Ukraine has a population of about 44 million people. There are two million people who reside in the city of Kharkov (northeast Ukraine), which is the second largest city in Ukraine. Saltavka is a suburb of Kharkov.

Saltavka orphanage is one or the more open orphanages within the city. We have been working with this orphanage for many years. It is a government run, but other teams have been able to minister here in the past. This orphanage is where very needy kids come that were just pulled out of abusive homes or off the hard streets of Kharkov. These kids have a very great need for the love of Jesus and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Teams coming to this location will need to be more covert in their presentation of the gospel, but a huge opportunity for salvation. These kids will be very open to your investment in their lives.

The task of your team is to invest in these kids through a Vacation Bible School, play games, enjoy crafts, engage in sports activities, and just love on them. If you choose to join this team, we will help prepare you in advance for your VBS, and 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 60-80 children within this orphanage.
