As we see and hear about the events unfolding these days in Ukraine, we are filled with a deep sense of compassion for those who are losing homes, livelihoods, and loved ones. While we are across the world, we feel a deep sense of connection to those who are suffering, and we want to do what we can to help.
To that end, we would encourage you to continue to pray for Ukraine. Pray for peace, for wisdom for world leaders, for steps in negotiations, for protection of the vulnerable, for provision for those who have been displaced, for comfort for the grieving and hurting. Pray that our God would have mercy and turn the tide.
We also can participate financially in supporting some who have been displaced through our Alliance Global Emergency Response Fund. The first response with these funds will be through the national church body in Poland who has a department called Good Works Mission that will oversee the relief response. The national church campground, Ostróda Camp, is currently providing temporary housing for refugees and they are planning to set up shelters for the many more who are pouring into the country. Also, the local churches around Poland are preparing to distribute food and necessary hygiene supplies as a first response.
