Premiere of the Against the Tide TV film “Little survivors from Mariupol”
On Easter Monday, the film “Little survivors from Mariupol” directed by Szymon Żuk premiered. The documentary tells the story of 62 orphans rescued from Mariupol by five heroic Americans with the support of Christians from Polish and Ukraine. Pastor Matthew Shea was at the head of the rescue team and was supported by Polish pastors Paweł Chojecki and Radosław Kopeć, as well as members of the New Covenant Church in Lublin and the editorial office of our TV. The documentary recounts the course of the rescue operation until March 4, when in the morning the children were safely brought from Ukraine to the Journalist’s House in Kazimierz Dolny. All those who were involved in the action jointly admitted: That this mission was successful is God’s miracle!
Soon , the documentary will also be available in Spanish, Ukrainian and German.
Everything that we have achieved so far has been possible thanks to God’s blessing, thanks to the generosity and support of our viewers, and thanks to the hard work of a talented and well-coordinated team.
We are not paid by any means by the government, political parties, corporations, or any other groups and therefore, we can work completely independently and achieve such success in reaching Poles with the truth.
