First Love International in Ukraine

Children’s Hope Ukraine

Children’s Hope Ukraine partners with Christian families of Ukraine to reach abandoned children and provide Christ-centered homes.  They focus on developing lifelong relationships, teaching and encouraging children to reach their full potential and preparing them for life on their own.  First Love currently operates Safe Haven and Father’s House for these special children.

All of our children come from neglectful or abusive backgrounds. They have been wounded and abandoned by the very people who should have loved them the most. They come to us hurting and confused. There is no quick fix for these kids. Building trust and breaking down the walls they’ve built around their hearts takes years. It is never easy and often painful, but we thank God that He is faithful. He has always loved our kids and has always been with them. Jesus is bringing healing to their hearts and is at work in their lives day after day and year after year. We rejoice that many have come to know Him as their Savior, and we continue to fight and pray that all of them would make that decision. We believe that God is raising up a generation of Ukrainian orphans who will love and follow after Christ, who will break free from the chains of their parents’ and grandparents’ pasts, and who will teach their own children to love and keep His commandments.
