If you’re checking out our site for the first time because you were a recipient of our Christmas Cookie Fundraiser: welcome (and if not, you’re still welcome 😉)! We are a Maine-based ministry that has a passion for orphan outreach. We’ve spent over ten years traveling to Belarus (and on occasion other Eastern European countries) and our love for that corner of the world and the children we’ve encountered has only grown more with each year.

As of this post, we’ve just returned from a three week trip to Belarus in which we delivered over 4,000 Christmas presents to orphans and those in need. We couldn’t have done it without the prayers and support of the generous people in our extended community. In January we will begin preparing for our 2018 summer camp season in Belarus, and as the year progresses, we’ll continue to fund-raise and invite people to join us Belarus.

If you’d like to learn more, take a look around our website, or check us out on instagram: _handinhand or on Facebook: Hand in Hand/Pyka B Pyke. We also host three Russian Dinners a year for our local friends. These dinners are a fundraiser (donations only) and an opportunity to impart on our community the need that we’ve encountered in Belarus and beyond.

Thank you for stopping by!
