Funds from Giving Tuesday played a major role in helping our team meet the needs of families in Moldova last month.
THE CHERISHED GIFT OF COAL
This is made possible because of donors like you. Back in November on Giving Tuesday, we asked for support to keep these families warm, and you helped us exceed our goal. As a result, in December, Justice and Mercy Moldova was able to buy and deliver coal to 80 needy families from 31 different villages.
“We were so sad to see the terrible conditions the families live in, and at the same time, so blessed to be part of this amazing work of God,” said Cezara Moscalciuc, Crisis Response Director. “We have heard so many warm words and thanks for the enormous help and prayers from all the donors who shared a part of their souls.”
CHRISTMAS BOXES BRING JOY
In Chisinau last month, a family with three children came to us in need of food and hygiene supplies. We were able to help them quickly with everything they asked for and more. We also gave the children Christmas boxes with candy. It was a sweet moment when the little girls hugged our staff member, and the mother teared up with gratitude.
A SOURCE OF HOPE FOR THE SICK
Medicine continues to be an ongoing need for refugees struggling with things like diabetes, kidney dialysis and high blood pressure. Last month, we met this man (pictured), who cannot afford to buy his medication because he is using the little money he has to feed and clothe his three children. He approached several different organizations and governmental offices to try to get help, but Justice and Mercy Moldova was the only one that answered his call and quickly brought the medication to him. We were thankful to be able to help him as well as six other families with urgent medication.
Prayers for the future
Please continue to pray for the Ukrainian refugees and poor Moldovan families that we are serving:
- Pray for protection from the cold weather and that God will direct us to the families in desperate need.
- Keep praying for the refugees who are looking for jobs in Moldova.
- Pray for the refugee children who are studying online or going to school in Moldova.
- Pray for our staff to have continued wisdom and strength.
- Pray for the donors who are helping to care for the refugees.
