Our ministry first began in 2000, when our Executive Director, Sue Marshall, traveled to Russia and saw first-hand the needs of orphans in Russia. Sue began developing relationships with orphanage directors and staff in Russia. Through the years, the Lord used her, expanded her deep love for Russia and orphans, and placed people in her path who could help advance the ministry. Local volunteers were recruited and equipped to work with the orphanage staff and children. Fory Charitable Trust was created in 2008 to carry on the legacy of Wilma Fory’s support of our work with orphans in Russia.
