Sharing the Love of Christ

Alexandru, Age 14 "This box makes me feel I'm not forgotten or alone. Thank you for bringing joy to our table through these gifts. Now I feel that Christmas is a special time that spreads kindness and hope."  For thousands of families like Alexandru's, Christmas is a luxury they can't afford. A combination of unemployment, the lack of basic food and inadequate state support create daily challenges for survival for many across Eastern Europe.

We work all year round with many of these families and each Christmas we share God's love with a box of food basics and treats.                

What we do: 

DELIVER A FOOD PARCEL: Each box contains a selection of rice, pasta, sugar, flour, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, biscuits, soup mix, cooking oil, condensed milk, jam, sweets, and chocolate. 

SHARE THE CHRISTMAS STORY: Each person and family who receives a Christmas Box also has the opportunity to hear the Christmas story. Our local coordinator will happily sit and talk about Jesus with anyone who wants and also has plenty of Christian literature to leave for a person or family to read through later. 

LOVE & CARE FOR ALL  We give out 30,000 boxes every year to the wide range of people we work with, regardless of race or religion. We bless the elderly, homeless, orphans, widows, and poor and marginalized in Eastern Europe. 

Each box costs $40 to prepare, pack and deliver. How many boxes can you help with today? 

"Maybe, for those who donate, those who pack, Operation Christmas Love is just a food parcel, but for those who receive, it is much more - it is love, care and hope," said Alexandru Aftinescu, one of MWB's field workers in Moldova.
