Ukraine

Working with our partner, Little Lambs, we have shipped over 5 tons of high protein food and shoes to the orphans in Ukraine. The Ukraine has over 100,000 orphans, 90% are social orphans due to alcoholism, abandonment or imprisonment of parents. Many times, these orphans grow up in large state-run homes housing over 200 children. The government mandates orphans leave the orphanage after 9th grade – are they ready to live alone? In addition, 800,000 children are currently living in private and state-run orphanages, foster care or are homeless.
