While on my journey to self discovery, I have never forgot about helping orphans from the country that was once my home. After all, my own fate would have been the same as that of the 60 to 70 percent of Ukrainian orphans who end up in crime (or worse) if I hadn't been spared and adopted to America. It is something I cannot bear to imagine; my heart truly aches for all those who are still there.
That's why I have chosen to give 10% of my monthly book sales to charitable organizations throughout Ukraine. Once a year, I will choose a trustworthy organization to support by pledging for a full year. I feel that there are many orphan children in Ukraine, and in the world, and every one of them is important and needs our help.
This coming year, I have chosen to work with Hope Now Ministries. (https://hopenowusa.org
) a nonprofit Christian organization that raises money for orphaned children in Cherkasy, Central Ukraine.
Hope Now Ministries is working to fund and expand a scholarship-based "Orphan Graduate Program" that offers the post-orphanage grad an opportunity to complete their secondary education, attend college or get a job, and to learn the life skills necessary to find success after they leave the orphanage.
Cyndee Knight Has been working in Ukraine for many years, and is doing remarkable work to help these children. We can't do this work without your helping hand!
