LifeNets is a non-profit organization that develops programs offering practical
assistance to promote the well being and self sufficiency of disadvantaged people
throughout the world and, where possible, encourages them to pass on their LifeNets
benefit. Rock Valley specifically supports LifeNets’ Orphans and Street
Children Program in Vinogradov, Ukraine. LifeNets provides funding for a soup
kitchen to feed about 40 street children and orphans in Vinogradov, Ukraine.
The children are either orphans or from negligent or otherwise dysfunctional

money for basic nutrition. They are cared for by Pastor Vasyl Polichko and his
wife, Irina, who have completely given themselves over to caring for these children.
