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, a Madison, Wisconsin Radiologist made this Ukrainian outreach possible. Children exposed to the nuclear catastrophe at Chernobyl were the first to receive treatments.

Gift of Life provides help to the most needy, physically/mentally challenged, orphans, socially unprotected and indigent population of Ukraine. Services are provided free of charge. Opportunities for further assistance abound. Your financial support turns the opportunities into reality. Please keep Gift of Life in your prayers.

Shoe Box Gifts
It’s always so great to see the smiling faces and happy eyes of children who receive some presents. Thankfully to the coordinator of the national leadership team (NLT) "Samaritan's Purse" Sergei Kachan, our Gift of Life counseling centers managed to receive gifts for our crisis and needy clients and their children. For the first time Ukraine learned about "Samaritan's Purse" in 1995. Since then, more than 5 million Ukrainian children received the gifts from "Samaritan's Purse". This year the kids of our crisis clients also became the lucky ones to get the shoe box gifts. Our consultants already gave some gifts out which was a pleasant surprise and will give out more at Easter time (this year Ukraine celebrates Ester in May). Thank you very much to Sergei Kachan for this wonderful opportunity.
