How it started
About Thy Neighbours

How we got started on Thy Neighbours

It all starts in February 2022...

February 2022
Returning to my home country of Romania for a short visit, in Feb 2022, my American husband Dave Rogers and I found ourselves shocked by the unfolding invasion in neighboring country Ukraine.
Reality struck
Separated by only a few hours’ drive and a wooden bridge, we watched as terror rained down on families, not unlike our own. Watching them go through such suffering and abuse pulled deeply on our heart strings
A Calling
Returning to the U.S. was not an option. As Christians we are called to love thy neighbor. Even though we didn't know what to do, we knew we will be led to where we were needed most.
Getting started
With a camera in hand and a few supplies, we headed out to the border. What unfolds in this film is a remarkable story of resilience for both us and the individuals we met along the way.
There's always hope
Even though we didn't know how to help, we decided to use what was in our hands. We served through simple gifts – cooking a meal, sharing stories, building homes and lending a hand where needed. We found that amid the tragedy there is hope; that a neighbors’ kindness does make a difference.
The Goal
Our purpose with this film is to tell the story of the women and children that we met along the way and to reflect their resilience. ”THY NEIGHBOURS" is a call to action to everyone on Earth to be part of a powerful kindness movement.

Our goal is to highlight the power of kindness amid tragedy and the strength that hope can provide.
Independently Distributed with your help
We are looking for people who are passionate about helping us making a difference in our society with their individual  gifts or talents. Every one of you plays a crucial part in reaching and impacting more  people as well as create and release  more films with purpose.

That's why we believe in acts of kindess through Pay-it-forward model.
