocate the raised resources toward support of Kojori Orphanage, plus several identified underprivileged families that reside in various locations of Georgia. Overall, since July 2012 there were 7 charity actions implemented in support of Orphanage children and underprivileged families.
