Michele and Wally Connor, Executive Directors of S.O.N.G., recently returned from the Ukraine/Poland border a few weeks ago providing support to children at refugee camps. Wally Connor will be returning in mid-November to Krakow, Poland for meetings with partner organizations and then to Lviv, Ukraine to help distribute winter clothing to orphaned children in more than 20 temporary safe havens in western Ukraine. This is S.O.N.G.’s priority right now as winter is right around the corner, power outages are common interfering with heating the facilities, and energy supplies are forecasted to be sporadic throughout the winter.
General donations to this critical project are needed and welcome and may be made
