WAR ZONE 2014
Since war began in Eastern Ukraine, International Partnership churches have ferried food, blankets and medications to civilians caught in the horrific crossfire.
We initiated a Facebook volunteer movement called Wings of Generosity and Care. More than 3200 have joined to help the most vulnerable – the very young and the very old, stranded in the war zone. We have led over 150 teams of volunteers to bring help to these towns and villages still under artillery fire.
Material help is not all that we bring. We do our best to care for and encourage these beleaguered souls and to let them know that they are neither forgotten nor alone. When possible we go deeper and share the gospel of Christ, the only true Hope both for them and for us.
In Avdeevka, a city under constant shelling, we have established a relief center and are planting a church. Here, people come to get food, to get warm and to ask for prayer.
Partnering with other ministries in the war zone, our Avdeevka team is sending kids to safe summer camps and collaborating in community activities for youth and teachers.
