This organization is more dedicated than any group as I have ever had the pleasure of working with.We watch such organization to see just how involved they are and Orphans Bright Star has shown a caring for the children that is unbelievable. You would think they are the real mothers of the children they seek to help. A solid and caring organization.

OBS funds projects that will last through many years of orphans. I helped (every dollar helps!) fund a playground for an orphanage. We were so proud to see the pictures of the children playing! I trust this organization, they spend funds wisely and you know exactly where your donation is going.

We know OBS from the beginning and this group of amazing, generous and beautiful people has allowed us to mantein the contact with the place where our son has coming from. So our family can continue to provide help for all the babies over there. The volunteers of this team are very dedicated to help with a great devotion and they are ready to find always new ways to involve people to help. I'm very happy to have found so great person!

We adopted our son from a Ukrainian orphanage in 2000. It was at the far reaches of the country and clearly forgotten. OBS has helped his orphanage a great deal and made the lives of the orphans much better.

For many years I watched as my wife volunteered with OBS and while I have a heart for the projects, I just didn't see the big deal. A few years ago we hosted an orphan in our home. When I saw the difference small things made to her, or how appreciative she was of the smallest thing, I realized these children really do know what it is like to be without. So readily they wrap their arms around you and call you mama and papa. And so willingly they go home knowing your house was the grandest they've ever seen. And this just as you thought it was time for bigger or better. I've seen my wife, cry, smile, laugh, and worry over the children in her programs. OBS has very dedicated people , with full focus on the needs of the children. our sponsored child just graduated and now, we go on to the next one. Everyone can do something.

Having adopted our son from a Ukrainian orphanage and experiencing the conditions and hardships that these innocent children face, it was a pleasure to discover An Orphan's Bright Star who tirelessly work to bring hope to these young adults, sponsoring vocational training to give them a big step up into the world of becoming self-sufficient. It's an honour to work with such a loving, caring organisation who only have the childrens future at heart.

Great organization run by honest people. I am so proud to have helped, donated and sponsored children through this program. These are real people helping real kids. You get pictures throughout the year and emails, sometimes letters if you sponsor an orphan. All around a FANTASTIC HONEST organization. Thank you OBS!!!

My cousin, Mindi, started this charity after adopting her daugher Yeva which required several visits to the orphanage. She fell in love with that little girl who was struggling to survive with little resources. Mindi, though could not help but noticed that her Yeva was not the only child in need and immediately began sending shipments of supplies that included vitamins, clothes, shoes and other items the children so needed. After bringing Yeva home and nursing her to health , tutoring/educating Yeva back to her age group expectations she felt the need to do something more for all the other children of the orphanage and sought donors to help them buy washers, dryers, food, playgrounds etc. She enlists the help of family, friends and looks for ways to gather funds for additional projects to enhance the lives of all the children in the orphanage. She has also gone back and adopted another young girl from the orphanage while at the same time not forgetting the rest of the children and continuing to adovate for them.
