The Ukrainian Children's Christian Fund (UCCF) is a charitable organization registered and located in the greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. Founded by Michael & Olga Lapka (see picture left), the society was registered in 1976, and was previously known as PCF Missionary Fellowship. When Mike and Olga "retired" they re-focused their outreach specifically to the many orphaned and needy children and families in the Ukraine in the wake of the changing political climate. After Mike passed away in 2003, Olga continued the work for until her passing at age 93 in the spring of 2020.
UCCF continues to be administered out of Canada, under the direction of a dedicated Board of Volunteers. In the Ukraine, an equally dedicated group of volunteer Christian workers lead Sunday School classes, run Christian camps at Peaceful Haven Camp on the Azov Sea, provide Christian literature, and distribute basic humanitarian aid to families and older persons in need.
