At the end of her visit Beate had shared her impressions from the passed days. She had pointed that “The Way Home” Foundation is making a tremendous work in the fields of social help not only to the IDP families and children, but also to the poor and crisis families and children of Odessa region. « Your team is just great. You are really do your best to help everyone who is in need. I understand that it is hardly possible to fully help everyone who is applying for help, but you really try to do this impossible thing. I hope that the money that we hope to collect by showing the documentary about you – will help you project to develop».
