What We do

ORPHAN CARE

When you ask an orphan in Russia what they want for Christmas, and they ask for a new toothbrush, socks, or underwear, you get a glimpse of the needs facing these children. Throughout the past 21 years, thousands of pounds of humanitarian aid have been provided to meet these needs. We provide Christmas, Easter, graduation gifts and celebrations, all of which bring big smiles to their faces. We’ve also provided new washing machines, security cameras, computer labs, renovated rooms, purchased new beds and other furniture, paid for renovation of restrooms, and much more. Our local volunteers share with them God’s love, sing songs, and do crafts and recreation with the children.

ART THERAPY

For many years children with learning disabilities were told they could do nothing and would never be able to do anything with their life. In 2016, Russian Orphan Care began sponsoring an art therapy program for children with special needs. From learning to hold and cut with scissors, paintings that win awards in city-wide art competitions, baking delicious cookies, and making booklets in Braille for blind children so they can learn to read, these children are acquiring skills and self-esteem. Sponsor a child for $20/month. We will mail you a picture of your child.

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING PROGRAM – THE HARBOR-NIZHNY

The Harbor-Nizhny gives young people who have aged out of the orphanage system the opportunity to have healthy and independent futures. Mentors teach basic life skills including cooking, cleaning, budgeting money, health and hygiene, and social skills. They also receive education support, legal support, and psychological counseling to help them deal with past traumas and abuse and to prepare them for their future. The residents develop self-discipline, discover hobbies that define their personalities, and get a taste of what life is like outside of an institution. Birthday celebrations, Christmas and other holidays are celebrated and are key to ensure these young people feel valued and cared for.

BRIDGE BUILDERS

Our goal is to foster better relationships between U.S. and Russian citizens. One way we do this is by working with Junior and Senior high school students to assist them with their English skills. We also invest extra time in the lives of 20± vulnerable and at-risk children by doing crafts, recreation, and sharing stories with these students. Distrust and fear have been replaced with friendships.
