Charity Fund «Pilgrim»

Donation options


The Charity fund “Pilgrim” has been carrying out the largest rehab project in Ukraine for kids and adolescents who found themselves in tough life circumstances. These are the children of streets and most of them have either drug or toxic or alcohol or slot machine addiction. Some of them are HIV positive.  Some of them are orphans who have no parental care whatsoever and some of them are social orphans – they have parents but those can’t adequately raise them. Daily about 70 kids of the most difficult social category go through their rehab course in the center of children’s rehabilitation “Republic Pilgrim”.

Within the work of the center since February 2000 over 3000 teens went through the children’s center and over 60% of them got back to their families or state orphanages. Many of the kids were fostered. Some were adopted. In most cases the operative help of the workers of the Center literally saved lives of the minors who were in critical state.

 Beside the center of children’s rehabilitation several foster homes started working at the fund “Pilgrim” and in each of them the foster parents raise 6-13 kids. One of such foster homes is specialized in the kids with HIV+ status. It is the only family in Ukraine where 7 kids with this status live. It is planned to start one more foster home for such kids since the number of the children with HIV positive status steadily grows in Ukraine and they can live only in the centers for people with disabilities and for socially unclaimed citizens.

The vision for the nearest future is to develop the family forms of upbringing of orphans – to build the entire village where in foster homes there will be living adoptive parents with the kids. To support those foster homes we plan to found farms that would be able to provide for each family of 6-15 people. The cost of each house for adopted/ fostered kids is 15000 – 20000 Euros.

The initiator of the foundation of the Charity Fund “Pilgrim” is Gennadiy Mokhnenko – the senior pastor of The Churches of Good Changes in Mariupol, a founder of the rehab centers for adults, the adoptive father for 30 kids and teens, the overseer of the Priazovsky region of the Church of God Of Ukraine. The initiator of the action of social protest against the circulation of drugs “Sick of it”, a historian, a missionary, a Master of Theology, a journalist. The author of the books “ To execute not to show mercy”, “ Non pedagogical poem”, “ Back to holy Russia or to centuries of rot and mold?” He is also a host of TV programs “Two briefcases” and “ The other prospective”, an active blogger and a partaker of the united missionary project of Ukraine and the US in Africa.


The Charity fund “ Pilgrim” ahead with Gennadiy Mokhnenko in 2008 started alongside with the other pastors of Slavic churches and TV channel TBN a national action of adoption “ You will be found” the purpose of which is to call on the Christians in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and other  post soviet countries to adopt orphans. Within 4 years the bikers have overcome 15000 km on the route Mariupol – Kiev – Moscow – Yekaterinburg – Vladivostok.  The purpose of the project is to inspire people to take kids in their family, to destroy the myths about adoption and to create newsmakers about eradication of orphanship in the world.

New life has started for the Minister of Finances.
In the “Republic Pilgrim” it is a special day even though a bit sad one – the Graduation 2017. It is always time of special experiences and a very significant event for the graduates. Each one of them has a very rough story behind them, their life used to be destroyed; they used to have a mental trauma and a tough way of restoration.
