PURPOSE: Providing Hope and a Future for Orphans
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future…” Jeremiah 29:11
Children of War- Children of Hope (COW-COH) seeks to provide hope and a future to orphaned and homeless children living in war-torn areas by meeting with government officials in such countries to discuss domestic and international adoption policies.
Often orphaned and homeless children are the most vulnerable during and after conflicts but usually governments involved in war are overwhelmed with the task of providing the basic needs for these children and especially the greater need of a permanent family to provide a lifetime of care and love.
“A Father to the fatherless…is God in His Holy dwelling. God places the lonely in families.” Psalms 68:5-6
Prayers for Ukraine
In Jun 2022 COW-COH joined with Mercy Works (Youth With a Mission) in Warsaw, Poland to serve for 3-4 months as Team Coordinators for OPERATION Uplift Ukraine.br />

What Is Best!
“The child's most basic human rights require steps to guarantee the child's right to grow up in a family. And if the child cannot grow up in the birth family, then human rights principles require that the child be placed, as soon as possible, in an alternative permanent nurturing family, whether in the country of origin or abroad.
