19 orphans coming this july!
Thank you for your willingness to help orphans from Ukraine come to America this summer! Your help is vital in assuring that all 19 children have a wonderful experience. For some of the kids, this summer will be the first time they have ever been around people who genuinely love and care for them. For many, it will be the first time, they have ever been to a beach, ridden a bicycle, sat at a dinner table or even had someone pray with them. You see, each of the kids coming this summer, has a hurtful past that has been riddled with trauma, loss of family, and the lack of care. They all currently live in state-managed orphanages where life can often be difficult. Our aim this summer is to turn every child’s darkened past and difficult present into an incredibly bright and hopeful future – WE NEED YOU TO HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Below are various ways that you can help. Please look at the list and register your help today! The children are arriving in early July and will be here until early August. Eleven of the children are staying with families scattered across the deep south and eight of the kids are staying at a large donated house in Mobile, Alabama. Your decision to help these orphans could be the greatest, most loving act of kindness that you will give this summer! Thank you for making an orphan’s dream come true.

Become a “Hope Giver”
Money needed now to cover orphans’ expenses!
Nineteen orphans are coming! Eleven are paid for. We still need to cover the expenses of eight of the kids who will be staying together in Mobile. We need people who are willing to invest in these orphans’ lives. We have to pay $2,500 per child (flights, visas, passports, documents, travel, insurances, etc.) plus their expenses while in the U.S. (medicine, activities, transportation, etc.). Please show these orphans that you care by giving today!
Bring a Meal
We have 8 teenage boys to feed for a month!
Help! 😊 You, your family, your small group, your church (or even your favorite restaurant) can prepare a meal and bring it to the house where the kids are staying. Mealtimes will be a huge deal for us this summer. Hurry, select a date, and get cooking.
Family 4A Day
Together your family loving orphans!
We need awesome families who will spend an entire day (or even a few days) loving the kids and hanging out with them. The plan is simple. On your designated day(s), you and your family simply show up early in the morning and be the kids’ family until it’s bedtime that evening. The ROH staff will have activities already planned and we will be there also. Many of the kids coming have never experienced a loving family. This is your opportunity to personally invest your heart and time into eight incredible orphans. All Family 4A Day participants must go through our training program and have a background check.
Adopt-A-Day for Churches & Groups
Your church can be directly involved!
Your church or group can take a mission trip to help orphans without leaving the United States! How? Because we are bringing the orphans to YOU! We all know the Bible states, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress . . .” (James 1:27). God is sending eight distressed orphans directly to the Gulf Coast and we are asking your church or group to help. For one day can your church or group provide these precious kids with the love and support that they need? Can the members of your church or group prepare meals, provide activities, be a friend, offer a prayer, cover some costs for the orphans? Is your church or group able to teach the orphans about Jesus and directly show them the love of God?
Get your entire company involved!
If your business cares about orphans and you want to do something very special which your employees will feel great about, then become a business sponsor. Your company can provide in-kind support, take up a collection, provide a special activity or help in a multitude of ways. If desired, we can even promote your company as an official sponsor of Roads of Hope. Register below and we will be back in touch to discuss how your company can do something spectacular!
Everyone can pray!
These children need prayer. They need to know the love of God and the love of a family. We have so many needs to meet. We believe the Lord honors the prayers of his people. We invite you to join our prayer ministry to stay informed of prayer needs for these children and our ministry.
