Reviews for Orphans Tree Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I first traveled to Russia in 2008. Since then I have made a total of 7 trips, 6 of them under the banner of Orphan's Tree. Working with Orphan's Tree is one of the greatest joys of my life. The heart of this organization is pouring into the amazing people of Russia and supporting them emotionally, physically and spiritually. I have great confidence in Orphan's Tree and our ability to collectively as volunteers, staff and nationals provide hope, joy, peace and laughter to the lives of our brothers and sisters in Russia.

Orphan’s Tree is led and staffed by people who have a genuine heart of love and compassion for the older orphans in Russia. I have observed them creatively serving and diligently praying over this often-overlooked population. I had an opportunity to travel to Russia this year with Orphan’s Tree and saw first-hand the impact of this ministry. I was touched by the number of young people who have found - through Orphan’s Tree - a place of belonging and an oasis of hope in otherwise bleak circumstances. Our family gladly gives to Orphan’s Tree because we know now the desperate need in Russia and we implicitly trust Orphan’s Tree’s leadership to use our donations to make a difference.

Orphan's Tree ministers to orphan children and young adults in Russia in many creative and innovative ways. They care about and minister to the whole person - spiritual, emotional, physical, social, and mental. They minister to children in orphanages, but they also follow through and help them integrate into Russian society when they become teenagers and must leave the shelter of the orphanage. Orphan's Tree also enables churches to get involved, and some very significant life-change occurs within the hearts of team members when they come face to face with orphans in Russia. Team members usually return home sensing that they have received far more than they ever gave. Orphan's Tree also provides opportunities for Russians to get involved in the ministry, and these Russian young adults frequently find their hearts being changed as well. Orphan's Tree is a wonderful ministry, and it is making a difference in many lives!

This organization has been actively connecting with young Russians in its orphanage system for decades, long before I got involved. The people involved understand the culture, the government, and the lack of hope without their involvement. They have made a significant difference in the lives of the people they have met.

Orphan's Tree is run with a heart, passion and authenticity! Those who work and lead Orphan's Tree seek out ways to understand the culture and the children they are serving. The Lord is very present in the ministry and in the leadership. I appreciate and truly love the people at Orphan's Tree.. they are doing God's work from a place of love and service and genuine passion.

One of the key reasons we chose Russia when adopting our two kids was that we'd heard some scary stats. We were told that kids were put out of orphanages at 15 or 16 years old. After that, nearly 90% ended up in crime or prostitution or committing suicide. They don't know how else to survive. When I learned about Orphan's Tree, I was so encouraged! Someone is showing Christ's love and compassion to these young people. Someone is showing them a better way to survive and thrive in a difficult circumstance. Someone is telling kids who've spent most of their lives feeling unloved that they have a father who loves them! We consider it an honor to be able to support such a wonderful, committed organization.

There are so many charities out there, it is a challenge to find the right one. The people involved in Orphan's Tree are passionate, committed, authentic, and trustworthy. I have a huge amount of respect for the commitment they show and the enormous impact they have where there is great need and minimal resources. I feel confident in recommending them to anyone that your giving goes to those in sore need and will have significant impact on lives.

We knew nothing about Russia or its "aged-out-of-orphanages" orphan population until we came to know the founders of this charitable organization. We've had the privilege to get to know these family members and employees over the past decade and can most highly vouch for their personal and professional integrity, work ethic, moral fiber, wisdom, Christian foundation, and commitment to many good and worthy causes, especially this orphan population in Russia. Through this organization and their deep personal ties, we've been personally affected and touched enough to become regular donors.

We have every confidence that our donations are being used wisely, judiciously, effectively and efficiently. But much more importantly, we believe our contributions are being multiplied exponentially to benefit an otherwise forgotten population of the world. We've heard incredible stories about the life-changing impact this organization has had on a significant number of individuals in Russia. The benefit to the kingdom of God is priceless. We are enthusiastic and grateful supporters of Orphan's Tree and the great work they are accomplishing.
