The invasion of Ukraine has created a humanitarian crisis. This devastating conflict has already displaced hundreds of thousands of people. The most urgent needs are for food, water and shelter.
To help respond quickly to the escalating situation, PWS&D is receiving donations for Ukraine. As a member of ACT Alliance and Canadian Foodgrains Bank, we are well placed to provide urgently needed food and non-food support.
Through the ACT Alliance, PWS&D is supporting Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA) as they respond to the ever-changing situation in Ukraine. Since the beginning of March, HIA has been responding to both Ukrainians who have fled the country into Hungary, as well as those displaced within Ukraine.
Refugees and displaced people are receiving cash assistance and emergency mental health and psychosocial support. In total, Hungarian Interchurch Aid will assist 14,000 households. PWS&D is helping them provide emergency food assistance and other essential non-food aid, including hygiene kits and medical supplies. HIA is also helping to restore emergency basic services in Ukraine, including sanitation and drinking water.
Canadian Foodgrains Bank members are also planning a response with urgently needed food assistance.
In Ukraine, The Presbyterian Church in Canada partners with the Transcarpathian Reformed Church. Read more here.
