If not enough people sign-up for your trip, we will inform you 30-days before the trip to see if you would like to join a different team or receive a refund.If you are currently a high school or middle school student you must travel with your parent or an adult legal guardian who serves as your caretaker. For minors, parent/guardian must sign-up for the high school or middle school student.
If you have additional questions, please contact Slavic Christian Ministries at 719-271-7375.
Slavic Christian Ministries Health & Safety plan provides the following:Medical kits: In each location we are always very close to locations that allow us to get immediate over-the-counter medications similar to Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc. We allow each adult to use their sole discretionary when purchasing medication. All parents or trip legal guardians will be notified prior to receiving any medical attention.Emergency response plan: Based on the severity of each emergency, Slavic Christian Ministries has a plan for each appropriate response.
- If a team member becomes seriously ill, they will be taken to a local doctor to receive appropriate medical attention and medications. If they are a minor, their Team Leader along with our staff will accompany them to the clinic. If needed, their parents will be contacted. Their recovery will be carefully monitored by our staff.
- If there is an accident that requires a doctor, but is not life threatening and does not have the potential to cause permanent damage, Slavic Christian Ministries staff will locate the Team Leader, contact parents or guardians (providing the injured is a minor) and provide safe but quick transportation to a local clinic.
- In the event that an accident occurs which is life threatening or has the potential for permanent damage, emergency medical care will be secured and arraignments will be made if necessary, to transport the injured person to the United States as quickly as possible providing they are serving in one of our International locations.
All medical care is the sole responsibility of the team member. Slavic Christian Ministries requires every team member to be covered by domestic medical insurance and recommends that team members traveling abroad carry additional international travel insurance to cover any medical needs their domestic medical insurance may not cover.
Ukraine has a population of about 44 million people. There are two million people who reside in the city of Kharkov (northeast Ukraine), and an additional two million people in the small towns and villages within the state of Kharkov.
Slavic Christian Ministries has a working and/or personal relationship with six orphanages within our state. These kids desperately need love and attention. During this trip you will visit a different orphanage every day to love, play, and minister to children of all ages. Many of these needy kids were just pulled out of abusive homes or off the hard streets of Kharkov. This trip has less ability to develop relationship with the children, but allows you to touch more lives. You also have a greater opportunity to see more of the countryside and minister to an orphanage made up solely of toddlers.
All of these kids have a very great need for the love of Jesus and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Teams coming to this location only need to show the love of Christ to these needy souls.
If you choose to join this team, we will provide you with a one-day orientation and preparation day before beginning the ministry with the kids. There are a variety of orphan ages, ranging from toddlers to mature teenagers. There are approximately 8 – 80 children in most orphanages.
