A New Ministry
SGA has a long history of helping Christians care for vulnerable people in society. Previously, one of the great needs has been offering help to those who live in poverty. Since the fall of Communism, however, a new and devastating problem has been imported from the West. The increasing curse of drug addiction is destroying lives and robbing whole families of meaning and hope. In keeping with our long tradition of helping those whom others neglect, SGA is planning to enter into partnership with Gospel workers who serve the Lord in this area.
A Necessary Ministry
In recent years the problem of drug addiction has exploded in Eastern Europe and governments have been unable and in some instances unwilling to offer help and treatment. This is a tragedy, since drug addiction destroys the lives of all involved. Families are torn apart and the addicts are dominated and consumed by the drugs they take. One former addict summed it up by saying ‘You take the drugs and the drugs take you.’
