APPEAL: Help Ukrainian Christians in their hour of need

Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes in Ukraine – mainly women, children and elderly. The UN warns that more than 4.5 million people could follow in the coming weeks. There are many thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters amongst them.

Please donate clothing, food and blankets to displaced Christians from Ukraine.

We need YOUR help 

1. Barnabas Fund is calling for donated goods for our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, specifically:

a. tinned food (that can be opened without a can opener), cup-a-soup packets and energy bars; 
b. blankets;
c. good quality winter clothes, particularly coats.

Will you and your church collect goods for Ukraine? We already have partner churches throughout the UK that can act as collection hubs (please click  here  to see a list). We will then arrange for the goods to be delivered to our Swindon warehouse. Alternatively, you can volunteer to drive the goods to Swindon.

2. Do you have a van/lorry that could transport the goods to the borders of Ukraine – Poland, Romania, Moldova? Would you consider volunteering to drive a van/lorry?

Please contact us on 01793 317778 or complete this  form .

3. Funds are still needed, particularly for heating the church halls and other buildings now housing refugees. Our partners in the region have told us of their soaring fuel bills. If you would like to make a financial donation, please click here.

APPEAL: Help Ukrainian Christians in their hour of need

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.
