On the coast of the Black Sea just south of Sochi, Russia sits the small independent state of Abkhazia.

Few countries recognize its independence and few people know of its existence, yet the spiritual and physical needs in Abkhazia are great. Through a partnership with churches in Sochi, SOAR became aware that this tiny region of 450,000 includes only about 300 Christians and a few small churches struggling to survive. The head pastor over the Sochi churches also oversees the churches in Abkhazia and has asked for SOAR's help as they seek to assist the churches in Abkhazia.

SOAR also assists the Evangelical church in Abkhazia with camps for handicapped children and young adults. They minister to children, young adults, their families and caretakers through physical therapy, rest and fellowship, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord for this fantastic ministry!


SOAR has been asked again this year to assist in sharing God’s love with a group of orphans and their caretakers from the heart of war-torn Ukraine. These precious children ages 5-14 years old will be spending 2 weeks in Abkhazia.

SOAR is partnering with the Abkhazia churches to provide a Bible camp to share the Gospel message and God’s love with them. These kids were orphaned during the war in Ukraine. Some lost their parents, some have been indefinitely separated from parents by the war, some of these kids were injured by the war and all of them have suffered very traumatic events. Please pray for these kids and that God will work in their hearts as we share His love with them this summer.

SOAR has the privilege to help provide food for the orphans and caretakers from Ukraine. The cost is $200 per day for the group. Total cost for 15 days is $3000. Please pray that this group will feel God’s love and care as they spend this time in Abkhazia!
