We change the lives of orphans and vulnerable children around the world by taking them from at risk to thriving.


Orphan’s Promise is a special ministry of the Christian Broadcasting Network that was founded by Terry Meeuwsen after adopting three sisters from the Ukraine.

We are currently working in over 60 countries, providing help and hope to orphans and vulnerable children around the world. Through partnerships with established local ministries, we provide food, shelter, Christian discipleship, education, life skills training, mentoring, medical help and micro-enterprise opportunities.



Orphan’s Promise is committed to promoting the wellbeing of orphans and vulnerable children around the world.

Taking children from at risk to thriving by providing:

  • Food & Shelter
  • Education
  • Life skills training
  • Mentoring
  • Medical help


Orphan’s Promise is at work in over 60 Countries. Sometimes the need is simple; bedding and supplies for an orphanage, computers for learning centers, or fresh water for a village.

Sometimes the needs are bigger; an orphanage building, a program to help transition sex slaves into a safe place, a complete training center for children who have aged out of their orphanage. Sometimes the programs are a one-time effort, sometimes the effort is an ongoing one.

We depend on the Lord’s leading and the oversight and wisdom of our team who are very familiar with working in Developing Nations to guide us.


Myroslava’s New Home – Global Impact

A new home for Myroslava. Orphan’s Promise Ukraine

Before she became a widow at age 22, Myroslava lived in the Ukraine with her husband and three children in a drafty house with peeling paint and a leaky roof. Then CBN’s Orphan’s Promise stepped in.

“Before he died, my husband was a kind man,” Myroslava told us. “He loved the children and helped me. Then my world fell apart.”

Myroslava was forced to sell everything they owned to pay for his funeral.

“We had nothing,” she said with tear filled eyes. “I had no stove, no furniture. The house was empty, the walls are raw. And we were starving.”

Desperate, Myroslava sent her two older kids to live with their grandma. Myroslava kept the baby with her since he was nursing at the time and there was no extra room at her in-laws. Myroslava’s 6-year-old daughter Snezhana told us how sad she was.

“I love my mom very much,” she said. “I wanted to stay with her but she didn’t even have a bed.”

Orphan's Promise Ukraine builds Myroslava a new house.

That’s when CBN’s Orphan’s Promise Ukraine began to work with the family. First we provided construction materials and then hired a crew to build a new house for Myroslava and her children.

“We have everything! We can live with our mama now. She loves us!”

“When my children saw what a beautiful house you were building for us they could hardly wait for us to move in!” exclaimed Myroslava.

We also gave them some beds, a stove and other furniture.

“The men built us a beautiful new house!” added Snezhana. “It’s warm in here, and I like it very much.”

“We have everything!” chimed in Nastya, 5. “We can live with our mama now. She loves us!”

Recently Myroslava prayed to become a Christian.

“I’m so happy that my children have all they need. I’m full of joy and so grateful to you, thank you so much!” she said.

Reunited with family

This is the beautiful Lucas Mubarak. 

His mother was dwarf, living on the streets in Ethiopia.  One day she reported to a local health centre stating she did not feel well. They found out she was pregnant and referred her to the hospital where a day later she delivered a little boy by caesarean section. The mother, not knowing what to do called in the help of Abrahams Oasis, a project supported by Orphans Promise. Initial efforts to bond mother and baby were unsuccessful.  

So little baby Lucas came to the project and from time to time family would visit and check up on him. Because we strongly believe that family is best environment for a child to grow up in,  the intensive investigative process was started whereby the right family was identified and the little boy was reunited  and found a new home.  Little Lucas is now known as Mubarak, the name that his uncle who has given him a home chose for him. This beautiful boy is saved from a lonely hard life on the streets and can now grow up in a loving family as a happy young boy.

Orphan’s Promise Event Funds Ukraine Children’s Camp

Last month, CBN Europe partnered with artist Rudolf Harris for a fund raising event in London with the aim of supporting children in an Orphans Promise Orphanage in the Ukraine. Rudolf is a South African artist based in the UK who visited the orphanage with his wife Jenny. During this visit he felt prompted to raise funds for the children to attend a summer camp. All of his pictures were displayed in an art exhibition in London where visitors placed bids on his paintings.  Along with generous donations from CBN partners they raised over £2,500.

This money has been already been put to good use and as you will see from the opening picture, the teenagers are already having a lot of fun on their summer camp. In the bible, Jesus said -“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”. Orphan’s Promise is committed to promoting the well-being of orphans and vulnerable children around the world by providing food, shelter, medical help, academic opportunity, life training skills, mentoring, career placement, and health programmes.
