An amazing year, thanks to you

Updated: Sep 6, 2019

Kristina met with our “Response of the Heart” team in Minsk today and went over the final figures for our work together in 2013:

New Thing provided $73,000.74 in 2013, including $27,604 for special projects.

We served 6,700 individuals personally, plus many thousands of others through 120 organizations.

We received and distributed 21 loads of donated food and goods, a total of 232 metric tons, with a total value of $176,000.

Every individual request for help is handwritten in a notebook. “There are piles of these notebooks,” Kristina reports, “and then when the aid comes in that fits the request, the person is notified and the date they receive it is noted.” (All subject to audits by the Belarusian government.)

Our humble thanks to everyone who gave in 2013 to help us share God’s love in such practical ways with needy people all across Belarus! God bless you!
