Story number 3 for 14 Jan 2003

By January 14, 2003

(Ukraine)–Although the Ukraine has seen some change in its struggle to rise above unemployment and economic woes, the effect of the troubles are now trickling down to the families, and in turn, the children. However, Bethany Christian Services’ Kristen Roeters says they are working to change that, adding a recent visit to their offices in the Ukraine proved to be encouraging. “We were able to meet with a number of families who have been re-united with their kids. That’s an amazing experience in and of itself. This project does work; through sponsorship, these kids can return home, or can be prevented from going into the institution.” Roeters says through their work there, the staff is able to share their faith. “Everybody that is served by Bethany Christian Services, knows that we are a Christian agency, that we base everything that we do on our motto of manifesting the love and compassion of Jesus Christ through protecting and enhancing the lives of children and families through quality social services.”
