Winters are cold and can be quite brutal for families in rural areas of Eastern Europe, as well as those that are living on the streets in the cities.
With little to no social safety net like we have here in Canada to rely on, many families and isolated elderly are referred to Mission Without Borders' Street Mercy and Family programs for immediate and urgent support during the winter months.
Mission Without Borders' Operation Winter Rescue program offers emergency food support to soup kitchens as well as firewood and heating oil support for families that struggle to keep the lights on, let alone keep the house warm.
We visit families in the program once a month and provide essentials like blankets, coats, boots, and gloves along with much needed hygiene and food supplies.
Help us reach those that are hurting, alone and scared in Eastern Europe this winter by donating to our Operation Winter Rescue program today.
We use GoFundMe Charity to help reach more people as well as keep our costs down. You can help by sharing our campaign with your friends, but only if you think it will be something they would appreciate being able to help with.
Than you for considering and caring for those at a distance.
