Ukraine Humanitarian Updates:
At Calvary Chapel, we unite with churches around the world as we join in prayer for peace and protection for those affected by hostilities. Should you feel led, there are links below that will allow you to offer assistance to frontline workers who are supporting refugees and help you to get involved in prayer for the Ukraine.
Ways that you can get involved:
1. Pray for peace. Please join us in praying for peace and an end to the invasion of Ukraine. We are also praying for the people of Ukraine and Russia who are impacted by this conflict.
2. Support relief efforts in Ukraine - Click HERE to support ERDO
ERDO (Emergency Relief and Development Overseas) is the humanitarian agency of The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada and is responding to the emergency relief needs they are aware of.
ERDO’s initial stage includes working in Ukraine through a network of local churches to provide 5,000 people in multiple locations with support. Internally displaced families and vulnerable community members will receive emergency packs containing food, medicine and household items like temporary shelters and hygiene supplies. ERDO is working with 100 local churches to distribute these supply packages and have focused efforts directly in Ukraine while the window for operating there is still open. ERDO is in the process of extending support to refugees in Poland in partnership with the Polish Pentecostal Churches, as well as partnering with them to deliver emergency supplies to the Ukrainian border to be distributed by churches of Pentecostal Union in Ukraine. ERDO is also exploring the possibility of expanding its support to refugees in Moldova and Slovakia through partnering with the churches of Pentecostal Union of Moldova and the Apostolic Church of Slovakia.
Thank you for reaching out to assist those in great need during this crisis.
3. Continued Generosity:
If you or your church are currently partnering with workers in Russia, we ask that you continue your support. The work you are a part of in Russia extends to church planting, children’s ministries, addiction treatment, and much more. Your global workers are called to serve the most vulnerable people in these communities. These needs will only increase should the economic situation worsen further.
