British Woman Helps Orphans in Bulgaria
For the past six years, Jenny Marshall of Chippenham, has taken children from an orphanage in the Bulgarian mountain village of Lipnitza on a two-week break to a resort at the Black Sea.
Orphanages in Bulgaria close for two weeks in summer and kids in Lipnitza usually would end up on the streets where they beg for food or turn to crime.
On the two-week break the children are taken to a hotel in Kranevo. The cost of providing the trip is about GBP 4,000. The Trussell Trust, who Marshall volunteers for, provide the children with a break as a way of keeping them off the streets.
