A year after the invasion of Ukraine began, the people of Ukraine are still suffering the effects of war and millions remain homeless or displaced from their homes.

Millions of Ukrainian's have fled to the west and to countries such as Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. The Salesians have remained in Ukraine and surrounding countries, hosting refugees and looking after vulnerable young people. They also continue to support those who remain in Ukraine both spiritually and physically.

Families and  young people have received support with the necessities of life as well as support with their physical, emotional and spiritual welfare. Summer camps, feast day celebrations and Christmas festivities have all been important milestones in a year of uncertainty and turmoil for the young people of Ukraine. All of this has been possible thanks to your generosity but the war still goes on and so too must our appeal for support.  

We are in solidarity with our Salesian brothers in their work for the displaced and the vulnerable.

If you would like to contribute directly to this work please either:

1. Send a cheque to Mrs. N. Howell at the Salesian Provincial Office, Thornleigh House, Sharples Park, Bolton, Lancashire, BL1 6PQ clearly marked UKRAINE. All cheques should be made out to SDB Trustees. We will ensure the money is collected and sent asap to the Salesians there.

2. Make a donation through this special JustGiving account for the Salesians in Ukraine. 

If you are able to Gift Aid your donation this will significantly increase the amount of money we can send directly to those affected in the Ukraine.

Please also keep the Ukrainian people and our Salesian brothers, who are remaining with the people they serve, in your prayers.
