I hope this email finds you well. As you are aware, we have been a lifeline of support to five orphanages in the Kherson region, including those still in Russian-occupied territory. Today, I am writing to inform you of a pressing request we received from one of these orphanages. I kindly ask for your support in responding to their needs. Here is the letter we received from the orphanage director:

To Our Friends at Abundance:

We are profoundly grateful for the continuous help and generous support that has been provided by Abundance International over this past year. Your ongoing assistance has brought immense comfort and hopes to the lives of the 88 children residing here who have not been evacuated due to the constraints of the Russian occupation. The significance of your kindness cannot be overstated, and we sincerely appreciate your unwavering dedication.

While our facility faces numerous challenges, we acknowledge that not all needs can be met until the end of the ongoing war. However, there are some critical requirements that we need your support with. The following items are of utmost importance for the well-being of the children:

  1. Food: Oatmeal, buckwheat, cottage cheese, cheese, butter, milk, chicken legs, oil, potatoes, carrots, onions, tea, cookies, flour, sugar, bread, and buttermilk. These food supplies are essential for the nourishment of our orphans. While the children express their desire for fish, candies, fruits, sour cream, cucumbers, and tomatoes, we understand the challenges in obtaining these products due to their increased cost and the hazardous situation in our region.
  2. Toiletries: We are running critically low on washing soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and dish soap. Our supplies have been depleted, but we have managed to adapt to the circumstances and continue without some of these items.
  3. Educational and Recreational Materials: We kindly request coloring papers and coloring pencils for the younger children, as well as A4 papers and pens for the older orphans. These items not only provide entertainment but also support their educational development.

We would like to express our profound gratitude to Abundance International for your unwavering dedication, kindness, and the incredible support your team has provided in the past, present, and future. Your contributions have made a tangible difference in the lives of these deserving children.


Once again, we extend our heartfelt appreciation for your continued support and commitment to making a difference in the lives of these vulnerable children. Together, we can bring hope, love, and a brighter future to those who need it most.
