The Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr has been asked to help facilitate funds for a young Orthodox couple in Albania in a difficult financial position, expecting their first baby by mid-November.

The petitioner writes:

Dear Sirs, my name is Era Ademiaj and I am from Gjirokastër, Albania. I am an Orthodox Christian and in desperate need of your assistance for I have nowhere else to turn. I am 8 months pregnant, and my husband does not have a steady job and cannot adequately provide for us as the economy in the region where we live is almost nonexistent.

Although my husband has done his absolute best to provide for us (working as a day laborer and selling what he can in the local marketplace) we are still financially destitute and do not have the finances to buy what we need for our coming baby.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance the Order could provide us towards the expenses of delivery, towards baby clothes, and towards food for the baby.

With love in Christ,


The Order has verified the authenticity of the petition and is looking to raise $3,000 for this family. Please help the Order meet this immediate need by donating any amount that you can to help in this worthy cause. Donations can be made on the Order's website through the Donate button. In your donation, please indicate it’s for Era’s Baby. This emergency fundraiser will end on November 30. ​

PLEASE NOTE: All donations for this Emergency Fundraiser go 100% directly to this cause. The Order retains nothing.
