Girl Helps Kids in her Russian Orphanage

For most kids on their birthday, the focus is all on cake, ice cream and the presents- the more the better- but not for Grace Vaala. For her 9th birthday, she requested that her friends and family give to the children who still live in the orphanage in which she started life. Even though she was adopted back in 2002, she hasn’t forgotten the children in the Novokuznetsk Baby Home #1.
The total donations raised by Grace’s 9th birthday for the baby home back in Russia, paid for much needed improvements in some bathrooms. Most importantly, a regulating water heater was installed. Prior to this addition, the children were at risk of getting burned by the hot water coming from the taps. Also new faucets and a shower system were purchased and installed.

Good job Grace!
You’re already making a difference and you’re not even 10 yet.

You can help out in Russia too

Paparao Personally Thanks School Children for Donations

Paparao Yeluchuri speaking to students in a Sacred Heart classroom

A special visitor was walking the halls of the Academy of Sacred Heart late Wednesday afternoon. Mission to the Nations’, Paparao Yeluchuri was paying a visit to say thank you. He is thankful that through Children’s Hope International, his ministry to the poor in Kakinada, India has been a recipient of the Sacred Heart School’s mission project for years.
Paparao and Sister Maureen Glavis share a laugh

Over the past nine years, the combined donations, from this St. Charles, Missouri school, have purchased 10 sewing machines for young struggling Indian mothers and drilled fresh water wells for 15 Indian villages. The wells are daily delivering safe water to over 12,000 people.


Yeluchuri was able to personally speak to several classrooms and to also thank the students of the missions committee. He expressed his joy in being able to visit a loyal supporter during his one day trip to the St. Louis area. Yeluchuri says his organization’s calling is to be the Gospel in Action. He is so thankful for partners like Academy of Sacred Heart who have the same goal.


You too can help Paparo reach out to the poor in India

Heat at Last for Chinese CP Clinic

Children's Hope staff with Mrs. Ma (center) on the day heater units arrived.
Mrs. Ma and her daughter
The cold of winter and the heat of summer will no longer add to the discomfort of therapy for children at a private cerebral palsy clinic in Henan province, China. Donors provided 12 heater/air-conditioning units to heat and cool the 18 rooms of Mrs. Ma’s CP therapy clinic. The clinic treats dozens of children with CP and trains their families in therapy techniques to use at home. But because of a lack of funds, the clinic’s therapy rooms had no temperature control, so the children shivered in the winter and roasted in the summer.

Mrs. Ma opened this clinic in Qinyang to help poor families like hers, when she couldn't find therapy options for her daughter who has CP. It costs Mrs. Ma over $100 per month to give therapy and boarding to one child. She has 20 children now staying at her clinic.




You can give a Chinese child with CP the therapy that is needed.Give to Mrs. Ma’s CP Therapy Clinic
Since the heaters are now purchased, please consider helping with a child’s therapy or a monthly donation.

Safe Water to Drink in Ethiopia's Korah Community

We’re close to drilling the well for the Korah community in Ethiopia!
We’re so thankful for the wonderful donations that have come in after the March direct mail campaign. The donations to date put us only $7000 from our goal of drilling our first well.
Korah is the community of tightly packed shanties that surround the Bright Hope School.The residents are fighting daily to survive with their disabilities associated with leprosy and AIDS. The rocky geology requires an expensive deep well in order to give them safe water to drink.


If you would like to help dig this community well in Ethiopia, you can still send your donation in the mailing remittance card or Give to drill the Korah well right now.
