Our program promotes 100% volunteerism. We pay no salaries and we keep our administration costs at 5%. This means at minimum, 95% of your donation goes directly to helping the orphans. Donations of $20.00 and over are eligible for a tax receipt.

Whats Happening...


Greetings, With the Fast!
Hello everyone,
We want to let you know we are having a work bee on July 6th, Thursday, at St John’s Institute from 9:30-1:00 pm. We will be sorting, packaging and readying clothing, footwear, food and hygiene items, along with other requested products for fall school Startup.
If you can collect and deliver to SJI (or me) gently used clothing and footwear (children 6-16) we would be grateful. If you are available to help at the work bee, please let me know. We can use 6-8 people as the space is limited to work. If you are unable to contribute items or time, we graciously accept monetary donations to offset the cost of required purchases and shipping.
If you are unable to make the 6th, it is possible with the amount of items we must send this shipment, we may have a second work bee the following week. I’ll keep you posted.
We ask for prayers for the work we continue to do to support the orphans of both Zmiiv and Zaluchchia! And thank you for your continued support.
God bless,
In His Love & Service,
rhonda for SJC+

Greetings beloved supporters and friends of St John's Children Project! By your donations and prayers, we were able to ship 300 extra large bibs, sheets (27), bath robes, diapers and 75 large incontinence pads for the orphans of Zaluchchia Orphanage. They received them this week and the administrators and workers are extremely appreciative. Eighty of the135 orphans are completely bedridden which makes the incontinence pads a value to the staff caring for the invalids because it reduces the frequency of total bed remakes in a single day. Thank you to Jasmin of DriLine Baby who donated all the sheets, diapers and robes for the orphans. We are ever so grateful for all of our donors and supporters - Glory to God for all things! ...
