We are coordinating and funding the effort to help provide evacuation, temporary housing, and accommodations in Poland, Romania, and other nations to as many refugees as possible with partners and churches in those countries.
Border control points are overwhelmed and have created long convoy backup lines and refugees camping outside waiting to get across. We are partnering with local churches on the Ukrainian border to get food clothing and find temporary housing while they wait to get cleared.
If you would like to contribute to this effort, you can do so via the campaign linked below or mail a check to Bethany Slavic Church, 864 Dawn Ave, Ephrata, PA 17522. Please indicate that this is for Ukraine Refugee Fund.
All donations are tax-deductible; 100% of your donations will go directly to help refugees.
Every day, we receive updates with powerful stories on how our fund money is helping the Ukrainian refugees in this incredible time of need. We recognize this is a large undertaking, but God is faithful and will provide for our needs. Will you consider a long term pledge to the Ukraine War Refugee Fund?
What is a Pledge? a Pledge is a donation you are willing to give that is spread out through a period of time, set-up with automatic deposit into our fund. This allows us to continue have new funds come in and cover new needs as they come up from the field.
Many families are currently sheltering in bomb shelters, subway stations, basements, or tents. Those able to evacuate west are headed towards Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova. With few exceptions, Ukrainian mobilization orders are not allowing men 18 to 60 to leave the country. As a result, women, and children who are crossing the borders at this crucial time, are left even more vulnerable during this crisis.
We are working through our direct family contacts to ensure our donations and efforts are making a direct impact and are going to the immediate support of families.
