Adopt-A-Family

Although communism collapsed in Eastern Europe 30 years ago, its effects can still be seen today. Families who had their land stolen by the communist government still struggle to rebuild their lives. As the cost of living continues to rise in spite of low incomes, families wonder how they will survive. For the poorest of families in Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine, the Adopt-A-Family program has been a ray of hope. This program focuses on helping Christian families, but some parcels are distributed to unbelievers as a means of outreach. Sponsors provide $75 a month to send parcels of food and healthcare items to large families without regular income. This program also reaches out to needy families in the Middle East.
