Faces of The Fellowship: Maxim and Tatiana

Maxim, 7, and Tatiana, 16, have grown up in a tiny, dark hut that they share with their parents in Moldova. Their mother is unemployed and their father’s salary from his work as a plumber is not enough for the family to live on. The family fell into debt years ago, and Maxim and Tatiana spent their childhoods without running water or working gas lines. They had to borrow water from a neighbor when they wanted to drink or wash, and they used a dangerous wooden stove to keep warm.  The children's parents are filled with anxiety and despair, and most of the responsibility of caring for Maxim and running the household falls on Tatiana’s shoulders. Although she is still a teenager, she has taken on the role of an adult.  Thankfully, The Fellowship is able to remove some of that burden and help this family get back on their feet. We provide the family with food cards, hygienic products, and clothing, ensuring that these children have the basic necessities they need to grow up happy and healthy.

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

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.
