The fall of The Soviet Union left Ukraine in facing social and political upheaval. However, a pastor and civic leader from Mariupol Hennadiy Mokhnenko made a name for himself by forcibly abducting homeless drug-addicted kids from the streets of his city. He founded Pilgrim Republic, a children's rehabilitation center and home for former street kids.  With his help over the years, Mariupol is no longer crawling with homeless kids. Many credit this largely to his efforts at Pilgrim. In the meantime, Hennadiy's center has evolved into a more nebulous institution.
