Sowing the SEED of hope in Chomoni
Through our SEED (Something to Eat Every Day) initiative, we are not only providing solutions to the immediate need but giving the opportunity for the community, in this case, a Roma camp in the West of Ukraine, to grow a sustainable source of income for the future.
From truck to transformation
Chomoni – a village in Ukraine with a significant need particularly among the Roma community – has experienced the positive impact of the SEED initiative.
Korchi, the SEED coordinator for Ukraine, says: “God is always thinking about us, and never forgets us and never forgets the poor people and also those who are in need.”
Recently, through the support of Orphan’s Promise partners, a truck arrived in Chomoni, carrying 2 tonnes of potatoes for immediate consumption and an additional 10 tonnes for planting in the fields, preparing for the upcoming winter season.
This gesture holds immense significance, especially considering the obstacles the Roma people face due to difficult transportation routes consisting mainly of mud tracks.

The heart of CBN’s Orphan’s Promise is to take people from at-risk to thriving by equipping the community with the resources and knowledge needed to grow and harvest crops that can be sold or used to generate income. This approach not only addresses immediate needs but also fosters self-sufficiency and community dignity.
