Help the Gomez Family Host Dina

Help the Gomez Family Host Dina: Donate Now!

This summer we have the joy of hosting Dina again from Belarus through ABRO (the American Belarusian Relief Organization.) This program has influenced Brooke’s life since she was 6 when her family hosted a child for the first time and we are so excited to have Dina back with our family this year!

Dina lives in Mogilev, Belarus with 11 family members. Her parents are incredibly grateful that she will have the opportunity to be in the United States in order for her immune system to have respite from the radiation they live in daily.

Belarus received 70% of the fallout from 1986’s Chernobyl nuclear disaster and the country and it’s inhabitants are still gravely affected today. Some scientists say there was 100 times more radiation released than there was when the atomic bomb was dropped at Hiroshima. Since then there has been 200% increase in thyroid diseases and cancers as well as an increase in leukemia, birth defects, and vitamin deficiencies. The disaster left the country as a whole in great need of help. Now their main source of income, agriculture and forestry, is covered in radiation, and with the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the country found themselves in severe economic hardship that they have not fully recovered from.

Spending a mere 6 weeks with us will boost Dina’s immune system for the full coming year! She will also have the opportunity to receive medical care donated by local physicians, eye doctors, and dentists while staying with us.

The cost of getting Dina here and back is $2,000. Would you consider helping us bring her to the U.S. this summer? Any gift is helpful. Also, would you please pray with us for her family and each of the children coming to the U.S. this year, that they would receive much more than healthcare, and they would experience the love of Jesus.
