Ukraine Crisis

Send Relief is bringing help and hope to displaced families in Eastern Europe during the Russia-Ukraine war.

$

Overview

After nearly a decade of conflict, Russia officially launched its invasion of Ukraine this year, moving tanks and troops into the Western territories.

The war has already displaced 13.6 million Ukrainians, causing a catastrophic humanitarian crisis.

Send Relief is working with local Baptist partners and churches in Ukraine, Poland and twelve other nearby nations to respond to the growing emergency. More than half a million survivors have been served by Send Relief projects in Eastern Europe, and we can connect your church with even more opportunities to pray and support relief efforts!

Your gifts provide for the greatest needs of families fleeing the country; emergency food supplies, shelter, transportation, medical care, hygiene kits and, most importantly, gospel hope!


Ways Your Church Can Serve

While America will be receiving over 100,000 Ukrainian refugees, the relocation process to the United States can be complicated. You or your church must have an existing relationship with a Ukrainian family in order to sponsor their resettlement. If you don’t have a relationship with a refugee family, here are a few alternative ways to help:

Sponsor Interest List
Those interested in sponsorship who do not currently have a relationship with a Ukrainian refugee can request to be placed on the Sponsor Interest List. If Send Relief becomes aware of sponsorship opportunities, those on the list will be notified.

Training
From resettlement team training to one-on-one coaching, Send Relief can help prepare churches and ministry teams to welcome our new Ukrainian neighbors. The training will cover how to serve and meet practical needs while being sensitive to other cultures and contexts, as well as what discipleship and evangelism strategies are most appropriate for the situation.

Grants & Resources
Based on circumstance and need, grants and resources are available to sponsors and ministries serving Ukrainians who are relocated to the United States.

Job Placement
Using local and national partnerships, Send Relief can help Ukrainians who have been authorized to work find employment while they are in the United States.
