Statistics regarding orphans in Ukraine

  • After the age of 5, a Ukraine orphan only has a 20% chance to be adopted.
  • As they pass through the system, nutrition and living conditions deteriorate.
  • Orphans "graduate" from the system at the age of 16.
  • They will be homeless, alone and lacking the education necessary to provide for themselves.
  • 10% will have committed suicide by their 18th birthday.
  • 60% of the girls will end up in prostitution.
  • 70% of the boys will enter a life of crime.
  • Only 20% will find work.

Our Mission

Advocate for Orphans International seeks to express God's care toward Ukraine orphans by coordinating two to three week "American Culture Camps" for under-privileged Ukrainian children. Most of the children are able to be adopted and many will meet families who will want to share their love and lives as permanent members. Our program will provide the beginning of that adventure!
