Children Ministry

Our Mission is to eternally impact the lives of orphaned children, for the Kingdom of God, through raising awareness of their struggle and our Biblical responsibility to care for them.

Our desire is to glorify God by joining forces with Christians from different denominations to do anything and everything that He enables us to do, in order to provide for the needs of HIS orphans.

We have 4 orphanages that we visit monthly. Weekly our team of volunteers that have committed their time and wisdom to serve the children. Yearly we organize a week camp for the orphan children, it has been such a blessing to both the volunteers and the children.

This year 2016 we have committed to visit infant orphanage weekly and also, an orphanage/boarding school for children with disability.

James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Dental Ministry

The mission of the Open Door Foundation Dental Ministry is to help provide dental care to the orphans of Ukraine.

Dr. Marvin Nelson DDS has been serving Ukraine for 6 years now with dentistry.
We also have been blessed to have Marta Card a Registered Dental Hygienist come with Dr. Marvin Nelson DDS and provide dental care for the orphans, missionaries and people in need.

We are also looking in increasing the ministry at minimum three times a year, with different dentist, so it will not be a heavy load for just one dentist and a dental hygienist. We are praying and looking for more dentists.

We would like to have a team come and serve the children, by educating the children about good dental hygiene; while the dentist works on the patients. We are looking for costumes a tooth and a toothbrush.


Summer Camp

Yearly we help out a church to organize a children camp. Each year around 150 children attend the camp. We have an English team from USA or England come and serve the children with teaching them English. It is a great opportunity for children to learn English and get to know God on a personal level.
The church has a program called “Compass Club”weekly the children attend “JUMP (kids) and “Switch ON” (teens). The kids learn about different topics and where they can feel safe.

As most of you know Ukraine is going through some difficult times at this point and as Open Door Foundation Ukraine we’ve partnering with other organizations and churches to help the refugees and other needs at this point.

Medical Ministry (Global Health Outreach)

We partner with Global Health Outreach and the local church in a village and provide medical care and support to help grow existing church or plant a new church.
What is GHO: The goal of Global Health Outreach short-term medical, surgical, and dental trips is to come alongside national partners who are making disciples, planting churches, and evangelizing in their particular areas. We seek to use our medical skills to offer hope and compassion to the least, the lost, and the last who often have no access to any health services in their country. Their poverty, social class, or geography may require them to suffer in silence, and often die prematurely from medical conditions that may be treatable.
