Children's Hope
Home to 40 Children (ages 3-16)

Orphanage Coordinator(s):

This orphanage is home to 40 children rescued from the streets. For example, 6 siblings aged 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 were brought to the Center by their father, as they have no place to live. The mother left the family and nobody knows where she is now. All children need psychological rehabilitation.

How long does it take for the children to get my donation?
Once your donation is shipped from the mission in Portland, it should arrive at the
orphanage within 6-9 weeks.

Is this a tax deduction?
All donations sent to Life2Orphans through the mission in Portland, the
Nazarene Ministry of Help, are considered tax deductible. This includes the
postage paid to mail the package to Portland, as well as the cost to ship it on
to Ukraine. Life2Orphans will send you a receipt for the items sent and the cost
to ship the package from Portland to Ukraine. It is your responsibility to retain
your shipping records from your home to Portland for your tax records.

Can we send "almost-new" items?
Only new or very gently used items should be sent. Please do not send items
with rips, holes, missing buttons, broken zippers, stains or spots. Providing
quality items to the orphanages we support will ensure a longer usage cycle
for each item.

I've got my package all ready to go, how do I go about shipping it?
