Mercy Projects conducts a Child Sponsorship project in Ukraine to keep children at home with their mother or family members. Our goal is to keep children out of orphanages and home with family. Child Sponsorship supports the entire family and is the first step to bringing hope and health to these needy children.
Anastasia and her younger sister Valeria are very close. They said, “We want to pray for our father, that he would come home safe and healthy. He is a real patriot of our country! We love and miss him!”
Please, pray for the girls and their mother, for their health, and peace in Ukraine. Sponsorship of Anastasia would be an encouragement and a blessing to this family.
