Russia Orphanage Trip 2017
Every year for the past 17 years we have been committed to visiting orphans in the Kostroma region of Russia. Our presence in their lives is a tangible reminder that they are not forgotten nor abandoned by their heavenly Father.
Each traveler is responsible to book their own flight to match the itinerary of the rest of the team. We will fly non-stop from LAX to SVO airport on Aeroflot airlines. The exact itinerary will be provided to you once your application is approved and deposit is made. If you want to fly on another airline, your arrival and departure flights must be within a couple hours of the team.
Final ground fees may not be known until July. Ground fees cover all your ground travel, meals, hotels, translator's fees, visa processing fees, and any special activities with the kids. For a rough idea, last year's ground fees were $1700 for 11 days of travel.
