Update On The Refugee Crisis

Update on the Refugee Crisis

The Refugee Crisis is not over, and the plight of the refugees is as difficult as ever. The situation at the Jungle refugee camp in Calais, France is complicated and tragic. More than half of the camp has been dismantled and demolished by French authorities. The south section has been completely closed, with authorities making plans to demolish the north side as well. The remaining 4,500 asylum seekers in the camp are being forced to either register for asylum in France, or leave the camp and find a new place to stay until the crossing to England can be accomplished. In Dunkirk, officials have taken significant action to correct inhumane living conditions for families. Heated shelters have been provided with…

After The Fire

After the Fire

Five years ago, Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland decided to partner with Convoy of Hope Europe and adopt the community of Glinjeni, Moldova. Cornerstone sent multiple teams every year to the village, repairing houses, digging a well, and building a church. Over the course of three years, Glinjeni started to change. When the Adopt-A-Community program officially finished in 2014, Cornerstone decided to continue the relationship with the church in Glinjeni, and still regularly provides assistance and mentorship. Five months ago, the church was set on fire due to the influence of the Orthodox church against the evangelical movement. After the fire was put out, people from the community whose lives had been changed through the Adopt-A-Community program arrived to help…

A Time For Rabbits

A Time for Rabbits

In the country of Moldova, poverty is the norm. Caught between the East and West, Moldova is a former Soviet nation taken from its mother country of Romania by Tsar Nicholas of Russia right before the Soviet Revolution in 1917. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, Moldova has struggled to develop an independent national identity. It is the poorest country in Europe. The level of poverty in some villages rivals what you would see in Africa or South America, but definitely not what you would expect to see in Europe. Convoy of Hope Europe (COHEU) developed the Adopt-A-Community program around areas like these, where organizations and churches can make a long-term investment into improving conditions for those stuck in…
