Today, as many of us sit in the comfort of our own homes, a war rages in eastern Ukraine that has displaced over 10,000 people, many women and children. What is being done to help this refugee crisis playing out because of Russian aggression in the eastern provinces of Ukraine?
We take you to the front lines of organizations that providing for orphans, families at risk and many others who are fleeing the dangers of war in their home towns.
The Situations Is Dismal
The current atmosphere in eastern Ukraine is very volatile. The Ukrainian army is entrenched with Russian insurgents and many civilians are caught in the crossfire. Husbands are sending their wives and children to safer regions of Ukraine while they stay to defend their home. Those who cannot travel due to illness, age or choice are left hiding in their root cellars while grenades are launched into near by building and machine gun fire rages overhead. When they emerge from their shelters, their homes are badly damaged and they are left to pick up the pieces. Food is limited and safety is a very big concern even traveling to find supplies.
Hope in the Crisis
Thankfully, there are those who are working on ground to help those in the conflict region. One of our ministry partners, The Alliance for Ukraine Without Orphans (UWO), has been working around the clock to serve foster families and orphans in the conflict regions. Despite the chaos of war, help is available to those who need it, and supported through generous donations and prayer from those around the world.
Reports from the Front Lines
Thanks to our donors GENEROUS donations, $5000.00 was sent to Ukraine to help with the immediate refugee crisis needs. This is a result of your seed sowing – children and families are SAFE today because of you! Thank you!

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
We leave you with these images of a private Christian orphanage “Sails of Hope” in Slavayansk, Ukraine where the fighting has been the heaviest. Ukraine Orphan Outreach has walked the halls of this orphanage and seen the good work they are doing in these children. Thankfully, the kids were all evacuated before the bombing occurred. Please pray for Brother Peter and all of the children from this orphanage!
