S.A.R.A. - Martha Siegel, missionary to the Ukraine
Sharing Americas Recourses Abroad better known as S.A.R.A. is a medical mission group of the Ohio Conference of The United Church of Christ. We are ecumenical and have members and supporters who do not have a medical back ground but a love for Missions. I became involved with S.A.R.A. in 1998 and since then have made over 13 trips to Ukraine staying and working (I'm an Occupational Therapist) at the Good Samaritan Home for Children. This home is part of the Hungarian Reform Church and receives support from the Dutch Reform Church part of our wider church. I truly consider Good Samaritan my second home and feel blessed to be able to go there to work with the special needs girls.
I'm planning a trip nearly every year and I would encourage you to take a look at the S.A.R.A. link, spend some time in meditation and see if God speaks to your heart to go along or help support in anyway you feel called to do. Thank you for taking the time to share this time with me.
SARA's Mission: To offer medical assistance to improve the well-being of poor people around the world.
SARA (Sharing America's Resources Abroad) is a nonprofit organization incorporated in Ohio. It is an ecumenical ministry affiliated with the Ohio Conference of the United Church of Christ. SARA distributes medical supplies, equipment and expertise throughout the world. SARA believes that by helping people to help themselves, and by giving them a boost towards self-sufficiency, the world will become a better place.
Resources to accomplish SARA's mission come from volunteer participation and charitable donations provided by health-care providers, religious organizations, businesses, not-for-profit corporations and concerned individuals. SARA is particularly interested in working with other not-for-profit organizations who are seeking to serve others in the same way.
