Every Childhood Matters

This Summer you can be a lifeline to children facing conflict, anxiety and isolation

In the last few months Ukrainian children and families have experienced the pain, tears and loss of loved ones, have suffered broken nights from the wail of sirens and moving from bed to bomb shelter and are stressed, tense and anxious. This summer, more than ever before, many children living in conflict areas like Ukraine as well as refugee children now in Moldova and Romania are looking for an escape from the conflict, a safe place to play, experience joy and fun and the chance to be children again.

As a Christian charity we want to respond to God’s call to care for the poor and disadvantaged. Isaiah 40 v30-31 says, “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.”

Please can you help be a lifeline to children in 2022 like Viktoria in Ukraine?

“I’m so looking forward to going this summer. At Camp I learned about true friendship." – Viktoria

 

It costs £12 per child for one day of Summer Camp, It would be wonderful if you would consider a kind gift to cover one or more days to pay for a vulnerable child to attend camp.

And if you were able to make a very special gift of £84 this could cover the costs of a full week for one child to attend camp.

We continue to work, day and night, in partnership with local churches, bringing food, clothing and hygiene parcels to hotspots where people have lost homes and transporting refugees. All of us at the Mission are determined that with your help in 2022 we can be a lifeline to children whose families have been split apart by this war, giving them the opportunity to enjoy summer camps.

Any funds raised over and above our target will be used where most urgently needed to benefit children and families in Eastern Europe supported by MWB.

A gift of £12 could cover the cost for 1 child for a single day of Summer Camp.
