Help for Refugees Living in a Church in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine has prompted the greatest wave of refugees since the Second World War. Almost 15 million people have been forced to flee, 7 million of them within their own country. Many have found shelter in Church-run facilities. 

Help for Internally Displaced Refugees Living in a Church Center in Ukraine 

Currently 98 women and children are housed in the Catholic Pidlyute youth center in Ivano-Frankivsk, in West Ukraine, and Archbishop Volodymyr Vijtyshyn has written to ask our help in caring for them. “The worst thing,” he writes, “is that the people we are sheltering here have nowhere to return home to, since their houses and cities have been destroyed and bombed out. We as the Church are responsible for the people we have given shelter to.”

“We want to save these people from going hungry and provide them with a decent place to stay. But our financial resources are exhausted and now we are looking for help. And so we are turning to you. We are praying to Almighty God for you and for all the benefactors He has brought into our lives. May God bless you all!”

We are proposing to give $26,700 to help the local Church care for these 98 refugee women and children. 

Can you help us bring hope and relief to internally displaced refugees living in a Church center in Ukraine?
