Children Left Behind


Many Romanian children have said goodbye to their parents who’ve migrated to other countries in search of work.

At least 2 million Romanian adults have crossed into neighboring countries in search of higher-paying jobs — often leaving their children behind. Toader, 8, (pictured)  and Parascheva, 11, were abandoned and now live with their ailing grandmother in a cramped two-room cottage. The children earn good grades in school, but the family has sold most of its pigs just to survive.

Please pray for God’s comfort and care for Romanian children and their cargivers.

“God, You are sovereign over these children’s pain and struggles. Help Romania’s leaders improve infrastructure so families can seize employment opportunities at home and be reunited.”
