Visiting Refugee Children

Many refugee children are living in sanatoriums along the sea in the Odessa region. Some of these children are here without their parents and others are with their parents. Refugees continue to come to Odessa in search of jobs, homes, and a place to restart life. Many are leaving their children in these facilities until they can get resettled.

Samaritan's Purse recently passed onto us hundreds of gifts that were specifically set aside for refugee children. Nasledie was asked to help distribute these gifts. We decided that we had a program already prepared and that we would visit the children. We took two trips to Sergeevika and Chornamorka.We held a fun program for the kids and passed along the gifts to hundreds of kids.

Please pray for these children. It is difficult for them to be living without their parents. Pray that their parents can get settled and take their children with them. Please pray that these children would not become orphans because of the crisis in our country.
