River of Joy, Crimea is all about making a better future
for children AT RISK in the new generation:
River of Joy grew from our desire to make a more stable future for children who
have little chance of survival, the abandoned children, street children, institutionalized
children, and children in poor, partially deserted villages of Crimea. Having been
alarmed by a high suicide rate, a vulnerability to child traffickers and a shocking
number of children who die before they can grow up, we are endeavouring to put the
children into fine Christian homes where they can grow up normally and make a
future for themselves, for their villages, and for their country
in the great kingdom of God.

Our faith and
|Pure and undefiled religion
in the sight of our God and Father is this:
to visit orphans and widows in their distress,
and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
The greater (hearing and obeying God),
always includes the lesser (my needs being met).

Where did you get those nice parents?
Oh! You mean God gave them to you?
That is just like God isn't it?.
