The Ukraine Crisis

The conflict that began in eastern Ukraine in 2014 has, in recent weeks encompassed the whole of Ukraine as Russian forces have undertaken a full-scale invasion. Tens of thousands of people have been killed and an estimated 10 million people have now been displaced, with many becoming refugees in countries such as Poland, Moldova, Romania and Slovakia. 

The country faces an enormous humanitarian crisis. In response to the devastating effects of the war, Mission Without Borders has engaged in distributing tens of thousands of urgently-needed parcels of food and hygiene products. Church kitchens have been preparing hot food for those in need and helping to evacuate women and children from Kyiv and the wider region, as well as providing much-needed shelter.

Reflection from the Field

Mykola Bogdanets has been the country manager since MWB Ukraine was established in 1993, recently shared his thoughts about events in Ukraine:

"Ukraine’s war-torn economy has been plunged into crisis, Churches are in round-the-clock prayer, in church kitchens they prepare hot food for refugees and soldiers who take away thermoses with food all day. We also help evacuate women and children from Kyiv and the wider region. Today, again at 7 am, our employee Stanislav Boyko went to Kyiv to deliver food and bring back refugees who temporarily will be housed in the church and a hotel in Sarny.

"Churches of all denominations are constantly holding prayer services, asking God to protect Ukraine, to turn the enemy away from us outside Ukraine

“I thank all the dear donors of the Mission for your contribution to the welfare of the Ukrainian families, children and adults. Please pray for peace in Ukraine and may God bless you for sharing your hearts with us."
