Love's Bridge' is making a difference in the lives of thousands of Russian orphan children yearly. They are a small team of foreign and Russian volunteers who give their time and efforts to the goal of improving the lives of as many children and needy people as they can.

For almost 2 years they have run a center for street children in Perm, and 6 months ago they opened a shelter for these kids, where they now have almost 20 kids staying.
