About Khor Village

The Sweet Hope annual truffle and caramel fundraiser is officially underway.  You have until November 23rd to place your order for our delicious handmade truffles and caramels.  If you’ve never tried them before I highly encourage you to give them a try.  We use the finest ingredients, package them in professional candy boxes, tie them with our signature blue bow and ship them to your doorstep or the doorstep of your loved one.

So why do we go all the trouble of this type of fundraiser?  We do it to further the mission of Sweet Hope.

Currently Sweet Hope works with the network of orphanages located in a tiny village in the Khabarovsk Territory of Russia.  If you are unfamiliar with Russia let’s have a geography lesson.

Here is Russia.  Note where Moscow is and where Khabarovsk is.

If we zoom in here is Khabarovsk and where Khor Village is.

Zoom in a little closer just to get an idea of the type of village we’re talking about.

As you can see it is a small rural village.  It is located about 70km south of Khabarovsk.  If you zoom in even closer you will notice most of the homes have what looks to be a large piece of land behind them.  It is a cultural practice for Russians to grow a large amount of their own food, especially in rural areas like these.

Given that Khor Village is located in such a remote area you can imagine the resources this facility has.  Indeed, it is very little.  This is why they need Sweet Hope’s help so badly.

Our goal for 2012/2013 is to purchase a new play structure for the main Khor Village Orphanage.  We will be working with the KSIL Corporation in selecting the appropriate structure for the children.  I will be visiting  Khabarovsk office of the KSIL Corporation on Monday, November 12 to discuss how Sweet Hope and KSIL can work together to provide play structures for the children.

To give you an idea of what is currently available for the children and what we would like to see here are a few illustrations for you.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to assist with funding of the structure please visit our donate page or donate via the widget to the right.  Even the smallest amount of money helps.
