Keeping Eastern Europe's families from freezing during winter

Across Eastern Europe, thousands of vulnerable people are struggling to survive the winter. Families living in poverty can't heat their homes or feed their children, older people are isolated and unable to access the basic essentials they need, and inadequate housing means children are vulnerable to sickness. Freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall put homeless people at risk of unimaginable pain and suffering, and can cost them their lives.

OWR 2The weather can turn bitterly cold as early as November in some Eastern European countries. The goal is to reach people in need and in socially-disadvantaged situations - the unemployed, pensioners, handicapped, those with a job but receiving a minimal wage, which doesn't cover their everyday expenses.

We also take time to share the Good News with the non-Christians, even as help is being distributed. This is a wonderful way to bring the Gospel to unbelievers and is a practical way of showing God's unconditional love to all people.

We provide urgent response to people at risk every day throughout winter, providing vitally needed food, essential clothing and emergency shelter. Your gift could provide a homeless person with life saving winter boots, a family with emergency shelter and an older person with company and a hot meal.


Here is what some of the beneficiaries shared:

"Thank you from all my heart for the shoes you gave to my child. His old ones were torn. We have no job and cannot buy bread, let alone shoes and clothes," - shared Tsanka.

"We don't know you but we thank you for the warm clothes, caps, scarves and gloves. By giving them to us, you helped us a lot as we don't have to spend money to buy these items. We cannot afford to buy them. What is more, they are so nice and warm!" - Karamfila said,

"Thank you, Mission Without Borders, for helping people in need! There is no employment in our village or there is very hard and dirty jobs for miserable payment. A lot of people are on the verge of despair. With your help, we could reach out to the non-Christians that live among us. That is a Christian witness in practice. May God bless you and return it to you a hundredfold."
