As of January of this year, The Harbor in St. Petersburg welcomed new men and women to its Residential Program! 

The Harbor, a nonprofit ministry in Russia, aims to help transform the lives of orphans who have been emancipated in the country. One of the ways it does this is through its Residential Program, which brings in these children/young adults to live together and learn basic life skills.

Orphan World Relief has been supporting The Harbor for a number of years now. We are excited to see the residential program persevering throughout this pandemic. The Harbor asks for additional prayers for a few more women to join their program for 2021.  

 

A few months ago, we wrote about Grisha, one of The Harbor’s staff members, and his battle with cancer. We are so happy to share that he is doing better than anyone could imagine! His treatment is working and shrinking the cancer as well as stopping it from forming in other organs.

Grisha (pictured in the top right) continues to work for The Harbor full-time, leading the nonprofit’s athletic ministry as well as the boys’ residential program. He is a husband and father of two, devoted to his family and his work. The Harbor asks for continued prayers for Grisha as he continues his treatment.

We at Orphan World Relief support The Harbor and pray for God to provide a few more women residents to its program as we know all of the good that has come from this amazing organization.
