Due to the substantial financial response to the Ukraine Crisis, SGA has been able to support churches offering vital help to refugees.
The following report is from, Cezary Komisarz, International Coordinator of Ukrainian Crisis for the Polish Free Evangelical Church denomination.
“I want to express my thankfulness for the help you have shown to Polish Churches in the current situation. Polish churches have been active in helping Ukrainian refugees since the war started.
We have transported people, food, clothes, and hygienic material. We organize accommodation for Ukrainian refugees in our church buildings and private homes. We started Christian Help Centres in our churches throughout Poland to assist with help and hope.
Over 2000 people are under the care of Polish local churches. Most of them are women and children. That is all possible due to your support.
Thank you for your financial support for our War Refugee Fund.“
“What support do we offer then?
Food, accommodation, medicine, adapting places for the refugees’ needs, transportation of people and goods, covering some major costs for local churches connected with their work with refugees.
We want to move in our work and step forward from help to hope. That means that we have started Ukrainian community centres in our church buildings, supporting Ukrainian leaders, counsellors, and pastors to serve refugees.
In the summertime we want to organize Ukrainian youth and children camps and day camps, to give the young people a new perspective. We pray and hope to do it as good as possible with your help.
16% of our Inhabitants are Ukrainian. More than 3 million of them are war refugees. Most of them need normal life. Most of them need HOPE. Most of them need Christ as their Saviour.”
