Hope Now has been working in Ukraine since 1992.
Our caring ministries provide healthcare for children and adults in need, as well as working in orphanages and with children taken to the Rescue Shelter by the authorities.
Summer camps for children and widows give many who are poor and lonely the opportunity to enjoy a week at Kompas Park, often with the help of volunteers from the UK and other parts of the world. Our foster parents take in children and care for them along with their own, giving them stability within a Christian family.
Hope Now supports a Mobile Medical Team, which travels to villages providing the medical aid that is so desperately needed, as well as providing local hospitals with equipment, linen, and gifts for children at Easter and Christmas.
Hope Now has Pre-Independence homes for young people learning to live an independent life following life in an orphanage. Our Child Care Officer oversees the young people in these homes, teaching them life skills and encouraging them to study the Bible.
Hope Now works with the elderly too, supporting sheltered accommodation for those in need, providing Christmas meals for the poor and running holiday camps – giving them a chance to have a break and to hear about the love of God.
In 2004, Hope Now established The Cherkassy Centre for Biblical Studies so that student pastors could be trained and equipped to lead smaller churches.
Church Planting and Evangelism is also something Hope Now is involved in; by helping smaller churches purchase or adapt buildings to meet in.
