In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

In a world of uncertainty and chaos the most vulnerable are orphans and the elderly.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving I feel moved to share with you the story of "True Hope Ukraine" again.  As you may remember, part of Vika's Essentials revenue every month supports "True Hope", a Christian Orphanage in Kryvyi Rih, in Ukraine.

Last year we met Max Fetisov - founder and director of "True Hope."  What we learned about "True Hope Ukraine" was profound!  And we decided to create a "mission" to spread their story here in America.

"True Hope" provides children with much more than safe shelter and food.  As an attorney, Max helps those in need to restore legal identities, meet medical needs, and receive needed disability benefits.  

Some people would call Max a Hero. I call him a “Man with a Big Heart.“  He is a voice for the silent ones - the orphans.

"True Hope" builds workshops and teaches trades that provide children with skills they need to work and earn money as they start their adult lives.  Without this help, what is waiting for them is human trafficking, drugs, poverty, and rejection... We are excited that God led us to "True Hope" and that we may share their story.

When the 3-story building renovation is done, the "True Hope Center" will house 120 teens and young adults and offer training in different skills: English, photography, computer programming, hairstyling, sewing, and more!  All under one roof.  For now, their transitional apartments are spread all over the city of Kryvyi Rih, where they are based.

One dollar goes a long way in Ukraine. $25 can buy many meals for orphans.  A $5 or $10 automatic monthly donation from many caring people would have a huge impact!

Please take the time to view the link  and  Youtube video to see how God works in this poverty-stricken part of the world.

Your generosity enables "True Hope" to continue to house, feed, and educate these children.  Here is a link for your donation.

Together we can make a difference!
