Our history Our history
Gift of Life began as Medical Clinic on Wheels (MCOW) in 1992. Support from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod mission society, Thoughts of Faith Inc., together with the late Dr. Stephen Dudiak made this Ukrainian outreach possible. Children exposed to the nuclear catastrophe at Chernobyl were the first to receive treatments. Since those days 150,000 Ukrainian children and adults have benefited from MCOW.
Material Aid Material Aid
Baby and maternity clothing are given to pregnant women to help them and to show them Christian care. Gift of Life (GoL) also assists these women by supplying them with prenatal vitamins.
Material Aid Material Aid
Donations of new/used clothing, footwear and hygiene products are gathered and shipped from the United States to Ukraine by Thoughts of Faith. Gift of Life distributes the aid to needy people in Ukraine through the Lutheran Church congregations, counseling centers and other reliable institutions.
God God
The Christian Lutheran connection is evident to clients who visit the clinics, counseling centers and to those who receive material aid. They have an opportunity to hear God's word. Many women have their babies baptized into the family of believers. Gift of Life provides opportunities to the Ukrainian Lutheran Church to proclaim God's love found in Jesus Christ.

Summer on Wheels 2016


Warm season of the year is always a busy one for the Medical Clinic on Wheels. The medical and dental personnel not only examine patients but travel from site to site every time carefully packing and unpacking equipment, cleaning the buses inside and out, setting up materials and other. Most of the staff has families and children although the major part of the year they take care of many families and children from different regions of Ukraine. From the beginning of April through the end of July 2016 the Medical Clinic on Wheels has been to 8 different places. In each place hundreds of needy patients were provided medical and dental services as well as healthcare teaching, treated with the special attitude and little useful gifts and what is more important – all received the Good News.

Now it is the time for a well-deserved vacation. The entire organization closes for the month of August and will start fresh in September when all the kids are back from their holidays.
