USA Hosting

Preparation for the winter Hosting program was very intense this year.

Trips to Boarding Schools

Fall was rich in events and activities. Visiting boarding schools is a type of a ministry that is always active and robust.

School of Volunteers

Volunteers who minister to the children are committed, well equipped, and wonderful people. We welcome everyone who chooses the way of helping children!

ClubOK

ClubOK’s Christmas celebration on December 22 warmed and pleased all its participants - the team, the children and the parents.

Day Center

The Day Center has worked for four years admitting children from disadvantaged families and children with special needs.

Day of Prayer for Orphans and Hosting in Ukraine

This year, the Day of Prayer for Orphaned Children fell on Sunday, November 11th.

Hosting in Germany

Not so long ago we worked on the flyer about Hosting project and the words were born: “Hosting is an opportunity to change hearts, circumstances, and fates”.

Adoption

In a wonderful way, God blessed the part of the Circle of Friends ministry related to supporting adoptions.

Computer courses

The computer class was introduced less than two years ago. And, like a living organism, it has gone through the stages of development and initial growth.

Prayer needs

We’ve been through a difficult but a blessed year of serving Ukrainian orphans, children with special needs, and families in crisis.

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.

HOSTING

Our summer Hosting time has come. This summer, 53 children from different parts of Ukraine will travel to Christian families in the US and Germany.

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

Christmas Hosting Program has just finished. It was attended by 14 families from Ukraine and 20 from the US. And we have already started preparation for summer hosting!
