Seeing the struggles the family were facing, Mission Without Borders started supporting them with food and hygiene parcels, regular visits and warm clothing for winter. But the biggest surprise was when Serghei, the MWB coordinator visited Tudor with a backpack full of materials
At the Mission we believe that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty in a family. Children are our future and we want to see them flourish and grow, together with the community they live in. This is why the partnerships MWB have with local churches and volunteers are so precious.
As Serghei says, 'When I first met Tudor he was a small withdrawn child, so serious almost all the time. He is one of the many children from our area who needs to be shown love and care – he is precious in God's eyes – and we want him to know how special and important he is."
MWB's educational support is inseparable from our spiritual support as we seek to reveal God as our Provider and heavenly Father to the children we work with. We have seen that education along with a deepening knowledge of God and his Word can create real and lasting change in a child's life.
In 2021 Mission Without Borders plans to distribute 7,400 backpacks full of school supplies to children in Eastern Europe as part of our Back to School programme. We can only do this through your help. Your gift can open the door to new opportunities, hopes and dreams for children like Tudor.
A kind gift of £28 could provide a backpack and school materials for a child to ensure they don't drop out of school. A gift of £50 could cover the cost of meals for children when they attend one of our After School centres. And a very special gift of £70 could help cover some of the teaching resources and learnng materials used by children.
