"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."
— James 1:27
About this Project
There is no more hopeless creature in the world than an elderly person in Eastern Europe. Trying to forget and put behind communism, the Eastern European societies forget and put behind also the millions of elderly people who once suffered so much under these regimes. The gap between the future-pursuing young generation and the forgotten elderly is terrifyingly wide. The elderly don’t merely feel ignored in Eastern Europe; they feel betrayed and abandoned.
Many churches and Christians in this region of the world reach out with love and compassion, both to elderly church members, and beyond. Bringing with them food, clothing, medical care and whatever else is needed, these care workers minister God’s Word and the tender love of Christ into the homes and lives of the abandoned elderly.
