Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the earth's inhabited land area. It is the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people. Worldwide, Russia ranks as one of the highest in suicides, alcoholism and abortions. More than 50 percent of Russian children are born into poverty, with more than 2.5 million homeless children and more than 800,000 orphans. The number of orphanages has increased by more than 100 percent in the last decade with at least 2,176 in existence today. Russia is also a leading source of child trafficking for purposes of forced labor and sexual exploitation.

Recognizing the plight of the youth of Russia, Young Life started a ministry in Moscow in 1992 and has expanded quickly. They focus on orphaned and homeless street kids and the more than 617,000 children of Russia with disabilities. With the Health Ministry reporting that a stunning 60 percent 

of the country's youth are in poor physical or psychological health, Young Life national staff and volunteers give tremendous support to these needy children. In contrast to this backup
of so much negativityand darkness in these young people's lives, Young Life Russia offers hope and life to adolescents through mentoring, scholarships and ministry.
