Summer camps

The most important miracle and experience of the "Circle of Friends" ministry last summer was the children’s camp in Alexandria, August 20 - 30.

First Kirill`s time in camp

Our first story is about Kiril, who came to the camp for the first time. He comes from a family with three children. He is twelve. And he is in a wheelchair.

Two weeks out of invalid house

The second story is about a camper who has been living in a home for disabled for a year after graduating a specialized boarding school.

Is he able to speak?

The third story is about Sasha, a 9-year-old boy in a wheelchair, with cerebral palsy and an open wound on his back, which bleeds occasionally...

Prayer needs

Dear prayer partners, we are still looking and waiting for a place that the Lord will show us to continue the ministry.

Hosting in Germany

For the third summer in a row, our young travelers not only visit different parts of Ukraine or the United States, but also explore Europe, namely Germany.

Latvia - Red Cross

On one morning in June the office telephone has rang:
- Hello, this is the Red Cross, Ukraine. We want to collaborate!

Hosting in the USA

On August 27, two groups of children, a total of 53 passengers, were departing from Seattle and New York...

Adoption

Currently, we have the privilege to participate in five adoption processes, all of them are at the stage of preparing the necessary documents and collecting papers

ADOPTION

This year it will be the 10th anniversary from the moment of adoption, specifically - from the decision of the court and our return home with three children, although originally we planned to come back from Ukraine with one child.

TRIPS TO BOARDING SCHOOLS; FAREWELL BELL

The season of trips to orphanages ended with the Farewell Bell ceremony in the schools of Ukraine. A lot of our children are now graduates.

PRAYER NEEDS

Currently the ministry is focused on preparation for the summer camp, which will be held August 20 through August 30 in the village of Alexandria, Rivne region.

WORK WITH GRADUATES. SOCIAL APARTMENTS

Boarding school graduates is a special category of our children.

SCHOOL OF VOLUNTEERS

In 2010 our small circle of friends started meetings for volunteers, those who were eager to serve children in boarding schools.

DAY CENTER

Another school year is completed in our Day Center. So many events took place during this period!

ClubOk

The ClubOk`s meetings were held on schedule – on every first and third Saturday of the month. With God's help, it was possible to bring children from boarding schools.

ADOPTION

The adoption project apparently will grow in 2018, including international adoptions.

TRIPS TO BOARDING SCHOOLS

In the first quarter of the new year, trips to boarding schools were challenged through cancellations or delay due to the flu and whooping cough outbreaks. Boarding school where quarantined.

SOCIAL APARTMENTS BOARDING GRADUATES

Our hearts hurt not only for orphans. We also worry and pray for graduates of boarding schools, because they are at risk and socially inept. There is a great need in ministry to those children.

PERSONAL CONSELING, WORK OF SPECIALISTS (psychologists, disability specialists, and speech therapists)

In the Day Center we run individual counseling of a speech therapist, disability specialist, psychologist, and also a drama class. These tools are really helpful for the development of children with special needs. These activities help them to speak, move and interact with adults better.

HOSTING: IN UKRAINE AND THE USA
