New Kostroma Ministry CenterOctober 3, 2011
A great and much-anticipated event took place on September 23rd – the opening of all programs in the new Kostroma Ministry Center. This building’s purchase was made possible by the generous donations of our numerous friends of Nadezhda Fund and Children HopeChest. We are eternally grateful!
Program participants prepared for this celebration for three weeks. They helped renovate the new building and the surrounding area. During our ceremony, one of the most active participants of the Ministry Center’s programs cut a red ribbon in front of the entrance. Everyone proceeded into a big room, festively decorated with balloons and other ornaments. Father Andrei (the Director of Kovaliovo Orphanage) addressed everyone, blessing future work to be done in the new building.
The Kostroma Ministry Center Staff wants to express their gratitude for making this event and celebration possible. The event was a great joy to us all. We assure you that every older orphan will always get help here and will always feel loved and cared for.

Valya G. – “Thank you so much. I am very happy we now have a new beautiful building, and most importantly – it’s our building. I come here every week to participate in different events. I like it a lot here. Thank you so much that Children’s Hopechest doesn’t forget about us and helps us all the time. Everything you do helps people like me. May the Lord bless you with His generous hand.”
