primary purpose is sharing the love and truth of Jesus Christ with children
as well as adults. At the same time, we want to put Gods
love in action by providing critical humanitarian aid. We travel to Russia
to hand-deliver humanitarian aid and Christian books to children in the
places of greatest need - places such as orphanages, boarding schools,
hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and youth prisons. The aid opens the
doors for ministry, allowing us to be used by God to give everlasting hope
to the children by meeting them face-to-face and sharing the good news of
salvation through Jesus Christ.
We are especially concerned for the young
teenager who is in the transition period of leaving the orphanage to enter
into the real Russian world - often times, a world without hope for the
Russian orphan. These children are often considered outcasts in their
society, with little hope for further education or a secure job. Many
times children leave the orphanage as early as age 16.
There are over
one million orphan children in Russia.
to crime - Prostitution for girls; organized crime for boys.
60% end up jobless and
over 50% spend time in prison
10% take their own lives.
Please help us
reach these kids while we still can!
The above statistics come in
to reality in the life of an orphan child at the time when they must leave
the protection of the orphanage and face life in Russia alone, afraid, and
uncertain of their future. Orphan Cry was formed to help such children
- Please help us do so!
