There are several projects currently in progress that ROR supports:
- An apartment in Ryazan, Russia supervised by a housemother which provides food and shelter for three teenage orphan girls. They are given training in basic life skills, such as cooking, housekeeping, personal hygiene and instruction in Christian living.
- A boy’s apartment in Ryazan, supervised by a house father.
- A house in Chernovtsy, Ukraine doing the same.
- The ministry of Oleg and Nina Petrov. They have a farm near Smoleyevka where they live and minister to children. They have a boy’s home and a girl’s home on the property and each summer, they provide food, lodging and spiritual growth to many orphans during the children’s summer holidays.
The above is a representation of projects in process. Other special needs will be addressed by the board of directors as they arise. Closing reports will be given as the projects become complete. All of these activities will directly further the corporation’s purpose of providing education and life skills programs for orphans in Russia and the former Soviet Union. Your contributions will improve their physical and social well being with the assurance that 100% of the money donated goes directly to the orphans.
