“Family to Family” provides respite for Ukraine’s displaced children and orphans

“Family to Family” provides respite for Ukraine’s displaced children and orphans
Article by: Lisa Spencer

“From Family to Family” is a program that supports Ukraine’s war zone refugees as they adapt to sudden, major life changes and look for new jobs or homes.

Similar in some aspects to a student cultural exchange program, this Global Christian Support outreach connects families across cultures and circumstances. Children and orphans from Ukraine’s war zone who are between the ages of 9 and 17 are matched with safe loving homes abroad and within Ukraine for short-term respite comfort and care. Parents and caregivers have the focused opportunity to look for new housing and employment, and the receiving families have the opportunity to reach out and make a concrete uplifting difference for innocent young victims, thus enriching their own lives as well.

“From Family to Family” is still accepting applications and donations. The receiving families are responsible for all finances to care for the children in their care; monies are also needed for the Visas and paperwork processing as well as airfare/transportation.
