This evening at UEFA Euro 2012, host-nation Ukraine will battle it out with England to reach the quarterfinals of the competition. In advance of this battle of ‘wills over skills’ we wanted to bring you a Ukraine-themed update.
We were delighted to visit our partner organisation, Depaul International, in Kharkiv to hear their plans for Brazil 2014 and also to get an update from those who took part in South Africa 2010. You might remember four of the team. These four are Pasha, Tanya and Artem (pictured) who live with one foster-family and Sascha who lives with another family close by.
