LifeNets – Orphans and Street Children Program in Vinogradov, Ukraine
LifeNets is a non-profit organization that develops programs offering practical assistance to promote the well being and self sufficiency of disadvantaged people throughout the world and, where possible, encourages them to pass on their LifeNets benefit. Rock Valley specifically supports LifeNets’ Orphans and Street Children Program in Vinogradov, Ukraine. LifeNets provides funding for a soup kitchen to feed about 40 street children and orphans in Vinogradov, Ukraine. The children are either orphans or from negligent or otherwise dysfunctional parents. Some children are from families so poor that there is simply not enough money for basic nutrition. They are cared for by Pastor Vasyl Polichko and his wife, Irina, who have completely given themselves over to caring for these children.
