Ukraine Appeal Update

The extreme violence in Ukraine continues to be beyond words, as is the case for so many around the world who confront armed conflict in their communities.

 

Thanks to your generosity, the United Church community has raised $402,000 for humanitarian relief so far. Of that, $240,000 has been sent via the ACT Alliance. Spanning 127 countries, the Action by Churches Together (ACT) Alliance is the world’s largest network of Protestant and Orthodox churches and agencies, including the United Church. What are these funds supporting? Click here for details.

 

Your generosity through Mission & Service has long supported ACT’s humanitarian relief and advocacy efforts. Plans are being finalised for disbursement of $162,000 and funds that continue to come in. Please consider making a donation today. It’s never too late to be generous.
