Description

Although communism collapsed in Eastern Europe nearly 30 years ago, its effects can still be seen today. Jobs remain scarce since the close of hundreds of collective farms and factories in the late 1980s. Families that had their land stolen by the communist government still struggle to rebuild their lives. As the cost of living continues to rise in spite of low incomes, families wonder how they will survive. For the poorest of Christian families in Romania, Liberia, and Haiti, the Adopt-A-Family program has been a ray of hope. Sponsors provide $75 a month to send parcels of food and healthcare items to large families that have no regular income. In 2008, this program expanded to include needy families in the Middle East as a way to show God’s love to both believers and unbelievers.
