Rescued & Safe: The Children of Ukraine: Series Edition 2

Updated: Nov 29, 2021

US statesman and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, prominent in the 1860s, said something very profound about children. He said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” How true and yet how tragic that there are so many children in the world who carry brokenness into adulthood! As missionaries who desire to share hope in Christ with people in Ukraine and Belarus, we have seen this too many times. Missions, for us, is all about saving and healing lost and broken people.

In August, I shared how heartbreaking it has been to witness the hundreds of families in poverty that we have met over the past several years. We have met too many children suffering the reality of living with families where they experience privation, neglect, or even abuse. Too often we experience situations where children are not well cared for because of a lack of resources or negligence.
