Russian – Ukrainian Aybolit (our version of Dr. Dolittle). ( The African journal of the pastor - Pilgrim) Part 5
One of the amazing people who invest his heart into Africa is Dr. Kirill. The young man from Russia has been saving lives of the kids on the Equator for a few years now alongside with the Ukrainian team of missionaries.
His clients in most cases are kids and adults from slums. Mostly these people can’t afford any basic medical help and Kirill turns into an angel guard for them.
Within these years the doctor himself has fallen sick with various African diseases. I remember one episode from one of my trips when he was sick with malaria and was helping a little boy picking warms from his body…
On the picture you can see one of his visits some days ago. They injected a fellow and treated a girl who burnt her legs with boiled water.
Kirill, I just want to say THANKS once more to you and to your spouse for your committed life to the ministry!!!
The angels with blankets.
The obligatory thing in the program of my team on the equator is a night raid to the streets to seek for street kids. Though it is not hard to find them here at all. The boys who sleep in sacks can be found here practically at every corner.
The majority of people who come with me to Africa for the first time have never seen something like that in their life. Children and teens sleep in rows curled up leaning to each other.
We have bought blankets and on making a hole in it preliminary for them not to be taking away from them and sold. We just wrap them up in them and bless them. Trust me, it is a real miracle for the kids when we come at night with blankets.

The social services came to the “Republic Pilgrim” for help. They asked to take into the center a 13-year-old boy temporarily, for the time of his medical examination. Afterwards the boy was to be taken to a special boarding school for kids with mental flaws. But did the boy really need to be in such a boarding school?

The trip around the world for the sake of the world without orphans. This was the motto of the team of the former Mariupol street kids riding across the entire Ukraine, Russia and Europe within the last 5 summer seasons. The former street kids show by their own example how life of a child can change if he or she is taken to a loving family and they call unto people not to be scared of adoption and to take kids from orphanages.

On July 16th the group of the former street kids and of their adoptive parents from Ukraine continued their worldwide bike tour “The World without orphans” with the vision about the world where there are no lonely children. Having ridden within the last 5 stages across the entire Ukraine, Russia and a part of Europe, the former street kids show by their own example how a life of an abandoned kid may change when he or she is taken to a loving family and they plead on behalf of other kids who need caring parents. This year the team will complete the fifth stage of the worldwide bike action across the Eurasian continent, on riding across Germany, Switzerland and France.

At this time last year my guys experienced a serious shock (I have 32 adopted kids). When we approached the Polish border within our worldwide bike action “The World without orphans!” the passports of the half of the team arrived without visas in them. It was a knockdown.

As the medical workers point out all the kids in Pilgrim have weak immunity, avitaminosis and consequences of unhealthy life. Summer is just high time for the guys to get the energy charge, vitamins, to get impressions and to get strength for the new academic year.

In the “Republic Pilgrim” it is a special day even though a bit sad one – the Graduation 2017. It is always time of special experiences and a very significant event for the graduates. Each one of them has a very rough story behind them, their life used to be destroyed; they used to have a mental trauma and a tough way of restoration.
