The Heart of a Child

Year after year, many orphans in Moldova and Transnistria are getting frostbite from the bitterly cold winters. CERI has the great opportunity to help Transnistrian children in need. To give you get an idea of how these boots are helping the children, consider these statements from orphans who received boots in past years.

“This pair of shoes is a gift from God, an answer to my prayer. God saw my need to have a pair of new winter shoes and He sent me people to cover this need.”

“When I received my pair of shoes, I was happy because I knew that I could play in the snow again. I love to play in the snow and the new shoes were very comfortable.”

“Every time I put on my shoes I know that somewhere far, far away there is someone who prays for me and loves me.”

The time has come that we must pay for the boots that will be put on the Transnistrian children’s feet this December. Please help these orphans directly by donating toward the purchase of their boots today.
