"Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God
our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows
and refuse to let the world corrupt us." James
It's tough being a child in Russia
of life is grim and tragic.
There are an estimated 2 million orphans and street
children in this country. They have been robbed of what
should be the most promising and exciting years of their
lives. Many of the children live on the streets; some
are orphaned, while a number of them were simply abandoned
by their parents.
Lastly, there are children who live in homes marked
by poverty, and by alcohol, and drug abuse. A young
boy or girl ends up in a state-run orphanage because
his or her parents have died or are too poverty-stricken
to take care of them. Still others are in orphanages
because they have been taken away from parents who routinely
abuse or neglect them.
Once there, the meager provisions, inadequate clothing,
and inadequate staffing take their toll on children
who should normally be vibrant and happy. Many develop
deep psychological scars and withdraw into themselves.
When they turn 16, they leave the orphanage unprepared
to face an uncertain world, which frequently sends an
already shattered life into an endless, downward spiral.
A few of the fortunate ones will get adopted, but what
about those left behind? Who will send them love and
hope? Who will care for them?
Russian Missions feels it is our duty to respond to
their cries and to respond with compassion and nurturing
that each child so deserves. It is that compassion that
will teach them hope. It is the fulfillment of hope
that will teach them faith. What would you do for your
