Orphans in Ukraine

Share the Love - Bibles for OrphansMeet Kiril. Kiril is two years old and lives in a hospital for children with tuberculosis. Both of his parents recently died of TB, leaving Kiril an orphan.
Each year, over 17,000 children become orphans in Ukraine – some, like Kiril, as a result of the death of their parents, but most due to abandonment or termination of parental rights. Unless these children are adopted or fostered, they grow up in institutions that do not adequately prepare them for independent living upon aging out after 9th or 11th grade. Consequently, an estimated 40% end up homeless, 60% of the girls are trafficked into the sex trade or engage in prostitution, 70% of the boys turn to crime, and 10% of aged out orphans commit suicide before the age of 18.
Thankfully, there is a growing orphan care movement among Christians in Ukraine! Through the Bibles for Orphans project, you can come alongside Ukrainian believers and make a difference in the life of an orphan. You can provide children like Kiril with God’s Word and it’s message of HOPE. 
This "Map of Orphanhood in Ukraine" was created by our friends at The Alliance for Ukraine Without Orphans.  It is particularly useful in presenting a clear picture of the numbers of orphans and vulnerable children in Ukraine.
