How We Are Rescuing Lives

  • We are currently installing heating infrastructure like wood-burning stoves in several communities as well as providing vital fuel like wood for those that we know will have NO HEAT this winter. 

  • We are also providing generators so that warming centers, homes, and community buildings can keep people warm, can provide drinking water, and feed people.

  • We are helping several groups who are housing and feeding refugees These refugees, who are mostly women and children, have left everything behind. We have provided over 20,000 meals for refugees this year.

  • We have supplied agricultural tools such as greenhouses, tillers, and seedlings to a large community in central Ukraine that with our aid now has hundreds of vegetables growing that will feed people through a long winter with empty grocery stores.

  • We are providing much-needed food, clothing, and hygiene supplies to several partners in Ukraine as they meet the needs of displaced people and local residents struggling due to a massive wave of unemployment.

The Latest War Updates

  • In the last few weeks, Russia has systematically targeted Ukraine's energy infrastructure. Electrical power stations have been destroyed, and natural gas distribution hubs damaged. The extent of the destruction is so widespread now that millions of people in Ukraine are without power.

  • Most people in Ukraine live in apartment buildings. When the power is disrupted, all the water pumps supplying the running water and the heating radiators become non-functional. So millions now have no heat or water.

  • Although some of the Russian-annexed territories have been recaptured and reclaimed by Ukraine, our partners tell us that it is not safe for people to return because of fighting in those areas. So those who have fled the east or south must remain displaced.

  • Hospitals are becoming vulnerable to the electricity shortage in the country. Surgeries are being done by headlamps and by using generator power.

  • Most refugee housing stays at capacity even as many Ukrainians leave Ukraine and Poland for other destinations. Housing is always at capacity. As the winter crisis deepens inside Ukraine, many millions more are expected to arrive in Poland and elsewhere.

  • We believe that the situation inside Ukraine will get worse as winter approaches. Local governments are already expecting more electrical blackouts, natural gas shortages, and food insecurity.

  • People all around Ukraine are living in fear. Even local churches fighting to share hope are feeling the strain and wonder how they are still alive. Yet they continue to fight to meet the needs of their neighbors in heroic ways.
