In a March 15, 2022 update, Episcopal Relief and Development reported on their efforts to help the people of Ukraine as they flee the violence of the Russian invasion. Here’s how you can help.
As violence escalates in Ukraine, over one million people have already fled the country — and the borders are flooded with many more people desperate to leave.
Almost all of them are women and children who have had to seek safety on their own, leaving their husbands, fathers, brothers and sons behind.
As this crisis continues to evolve, we are working with Anglican agencies and our other partners to provide humanitarian assistance, and urgently ask for your help.
Your emergency gift today will support our immediate response, providing cash, blankets, hygiene supplies and other needs as this crisis unfolds.
Our faith networks are currently on the ground in the border areas of Poland, Hungary and Romania, and we will continue to coordinate with them in order to help those who have been displaced. Specifically, our partner ACT Alliance is helping families on the Hungarian border, and our Anglican partners are mobilizing both an immediate and long-term response in Poland, Romania and Hungary.
|As you may know, helping families fleeing violence has been at the heart of our mission from the very beginning. In fact, we were established by The Episcopal Church to assist people fleeing Europe during World War II.
Today, we are counting on this faith community to join us in helping our Ukrainian brothers and sisters in need. Please make an urgent donation to our Ukraine Crisis Response today.
