A real emergency

Updated: Sep 6, 2019


I’m sorry to report we have a real emergency on our hands in Minsk.

“The Great Kozovaya” found us a wonderful new facility for feeding the homeless and warehousing incoming loads of humanitarian aid.

It’s more than 5,000 square feet — with rent of only $127.16 per month.

But the brutal wintertime temperatures brought a utility bill of $1,195.29.

It’s got to be paid by May 1st, or the property reverts to the authorities.

And there’s a new load of humanitarian aid, nearly 7 tons’ worth from Sweden — clothing, mattresses, beds, furniture, and more — trapped in the building.

It all goes to the state if we don’t pay the utility bill.

I’m sorry to ask with such urgency, but I really your help with this.

Please consider giving a gift to New Thing immediately to help us meet this serious need — and save 7 tons of aid for the poor.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Thank you in advance for your generosity today!

Much love,

Doug Brendel
