Mission Highlight

Help Refugees Who Have Fled War-torn Ukraine 

Give through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA)

As the violence continues, the number of people being displaced and fleeing to neighboring countries increases by the day.  And in the midst of the chaos, there are sibling churches and ecumenical partners who are already providing assistance with basic items for survival.  The first priority of PDA is to provide funding to these partners on the ground.  While the scale of this crisis is new, receiving refugees from Ukraine and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe is not, which means PDA has trusted, established partners with the knowledge and expertise to carry out this important work. 

PDA is hearing that the reformed churches in Ukraine and the region are also feeling called to join in the humanitarian response. PDA, therefore, anticipates that our response will include both financial and technical assistance as the network of faith communities providing humanitarian assistance grows in the months ahead.  Funds are currently being used for emergency humanitarian aid such as food items, shelter, medicines, diapers, hygiene items, etc.
