Project HOPEFUL Fact of the Day: Today we get a report from the FIG Program Director and Ukraine contact, Traci Heim ~

Three of our FIG children have identified families. One family is currently in Eastern Europe for the first trip. Traci Heim, the director of the FIG program is currently in Ukraine seeking to create relatiopnships with orphanages in order to better identify and advocate for the waiting children. Mercy Projects/Eastern European Outreach has hosted their stay in Kiev and took her to visit a church-run orphanage outside of Kiev. It doesn’t house HIV+ orphans, but she met a sibling group of 4, ages 16-4 who desperately need a family. The oldest girl will be allowed to remain at the orphanage until she is 18 and can be adopted up until that time. We need to identify their family!  Traci has pictures and video of the children and can be contacted at figs@projecthopeful.org.
