Love’s Bridge renovates the entire property, including the piping, and in February Perm’s first Day Shelter is opened. Street kids come to eat a hot meal, get cleaned up, receive medical attention, and spend time with the volunteers.
Love’s Bridge and Zashita rent an apartment, where street children can stay if they have nowhere else to go. This was the first shelter for street kids in Perm. Children living here went to school, and were given incentives to stay off the streets and study, including new clothes, excursions and swimming lessons.
