Ministry for kids with Autism

We have been given another opportunity for ministry. This last summer a volunteer came to us and asked for help in reaching out to children with Autism and their parents. We held a short weekend camp for them back in August. Since then we have been able to meet with these children and their parents several times. We plan to open our center to them as a place to meet and a place of refuge. In Ukraine, there is not a lot of support for children with special needs. They are often isolated and parents have no training or encouragement in this. Most often parents give up these children to the orphanage because of a lack of support and knowledge. We want to help them and to give them the resources they need so that the children do not end up in the orphanages. Pray with us as we develop this ministry.
