About Us

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.

A New Name – Same Organization

Throughout the years, people have asked “What is Fory Charitable Trust and what does it do?” Simply, our name did not speak to what we did. To address these questions, the Advisory Board voted to change our public-facing name to Russian Orphan Care. We are the same organization with the same team of people dedicated to our mission – to improve the lives of orphans in Russia
