Ukraine(Mission Network News)– During a recent visit to Eastern Ukraine, Slavic Gospel Association’s Eric Mock had the chance to visit a couple of orphanages. Through both its Crisis Evangelism Fund and its Orphans Reborn program, SGA helps local churches to offer support for orphans in Ukraine.
“It’s a heartbreaking experience to sit down on the floor of one of the orphanages and have three little boys, probably ages three to four years old, begin to climb on you and talk to you and say, ‘Will you be my daddy?’” Mock shares. “And my wife was there [and they asked,] ‘Will you be my mommy?’”
For a lot of these kids, they’re orphaned because of poverty and war. In fact, 70 percent of the kids in orphanages in Eastern Ukraine have a living parent. However, these parents (and other relatives) can’t afford to take care of them.
