Rescued from Death

Rescued from Death

Last October a few of our Ukraine Without Orphans (UWO) partners were volunteering at an orphanage for children with special needs when they found six-year-old Andrei—in a room, alone and dying. The nurse at the orphanage had noted his 105-degree temperature and quarantined him to die.

When the volunteers asked tube nurse what was going on, she became defiant, referring to Andrei as a “plant” that must be allowed to die because he was “diseased” (Andrei also has cerebral palsy). She refused to call an ambulance or allow them to enter the room. They insisted and eventually called an ambulance themselves, but when the paramedics arrived, they refused to take Andrei to the hospital, saying he was already too far gone.

Refusing to give up, the volunteers contacted fellow UWO member Nikolai Kuleba, the Commissioner for Children’s Rights for the President of Ukraine. Their hope was that he could use his influence to leverage the situation.

Andrei was then transferred to a hospital where he was closely monitored until his temperature returned to normal. But Andrei isn’t out of the woods yet. Please pray for his emotional as well as physical healing from this recent trauma. And would you ask God to touch the nurse and other orphanage personnel, as only He can, with His love and a desire to see all life as precious? Meanwhile, watch your e-mail for the heart-warming conclusion to Andrei's story!
