Bulgaria is an Eastern European country that was under a brutal
communist dictatorship for many years. Zhana Georgieva was a
young girl who grew up in this harsh land of beautiful people.
After the fall of communism, Zhana came in contact with the
Nazarene Church and soon became the Director of Compassionate
Ministries for the church. Around 2004, an ICCF member was
touring Bulgaria and discovered the work she was doing. She
ministered to children in leukemia hospital, a special needs
orphanage in Sophia, and drove many kilometers to a small
village named Vidrare where she began ministering to the staff
and children of the school. The ICCF has supported the work of
this school through Zhana. She continues to do similar work in
the villages of Manaselka and Ravnishte.
