On Thursday, April 19th, 2012, we received word that Oleg Sheffer had died. Oleg was swimming in a lake outside of Mariupol when he drowned. His older brother claimed his body and Oleg was burried last week in his hometown of Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine.
Oleg was born on June 30, 1991. He has an older brother and an older sister. He grew up in the orphanage in Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine. In August of 2008, Oleg came to live at the transitional living center. He studied at the trade school and graduated in 2010.
This was a tragic accident and we pray for Oleg's soul and for those who were his friends
