This is Sasha. We met him at the JAM Day Center when he visited with a friend. He shared that he was going to be sent to an orphanage soon because his home was bad. The next day we visited his home. He was correct, it was bad. Together with social services we have worked with his mother, Natasha, to help him stay with her. Our team has cleaned a place that was in very bad condition, officially enrolled him in school and a sports program, took him for a hair cut, taken him on a week long hiking trip, and helped get new clothes. Generous supporters also helped buy bunk beds as it was required that he had his own bed as sleeping with his mother was no longer acceptable.
Please pray that Natasha would begin to properly care for Sasha. Pray we have wisdom in how to help.
