East Texans head to Poland to help Ukrainian refugees
“Our neighbor does not have to be next door. Our neighbors are people in need, people that we can help.”
TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Two East Texans have traveled to Poland in an effort to help Ukrainian refugees for the month.
Robert and Mindy Watson said they’re doing it to help their neighbors.
“We do it because of our love for the Lord and our love for our neighbor,” Robert Watson said. “Our neighbor does not have to be next door. Our neighbors are people in need, people that we can help.”
The Watson’s traveled with Texas Baptist Men (TBM) on March 23rd to provide help, hope, and healing to the refugees.
“Many of them have lost everything,” Robert Watson said.
He said it is hard to imagine what the families have been through, to flee their home.
“I don’t know what it would take for someone to leave their home with their two children, perhaps leaving their husband behind,” Robert Watson said. “But, there is a great need, and we’re doing our best to fill that need.”
The Watsons will be in Poland until April 25 with TBM.
