Saving Moses meets Albania

Greetings from Albania! Yesterday we had the privilege of experiencing a wonderful ministry / NGO for little people under 5 yrs old. We were able to meet around 50 small people between 0-5 years old. Many of these children have been abandoned by their moms & families & consequently need a stable & safe place where they can grow, be fed & cared for.

We also had the honor of meeting 2 new moms – one has a little girl who is 2months old & the other mom is about 6months preg. Both of these unwed moms do not have a permanent place to live nor employment by which to support themselves or their babies. One of the moms is from an orphanage & as such has no familial support. The other mom has been estranged from her family when they found out that she was pregnant. In Albania if a woman gets pregnant out of wedlock, it is common for her family to disown her so she is often left to fend for herself & for her baby, in a country w rather high unemployment. It is a very fightening time for a new mother & I was deeply moved by the tremendous pressure & uncertainty these mothers are facing.

I find in my travels that it is a universal human desire to be loved & secure. As a mother, with Jesus, nothing is more important that we want to give our children than love, security & a future filled w hope

    I am excited too about your trip to Albania and all that is happening. We are prayng for you and are glad that the love of God is being demonstrated in such a tangible way through your ministry.

  3. Hi Sarah. I found your work through the photography blog of Steve Stanton. I have been sending that blog post to everyone I know so they can see specifically the faces of the orphans in Albania. I want to know how I can get involved with Saving Moses. I currently live and work as a photographer in Costa Rica (though I’m originally from Tennessee) but I feel my heart being pulled to Albania after seeing those photos. If you receive this comment, will you please have someone contact me on volunteering with your organization? My email address is knstinnett@yahoo.com. Thank you so much for all you do.
