Faces of The Fellowship: Ilene & Alexander

The Khudiakova family consists of four children who range in age from 3 to 21 years old. Their mother agonizes over the fact that she cannot financially support her children, whom she loves dearly. Her husband is retired and receives a small pension, and she works extremely hard as a nursing assistant in a hospital, but her salary is very small and is often delayed. Their joint income is hardly enough for the two of them, let alone the four children.The two eldest children are out of the house, but the two younger children, Ilene and Alexander, are still home and are often sick. Alexander was diagnosed with double pneumonia shortly after his birth, and ever since his health has been in jeopardy. A third of the parents’ measly income is spent on medication.The Fellowship’s assistance is the only help this family receives, and it plays a key factor in their ability to survive and look forward to a better life. They are so grateful to know they are not alone and that they have somewhere they can turn for support when they need it most.

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
