Dear brothers and sisters!
We invite you to join the charitable efforts to help the Orthodox orphanage and shelter for sick children, orphans and the elderly named after St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco the Wonderworker and located in the Ukrainian village Old Tarazh near the town of Pochaiv!
By the grace of God, the shelter was founded a few years ago by nun Olga. She started the shelter with two orphaned children that were living in appalling conditions in a state-owned children's home. Now mother Olga provides care for ten children and six elderly people. Shelter continues to expand and provides accomodations to the new lodgers from the war zone in eastern Ukraine.
Unfortunately, recently there was a fire in the shelter that completely destroyed part of the premises. Therefore it is very important to raise the necessary funds for the construction of a new house.
Anyone who is willing to participate in the charitable help and to donate money, clothes, vitamins, toys, diapers and other things to the shelter, please call tel. 949-698-3428 (Oleg).
God bless you for your generosity and compassion!
This is all what is left from one of the dwellings after the recent fire. The shelter is in the urgent need of help for construction of a new building.
