Mulberry International exists to partner with the children and families of Ukraine and Crimea through advocacy, education and action to promote growth and eternal transformation. We are a non-governmental organization that focuses on helping the abandoned and neglected children and families at-risk – helping to provide for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Our very first ministry outreach, Project Sasha, started in 1997 as a soup kitchen to feed the children and teenagers from the streets and be their friend and advocate. Missionaries held Bible studies for the children in Simferopol orphanages and half-way houses.
Through the years we continued to serve these abandoned, neglected and abused kids with basic needs and listen to their stories. Our workers helped them and guided them out of the vicious cycle turning their stories of tragedy, loneliness and desperation to stories of hope, love and the future.
Now Mulberry International supports Christian foster and adoptive homes, abandoned baby ministry, serves orphaned children in state orphanages and assists refugees and internally displaced people as a result of the armed conflict in the east of Ukraine. The need in Ukraine is so large and we hope you will catch our vision and join us in supporting the work of Mulberry International.
Since the armed conﬂict began in Eastern Ukraine about a year ago, the country is experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II! During this conﬂict, about 6,000 people have been killed, mostly civilian, and more than one million are displaced. About 1.7 million children have been affected by the ﬁghting, including more than a thousand seeking refuge in bare cold basements and bomb shelters as we write this.
Mulberry International is expanding its ministry to various parts of Ukraine to help refugees and internally displaced people (IDP) with basic needs (food, medicine, clothing) and to reach multi- generational families with the message of hope and God’s love. Natasha will be going on a vision trip in May to set partnerships with local churches and organizations to be hands and feet of Christ to the ones who lost homes, family members and hope. We also continue to minister to abandoned children in Crimea and support our foster and adoptive families now in two countries: Ukraine and Russia.
We ask for your prayers and support to enable us to give tangible help to more people left with no means of supporting themselves, shattered hope, gripping fear and battered souls. As we care for these families, we pray for them and share the Good News they’ve been so hungry to hear.
Join us now to make an eternal impact on these families!
Mulberry International ministers to abandoned and neglected children by supporting Christian foster and adoptive families as well as provides necessities and care in state orphanages and abandoned baby wards. We also assist refugees and internally displaced people resettling in the safe areas away from the fighting zone in Eastern Ukraine.
