Summer Camps 2018

For kids, summer time is the BEST time of the year. They count down the days until their summer vacation starts and plan all the fun stuff they will do. BUT for many orphaned children and youth in Ukraine their summers are not so great. They face the same struggles… living in an institution, never having enough to eat, a lack of love and encouragement. Here at Master’s Foundation, we want to change that bleak reality for many orphans/children this summer.

Hearing the cry of the people of Ukraine

Masters has heard the cry of the people and risen to the occasion and is continually sending containers of aid to the Eastern Zone. Please click here to view two videos from our Humanitarian Aid section on how Masters' is meeting the needs of the people of Ukraine.

We have all returned from an eventful whirlwind trip to Eastern Ukraine. The trip was overwhelming in many ways. As you can see from some of the pictures we took, the senseless devastation of the war…so many villages shelled, hospitals, buildings, homes ruined, destroyed by the shelling and shrapnel, with roads still being mined. So many hurting people, so much poverty and lives needlessly taken. It was so encouraging to see the containers of soup provided by Shelley Stone of The Ontario Christian Gleaners meeting the needs of so many. Our sincere thanks to all those who faithfully prayed for us during this time. Also, the pastors retreat with pastors Gary & Jan Beesley and Gene Clarke was awesome, with so many being ministered too during the retreat. Please continue to lift up the country, leaders and people of Ukraine in prayer.


Retreat in Ukraine

Plans are finalized for our third Annual Pastor’s/wives/leadership Retreat in Zaozerne, Ukraine (Volyn Region) in October 4,5, and 6th. We are so honored to have Pastors Gary and Jan Beesley of Toronto and Pastor Gene Clarke of Hamilton as our guest speakers. They will also be ministering on Sunday in Lutsk and Ternopil Churches.

Masters' Foundation now registered in Ukraine

This summer Masters was officially registered in Ukraine as a charity. It was deemed necessary to do this to help with the shipping of aid and transfer of funds. A board of directors was also put in place with Stan Watrich as president, with Rev. Gene Clarke and Rev. Karen Milley as directors. Please pray for Master’s Ukraine board.

"Before the war, I never saw anything.  And now all of this is happening here, in my old age."

To meet the need, Masters is continually shipping containers of aid (soup/clothing) to the ATO Zone and outside. This spring 2 containers of soup and clothing were shipped, thanks to North Okanagan Valley Gleaners and another container will be Shipped in July, thanks to Ontario Christian Gleaners Cambridge. Please continue to pray for Ukraine!

Three Containers on their way to Ukraine!

Our thanks and appreciation to the North Okanagan Valley Gleaners for providing Masters with 2 - 40 ft containers of soup mix and clothing for Ukraine. Also a 40 ft container of clothing left to be distributed to the needy in the ATO Zone and outside. Social Services claims people outside the Zone are suffering as much, if not more than those in the war zone. Thanks to Yuri Strochynsky of Musket Transport Ltd. of Mississagua, ON for bringing the load to Comage Container Lines Inc.’s facility in Mississauga for shipping. Masters is grateful to our partners in helping meet the critical need for desperately needed food and clothing in Ukraine. Please continue to pray for Ukraine. The war has not let up and conditions are worsening and affecting the entire country.

We also want to ask anyone wishing to support the shipping costs of $36,000 for these 3 containers, please contact Masters or donate through CanadaHelps.

Much Needed Relief

The videos below are about soup distribution of the last container which was delivered at the beginning of this year. The joy expressed in the people receiving this soup is inexpressible! Their joy is because YOU heard their cry and gave to make it happen.We are so grateful and thankful to the Gleaners and with the help of our partners, in 2016 Masters was able to ship 7 containers, well over 12 million portions of dehydrated soup mix to Ukraine, as well as containers desperately needed clothing.

There are over 2 million refugees who have fled for their lives from the ATO Zone, but many who are unable to flee, have remained. It is to these people that Masters is reaching out to as well as seniors, invalids, soup kitchens, children and orphans. Accompanying this aid over 200,000 pieces of “Good News” literature was given explaining the love of God. For further reading please see the Winter 2017 Newsletter.

11 year old struggles to attend school in the war zone

This Ukrainian boy had to cross military checkpoints and enter separatist territory just to go to school. He no longer goes to school. The children of Ukraine are hurting the most. They don’t understand the lack of food, the bombings, or when an anguished mother tells her children, “Tato (father) will not be coming home anymore.”

The United Nations Children’s Fund estimates that 1.7 million children on both sides of the front line have been harmed through lack of proper shelter, nutrition, medicine or schooling.

Please watch this short video of 11 year Edik and his struggle to go to school in the war zone.and how he had to cross military checkpoints and enter separatist territory just to go to school.
