At a GlanceLifesong Ukraine seeks to connect not only while children are in the orphanage walls, but also walk with them as they transition into adult life, hoping to break the cycle of the orphan.
There are so many ways you can help us serve orphans in Ukraine. your financial support and prayers help make our mission possible!
Many children that live in orphanages have no hope of ever being adopted. To connect with these children, Lifesong has built a partnership within the Ukrainian orphanages improving the living conditions and helping provide for the children’s basic needs.
To invite spiritual discipleship and training, Lifesong hires national Christians to work full-time within the government-run orphanages creating what we call Constant Christian Presence (CCP). In each orphanage, Lifesong renovates a ‘room of hope and trust’ and supplies it with books, games, and videos where children can come to learn in a comfortable and safe environment.
To prepare the children for their future roles in society, Lifesong provides practical training with farm animals and equipment, sewing machines, baking equipment, and computer labs.
Upon graduation, orphans would typically have little or no guidance with their futures. Lifesong offers a graduate program to help these young adults transition successfully into adult life, giving them the support and accountability they need. Transitional housing is provided along with weekly Bible studies, counseling, and transportation to church.
In addition, we also have been supporting an active indigenous adoption program since 2008. Over 140 orphans have been placed in 35 Christian Ukrainian homes giving children forever families.
