There is more to life that matters to me other than owning and running Vika’s Essentials. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I feel moved to share the story of "True Hope Ukraine" again. For several years, Vika's Essentials has been helping support "True Hope," a Christian Orphanage in Kryvyi Rih, in Ukraine.
We met Max Fetisov - founder and director of "True Hope," speaking at a local church in Minnesota. What we learned about "True Hope Ukraine" was profound! We decided to share part of our revenue with them every month and be a mouthpiece to the world about the incredible things happening there.
"True Hope" provides children with much more than safe shelter and food. As an attorney, Max helps those in need restore legal identities, meet medical conditions, and receive needed disability benefits.
I call this extraordinary young man "Man with a Big Heart. " Max 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, human trafficking, drugs, poverty, and rejection would be waiting for them... We are excited that God led us to "True Hope" and that we may share their story.
Once renovated, 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 has a huge impact!
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 in this world!
