Story

We're two students and travelers from Ukraine. We believe that people should be able to travel as much as they wish to - and on our Unkrainian video-blog we're showing exactly how easy and fun it can be.

We also believe, though, that one deserves a good clean warm shower every once in a while. As extreme travelers in about +35 Celsius we know what difference it indeed makes. Unfortunately, some 100 disabled children in a boarding school in an orphanage X don't have this luxury.

This is how we're bringing this possibility to them. We're fundraising for a boarding internat-type school (due to the reality in Ukraine they wished to remain undisclosed) in Kyiv oblast, Ukraine. We call them orphanage X. We hope that we would be able to provide children with new refurbished shower cabins.

Please give to the hitchhikers and showers!

Stay Unkrainian - a Ukrainian who is no longer limited to Ukraine!

Hey! So we have left Edinburgh and right now we're on our way hitchhiking back home. And the best return route should go through Luxembourg, that's why we're here - celebrating the Independence Day of Ukraine! Greetings from Unkrainians to all Ukrainians!

On 15 August 2013, the day 24 of the trip, perfectly as planned, our hitchhiking expedition Unkrainian reached Edinburgh, UK. Here in Scotland we are staying for 6 days to participate in the conference, catch up on sleep and, of course, the materials of our travel blog! Cheers!

This was a very worthwhile exercise, carried out with dedication and enthusiasm by two very special young men. They are a credit to both this fund raising cause and to their Country.
