See her story about escaping Kyiv and her hope to return one day, she says, "we had a good life in Kyiv".
When you give to Star of Hope, your gift will do much for the war victims:
1. Emergency goods shipments from our home base in Sweden to the heart of Ukraine.
Three trucks were driven and 10 more are planned. Driven to Ukraine's western border where the Star of Hope's Ukrainian partners is waiting. There, the emergency aid is moved on to several smaller vehicles and transported further into Ukraine and finally around the city of Kyiv. You will reach families in hiding and on the run. These trucks need to be refilled. Food has a high priority.
2. Support refugees at our child development centers in Romania.
Now three of our children's centers are turned into shelters. Half of each building is now a shelter, and the other half continues to be used for child development work. We concentrate on finding those refugees with a family member who has a disability since we have unique competence with that. We need help with daily costs.
3. Emergency transporting and support of refugees back to Sweden.
Refugees were transported to Sweden to be sheltered at the Star of Hope retreat.
These refugees are the same people we have been in contact with since they were affected by the Chernobyl disaster in the early 1990s. Now they are once again returning, this time with their families, to a place of safety. Thanks to our founder, Erik Gunnar Eriksson, we have many buildings available to provide them shelter. We need help with daily costs.
4. Staff continues to meet refugees at the border in Siret Romania. Our staff since day one is meeting refugees, giving love, praying, and sharing the gospel. The need here is food, small gifts for the children, fuel, and support staff.
Now we are committing ourselves to increase our help in Ukraine, but we need you.
The three points above are the plan in action and for future action.
We ask you to help us, the needs again are, support at the border house, feeding, and supporting families for an extended time. How long we do not know.
We need you to share this message with your company, church, friends, and family.
We thank God that Star of Hope is already there, ready to help.
Join us, and you too can help the children of Ukraine.
