Children of Victory

March 4, 2024 / The selection of children or families who qualify for this assistance is based on the parent being severely injured and unable to support his family, is missing or has died while serving in the war. Upon arrival they are made to feel special as they “shop” for their own winter coat, hat, and mitts. The guardian or mother is offered a time of fellowship, prayer and encouragement. We wish to express our deepest appreciation to all those who contributed specifically to the Children of Victory Project.

Children of Victory

January 11, 2024
This past fall we launched a project called “Children of Victory”. Its goal is to address the challenging needs of families in Ukraine who are finding it very difficult to support their families because they have lost a parent in the war or have a severely injured loved one who is unable to provide for them. 

This family of four children ranging in ages from 6 to 16 came to our center today and were outfitted with winter clothing. Their mother died, the father was killed serving at the front and they are being brought up by their grandmother. Our contact tells us that it was difficult to listen to their story and watch their interaction.  “For the sake of the grandmother and the Children, I tried to not show my emotions.  Thank you for your part in being able to touch the fate of these children!”

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Christmas greetings to our Master’s Foundation supporters and family.

At this special time of the year, as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, we want to thank you for standing with us in 2023.

The people whom we serve in Ukraine are so very grateful to the faithful Master’s Foundation community that has supported them throughout the year. 

The leadership team and the Board of Directors of The Master’s Foundation wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas season and a blessed New Year!

National day of fasting and prayer for victory and peace in Ukraine

On August 24, 2023, Ukraine will celebrate 32 years of Independence. For almost ten years, that is, almost a third of this time, the country has been at war with the aggressor, Russia, which refuses to recognize Ukraine's sovereignty and right to exist. The importance of strategic actions of Ukrainians at this time is difficult to overestimate. And one of these actions is unity in prayer, Spirit and truth. Vitaly Orlov, coordinator of the Prayer Movement, encourages Christians to unite on the National Day of Fasting and Prayer for Victory and Peace in Ukraine, August 24: LEARN MORE

Catastrophic floods in the Kherson Oblast after the collapse of the Kakhovka Dam 

The destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Stations has created an ecological disaster with immense consequences. Our pastors/contacts are readying to accept evacuees, supply pumps, generators, quilts, and drinking water. They are already planning ahead for the fall/winter season as thousands of homes have been affected. We are asking for your prayer and financial support to help us help them bring aid to those affected.
