About Pochaiv ...
Pochaiv is deeply affected by Ukraine's ongoing economic instability and lack of jobs. Most families survive on small subsistence farms. Many parents cannot provide for their children, and some children are abandoned, orphaned, or their parents are in jail. Desperate parents move away in search of solutions, leaving their children with other families. Substance abuse and domestic violence are prevalent.

It is the mission of the Chalice Sponsor Site of Pochaiv, Ukraine is to give direct help to those in need; to unite communities; to develop love of neighbour; to change people's vision for the future and to pray for its sponsors.

Update on Situation in Ukraine
Thank you for your concern for the people in Ukraine and in particular your sponsored friend.
Regarding the situation in Ukraine, our International Manager has been in constant contact with both of our sites in Ukraine. Fortunately, none of our children, Sites, or staff have been injured or directly affected at this time. Sponsorship activities and benefits continue as normal. Schools and Government offices have returned to normal working hours in the West where Chalice Sites are. Site Directors have travelled freely within their regions and all are ok. We will continue to monitor the situation on an ongoing basis.
Thank you so much for your concern and we invite you to join us in prayer for peace and resolution during these difficult times for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.
