Story

The Salvation Army has programmes and personnel in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Romania, Moldova and other European countries who were able to offer practical assistance as soon as the violence escalated.

Some rushed to the border of Ukraine to hand out urgent provisions, while others made arrangements to offer support to Ukraines people seeking shelter in their country.

In particular, The Salvations Armys response includes:

Romania has formed an emergency team, filled the car with essential items and travelled to the border to offer support.

Moldova will provide free assistance to Ukraines displaced people, including temporary accommodation, hot meals and drinks, access to Wi-Fi and other necessary items.

Poland is preparing relief parcels for Ukrainian people coming into the country.

Slovakia is preparing to offer accommodation, food and drink, and emotional support.

The Czech Republic is already home to some 200,000 Ukrainians and anticipates many more of them will seek help from family and friends already in the country. The Salvation Army in Czech Republic has available capacity in residential centres, so they stand ready to provide support.

Our services across the countries include, but are not limited to, providing:

Food and water

Medication

Overnight shelter

Translation services

Food vouchers

Transport to other countries

Emotional support

Wi-Fi and SIM cards

Travel guidance

Clothing and blankets

The Salvation Army in Ukraine reports that officers are sleeping in shelters alongside the communities they serve, but doing their best to offer hope and support.
