Ukraine is in a crisis which is changing hour by hour. Only God knows what the situation will be as you read this email.
But we praise Him that He has given us channels to send help to our Christian brothers and sisters there. For they are in desperate need of food and other basic humanitarian aid, especially the elderly and other very vulnerable believers. And most of Ukraine is still facing winter cold, with temperatures around freezing point. Baptist and Pentecostal churches have contacted Barnabas requesting assistance for food.
Our partners in Ukraine have long experience of distributing food through local churches to Christians in poor areas, both in the capital Kyiv and in rural regions. The need is now far greater and more urgent than it was even one week ago.
A gift of £15 ($20; €18) will pay for a food package that could last a young couple with a child for about a week, or an elderly couple on their own for two weeks.
The food package will contain rice, pasta, buckwheat (a very traditional food staple in Ukraine), canned fish, canned beans, condensed milk, cooking oil, tea and more.
Pray for Ukraine, and please – if you can – give a food package to a Ukrainian Christian family.
