Ukraine and Local Refugees Support
From Ukraine directly helping the families with batteries to provide electricity for their refrigerator, internet, and heat in their homes.
Also sent funds with a group in Poland that is working at the border.
From: Сергей Поканевич - Odessa, Ukraine. "Now all our relatives and neighbors have non-permanent batteries to continue living during a blackout. It's difficult when you have food spoiling in the refrigerator, complete darkness and isolation from the world. Our parents have a lot of lonely elderly neighbors, so they are very happy with such attention! In addition, food was purchased for them. There were days when there was no electricity for several days, and they also turned off their heating and water. And this is all against the background of the daily missile attacks that Russia makes against Ukraine. Odessa is the very desired city that Putin needs." Christina
LOCAL REFUGEES SUPPORT
One of the families that have moved here from Odessa, Ukraine, her dad is a heart patient, can now afford the hospital treatment with Global Compassion Inc. support. (See image below of the medicines.)
Supporting two refugee families that are in town. Bought a used car for one and fixed another car and now looking for a rental place for one of the families. Bought bicycles for the children. The kids are able to ride their new bicycles after 3 months of Michigan winter. They are on a spring break. They are learning English and slowly adjusting to schools and climate.
Project in 2023 for Benin Africa to Fix This School Building
There is only one building with 3 separate classrooms that receive 92 students.
The elementary school, C.S. Horizon Primary School, Azohoue-Cada, Benin, was established on October 5, 2016.
In 2022, the students received school supplies and backpacks. After seeing the condition of the school building, it was decided to fund the construction of a new school building for these children.
2022 Community Outreach
We were also able to reach out to our community with your donations by providing funds to families in emergency needs for food and rental payments, especially when three houses were burned down in our county. We also provided gift cards for gas and supported our local organizations- MCFOAR, For A Brighter Tomorrow, Open Door and Mustard Seed Shelter Home in Saginaw. We also supported an inmate towards 2 diploma certification programs.
