Ukraine Emergency Response

Ukraine has been under attack since February 24th.  Since that time, ERDO has been active in monitoring the evolving situation, and is providing practical support through our partners. Currently we are responding with churches and organizations in Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Moldova and Romania. 

Here are some of the immediate needs for prayer and support:

ChildCARE Plus

ERDO’s ChildCARE Plus partners in Ukraine have been working to evacuate all the sponsored children along with orphaned children and children with disabilities. Many children have already been moved to neighbouring countries in western Europe through coordinated agreements and monitored transportation.

Some children, because they have family members or relatives in Ukraine, are now with family or guardians. A few children have been moved to other locations within Ukraine. A few children have not been moved because of health conditions that made it impossible, and some children are still waiting for final permission before they are moved to an excellent facility in a neighbouring country.

The government of Ukraine has arranged for all the children who have been sent outside of the country to be cared for properly. We have remained in contact with all of them and will be informed immediately of any needs they have.

Emergency Response

We are working through local churches to support 5,000 people in different areas of Ukraine. Internally displaced families and vulnerable community members are receiving emergency packs containing food, medicine, household items for temporary shelters and hygiene supplies.

100 local churches are distributing these supply packages. While there is a window open to work directly in Ukraine, we are focusing our efforts there.

In Poland we are working with a warehouse where they are gathering supplies and shipping them by truck into Ukraine. This warehouse has been providing supplies for 2,000 people each day, providing food, potable water, essential items and medical supplies. We are also helping to house some of the refugees who have come into Poland, providing them with food, essential supplies and medical assistance. 

In Slovakia, we are partnering with churches close to the border, helping them provide shelter, food and supplies to families crossing into Slovakia. Many people still inside of Ukraine are in refugee camps and shelters on the western side of the country. We are working with churches in Slovakia to bring supplies to these camps.

In Moldova and Romania we are working alongside the local churches and global workers to help feed, shelter and supply bedding, clothes and medicine to refugees and internally displaced people. 

As we continue responding alongside the church in several surrounding countries, please continue checking our website for updates.

Prayer

We believe in a God who changes hearts and can bring about the end to conflict and war.

Pray today for the safe evacuation of the children. Pray for vulnerable or displaced families, and those who have been injured. Pray for pastors and churches caught in the middle of active fighting while they minister to their communities.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and your support for families and children in Ukraine.
