As the war in Ukraine intensifies, SMSC centers are responding by caring for hundreds of pregnant women, nursing women, and mothers with young children. These families are fleeing the Donetsk area with almost nothing. Many make their way to Kharkov, a city only about 4 hours northwest of the fighting. UPDATE: We made our first donation to the center on 3/23/15, and pray you will help us to complete another donation of $1,000 or more in a week. Please do help! 100% of all funds donated go DIRECTLY to the center for immediate use with the refugees – no funds are retained by SMSC.
Our center partner has been serving refugee families with pregnant moms or infants and toddlers. At first they saw 30-40 a month, then 30-40 families a week, and now 15 – 30 families a day! Most refugees are passing through, heading for other locations – but they are hungry, frightened, and they believe the rest of the world has forgotten about them. But God has not forgotten them.
We have been asked by Lena Batina, the founder and executive director of the center located in Kharkov to help them help the refugees God is sending to them by raising funds for packages of basic necessities to give the families. 100% OF ALL FUNDS DONATED GO DIRECTLY TO THE UKRAINE!
Please help meet emergency needs and supply our SMSC-trained center as they deliver mercy, grace, and the gospel.
Help us help your sisters and brothers in Ukraine provide bread to eat, and the Bread of Life, for desperate refugees. Read more here….
