On Why Ukraine Mission 3 is Important

Posted by worldorphanrelief on November 2, 2015

The following articles clearly exemplifies the absolute need for our presence in Ukraine. We must educate children…and adults…on the dangers of unexploded ordinance (UXOs). This knowledge will not only save lives in the immediate future, but also for decades to come. Did you know that farmers in France and Belgium die every year to bombs left over from WWI? That was 100 years ago. Please read so that you have a better understanding of why our mission is so incredibly vital.

Update Ukraine Mission 3

Posted by worldorphanrelief on November 2, 2015

Due to unforeseen complications we had to move our departure date from October 26 to December 12.  We have resubmitted our request for tickets and expect to have a solid departure date within a week.  Our schedule is dependent upon available seats so it is not certain the actual date of departure but it will be near our requested date.

I am happy to announce that Ava Cartner and Jennifer Sanders will be joining mission 3 while my brother, Frankie Jay Bull, will be delivering the supplies collected by The a Fishermen for delivery to the Standing Rock Reservation. Unfortunately, Angela Lipari will not be able to travel with us but we are already preparing for mission 4 and she will join us then.
