They say experience is the best weapon. But Marina knows for sure, a dollar is the best weapon in the fight for the welfare of orphans. Only one dollar per month donated by caring people, every one of you.

Do not think that one dollar is inconsiderable donation. Better take a look at Ilya, an young ward of Marina. Small donations from helpful people returned to him an amputated leg and may soon return a hand. Now what do you think about the power of one dollar?

Marina Aksyonova is a founder and Director of the Children's charity Fund "Sun city". 10 years she regularly helps kids who are without parental care.
