Support for the Orphans in Ukraine

by Mark Davis on May 29, 2014

Dear Friends . . .

The need to support the orphans in Ukraine has never been more real or urgent.  The conflict in the Eastern parts of the country take focus away from many other needs in the country and we can’t allow the little ones to slip through the cracks!

We continue to be actively involved in supporting the orphanage in Anna’s home town of Nikolaev, Ukraine.

This is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. This is the center where unwanted children are brought. There are over 140 new-borns and infants under 4 years of age at this location.

They rely on help to provide for their ongoing needs for medicines, diapers, physical therapy equipment, and building renovation that are not provided by the Ukrainian government.

We are in need of regular contributions to help with this cause.  This is our way to give back to the community that has been such a blessing to us.

Watch these videos and see the why we’re passionate about this cause . . .

Hey Mark and Anna,

Thanks for supporting such a great cause.

I was wondering if a visit to the orphanage is something that we can be sure to experience with a DC event? I was also wondering if their was anything that we could try to bring for the children inside our luggage, or is it best to just make donations? I could see having some extra space in my luggage for a pack of diapers, but then I can also see where they may prefer to only use locally purchased items for the children.

Thanks for all that you both do!!

Hey, Mike:

Thanks for your love and heart for the children. No we can’t guarantee a visit to the orphanage on a Quest Tour. The last group of men who visited when with our staff after the rest of us had left. There was just so much going on and the priority for the men is for finding a life-partner. However, we do try to make the visit happen on the tour, and our local staff visits regularly to bring supplies.

As far as what to bring, we could ask for a list that we’ll make available. Men can ship those to our office in Nikolaev or bring them with them, but I’ll leave that up to Anna to develop.

Our relationship is growing and so are the ways we are finding to help.

Keep up the love and passion for the children and do what you can!

Mark

The monthly option was easy. Certainly a good option for those of us challenged by finances. Each month I work an hour for children half a world away instead of that bottle of tequila which I will miss but I can live with that. Happy new year kids.

Mark,

I wanted to open this question up so that you can share the answer with the other members of the Tribe who may also have this option available,

My company will match my contribution for the orphans but they are asking for an “EIN” Number I think they called it.

It is the non-profit number that is registered with the IRS so that my employer can set your foundation up as donating foundation which they can support.

My employer will match up to $750.00, so I figure that between my donation and my companies match, I will be responsible for one months contributions to the foundation, based on the Tribes $1500.00 / month goal.

Another option which my company offers which I also looked into was to provide hours of volunteer time, where they will contribute to the organization $10.00 / hour for my efforts. Well, they will only donate the money to he organization which you are supporting through your time. So I will volunteer my time and the companies money to the local kids. And then I will make personal donations with company match for the orphans.

Perhaps you guys have similar options available to you as well?

Crazy Mike

I adopted children here. Anyone who wants to adopt from Ukraine can call Hopes Promise in Castlerock, Colorado.

Hello Mark & Anna:
Your work at the orphanage is magnificent. However, I was wondering if you have any statistics on how many of the little ones are adopted. Also, what facility do the children move to when they out-grow this orphanage? I imagine the needs at the next facility are just as great or maybe even more so. The statistics that I have seen for orphans as they continue through the system brings tears to my eyes. As I said, your work is magnificent…but as always, we must continue the struggle.
Mark, twenty years from now no one will care what clothes you wore, what car you drove, or how much money you had in the bank, but the lives of hundreds of children could be completely changed for the better simply by the work you do today…and that is a legacy to be admired.
Keep the faith.

When I adopted from this orphanage, I was told that the toddlers were sent to another orphanage for older children.. I believe about 5 years old. When they reach about 16, they are either sent to institutions where they are forgotten, or they are sent to Sinthropyl (wrong spelling) where they live on the streets. This is way south (Crimea region) an live on the streets. If they are disfigured, then they do not have much chance to have a normal life. They are outcasts. The children are starving and must be saved….all of them.

Any business that does charity or help for others in need would continue to succeed. That is what my mother said. I would like to support the orphans…

Mark and Anna, thank you for the video, I can now show my kids where the came from. They do not like it when you take pictures when you are adopting so we only had a few. where are you located?
