Methodist Emergency Appeal for Ukraine

Rev Nicola is in contact with her colleagues in Ukraine. Oleg, the Methodist Superintendent in Kyiv, has set up a base in two Methodist churches in western Ukraine to help other refugees.

You can read his most recent message in the link below:

The above link also gives details of one way to donate to support the response to the crisis happening in Ukraine, and ensure that critical humanitarian assistance is available to those who need it. All We Can and the Methodist Church in Britain have launched an emergency appeal in response to the unfolding events.

Please pray for the people of Ukraine.
