Kia ora e hoa mā,
As a Baptist whānau, we are part of the Baptist World Alliance, a collection of Baptist churches from all over the globe. Right now, we are collecting donations that we are funnelling directly to the Baptist World Alliance as they work with the Ukrainian Baptist Union (All-Ukrainian Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists Churches) and neighbouring countries.
These pastors and church leaders are creating centres of refuge for displaced peoples fleeing cities and towns in Ukraine; so far around 3 million people have left and there is only expected to be more. In the first week after the invasion, the 600+ Baptist churches in Ukraine were able to help, feed, and serve 45,000 people per day. There is critical need for us to continue to support and equip these leaders, as they create places of safety and shelter for vulnerable people- predominantly women and children.
Any donations you give will be used for bedding supplies, food, transportation costs, medical supplies, and any other things needed to equip the refuge centres. Thank you for partnering with us, as together we partner with God.
You can give via our donation page, or you can bank transfer to:
