“Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!” – Psalm 31:2 (ESV)
Having obtained a permit from the Commissioner of Charities (COC) for fundraising, the Bible Society hopes to support the suffering peoples in Ukraine by providing humanitarian relief to meet their basic needs and to provide Scriptures in the hopes of giving encouragement in the midst of war—by reflecting the love of our Heavenly Father through His Word.
The entire Ukrainian nation of 43 million people is suffering from an unprecedented crisis caused by the violent war. As of May 2022, 7.7 million Ukrainians are internally displaced in Ukraine and 5.8 million people have been forced to flee since the invasion of Russia on 24 February. Many women and children were displaced and traumatised people have lost their relatives and friends. This war has created the greatest humanitarian crisis of this generation.
Rostyslav Stasyuk from the Ukrainian Bible Society (UBS) shared: “Colleagues from the Southern branch in Kherson, visited local bomb shelters with Scriptures and humanitarian aid to bring encouragement to people staying there. Our team also continues serving Kyiv.”
We hope to raise USD$200,000 in this campaign to help at least 2,000 families who have been directly affected by the military actions in Ukraine. The fund will be utilised for food, household essentials, first aid and medicine, clothes/blankets, accommodation and transport. We also hope to provide financial resources for the Ukrainian Bible Society to reach its goal of providing 56,000 Bibles to Ukrainians, as it received a staggering number of requests for Bibles.
Through this fundraising effort, the Bible Society works closely with Ukrainian Bible Society and World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) to bring comfort, peace and reconciliation to the Ukrainians. Join us by donating towards this worthy cause as we pray that Ukrainians continue to seek Christ as the One true source of hope, safety, truth and freedom. May God, through His eternal Word, have mercy and heal our land in this ever-changing times.
