Widow’s Story


“Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.”

Isaiah 1:17

Our volunteer teams are actively serving +500 widows in +25 villages throughout Ukraine and other countries.

We honor the widow by bringing your their story. As the body of Christ cares for the widow through visitation, food distribution and construction projects, we trust you will be greatly inspired by their resilience. Truly, our Savior is near the broken, and bringing hope to the hopeless in our generation, even in the most difficult circumstance.
