In these past few weeks, close to 4 million men, women and children have been displaced in Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands have fled their home, seeking safety in neighboring countries. There are many more who are still in the country and face an uncertain tomorrow. For them, shelter, warm clothing, food, and even life itself are no longer a certainty. We, as a church, are praying for our brothers and sisters in need and want to help practically.
We are partnering with the Christian relief organization out of Germany who have provided rapid humanitarian aid since 1976 and have now also stepped up to help in Ukraine.
Your contribution will help to scale up the aid effort and support the increasing number of people in need. You will be providing blankets, food, and hope to those surrounded by war and struggling with extreme cold.
The cost of delivering 20 tons of humanitarian aid into affected areas is only $4000. That means $10 delivers enough supplies for a family of 4 to have enough food for 9 days.
Please donate and know that 100% of your contribution will be used to provide relief directly to those affected by this crisis. May God bless your generosity.
