It is a real challenge to get a program such as foster care off the ground. The countries we work in are at different places in the process. None of them have a sustainable, functioning foster system to support their many orphans. Lost Sparrows is working alongside several other organizations to bring training and support for existing foster families, as well as recruit new foster families. Most foster families are not supported financially, or emotionally. Progress is slow, but the families that we have worked with are so appreciative of our support, and always ask us to come again.
Update – December 2019
Thank you for giving to Lost Sparrows foster care closet support in Bulgaria. We had enough donations to fill the closet again and provide a small Christmas gift to foster parents.
As you consider year-end donations, we hope you might keep us in mind.
We have big plans for 2020. Stacey flies out the end of January to join a team of like-minded non-profits who want to change the face of orphan care across the Balkans.
