The Harbor in St. Petersburg, Russia recently shared a couple of great news/updates that have happened in the past two months. It’s refreshing to see the good when we are constantly bombarded with the bad as this pandemic is the center of all news. Take the opportunity to read through these stories and rest in thankfulness and joy for our friends in Russia!

Orphan World Relief has had a two year relationship supporting refugee kids on the island of Lesvos in Greece. Our partnership with the Refugee Network and Euro Relief continues.
Currently, Euro Relief is requiring all volunteers to stay a minimum of one month. In the past we had a special arrangement allowing teams to serve for one or two weeks. That is no longer the case. As you can imagine, many of the people that have expressed interest in going back to Lesvos find it difficult to stay that long. Due to this requirement we do not have set times for teams to go. If you are able to go either as an individual or a team, please let us know and we’ll put you in contact with our Refugee Network partners.
