Off to college ... It can be stressful.
Especially if you're an orphan in Belarus.
You leave the "Children's Village," where you've spent all or most of your life, and you have nothing.
Graduates arrive at college with no bedding, no linens, no kitchenware. No iron. Not even a teapot.
And staying put isn't an option.
You've "aged out" of the state system.
That's where New Thing comes in.
We have the joy of providing "Life Starter Kits" for graduating orphans.
Here are the kids who will leave the Children's Village in Kobryn in a few short weeks (photos by their own house moms).
I know times are tight here in the U.S., but some of have been blessed enough that we can still give a helping hand to others.
If you can, please help these orphans.
* A gift of $54.59 provides a blanket, a pillow, and bed linens for one orphan. * A gift of $91.69 provides all this plus pots and pans. If we receive more than the total we need, we’ll provide irons and tea kettles, too. Any gift, large or small, will help.
I'll keep you posted on our progress. Thanks for journeying with us! Much love, Doug Brendel
