Host Country: Hungary
We don't often think about material needs in Europe, as they are often less dramatic and less widespread than other places in the world, but the needs are there. World Partners staff David and Grace McBrier have seen some of this firsthand in their ministry in Hungary. Each year, the McBriers purchase book bags and fill them with school supplies to give to underprivileged children through a partnership with a local community outreach program. They are given to the children from two local elelmentary schools in the city of Vac. Before distributing the bags, David and Grace pray over them and add a Bible and a letter telling the child they will be prayed for all year.
