V.O.W. (Visit Orphans and Widows)
V.O.W. is Rock Valley’s outreach based on James 1:27, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.”
Kedesh Santuario – Rock Valley is supportive of the work being done for orphans and widows at Kedesh Santuario.
“Kedesh Santuario is a boys home for 30 boys between the ages of 9 and 18, located near Beira on the east coast of Mozambique. The boys are orphans or they come from unsafe homes due to abuse, neglect or extreme poverty. Kedesh gets it’s name from the “cities of refuge” in the Bible (Numbers 35:6) that were built for people to have refuge from people pursuing them after they accidentally killed someone. So for these boys it symbolizes a place of refuge from things that would otherwise have pursued them such as abuse, poverty and life on the streets.”

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.
