Welcoming Angels: Ukraine
This summer we are blessed to be hosting kids from Ukraine! Through Welcoming Angels, America World hopes to place older orphaned children ages 6 â€“ 16 years from Ukraine with loving Christian families for 3 weeks during the summer of 2014 (July-August). We are looking for adoption-minded families as well as those who are interested in advocating for orphans. Hosting is a great way to expand the communityâ€™s awareness of the needs of older orphaned children.
The cost for families is roughly $2,000. This cost includes an application fee, social work services, training for the host family, travel documents and airfare for the Ukrainian child. Host families may choose to fundraise part of the hosting cost. The hosting experience can be presented as a â€œreverse missionâ€ opportunity for the community. The Hosting Liaison for your area will be working within the local churches and community to provide fundraising opportunities and cost reduction strategies.
We would love to see you and your church as one of our hosting communities. Letâ€™s see how we can make this happen! If you are interested in hosting this summer, please email Rob Henneberg, Hosting Director, or call him at 703-891-9784.
