From Ukraine to Lebanon, Churches Pair Crisis Aid with Discipleship

Attacks targeting critical infrastructure will not stop “until Moscow runs out of missiles,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warns. Despite an additional $400 million in military support last week from the United States, Ukrainian officials say they still don’t have enough munition to keep Russia at bay.

At the same time, top NATO officials and foreign ministers gather in Romania to discuss Ukraine’s looming humanitarian crisis. “Many here face a grim choice: to flee or to freeze,” Norway’s foreign minister told reporters yesterday.

Russian missiles fell like snowflakes across Ukraine recently, crippling 50 percent of the national power grid. Last week, the World Health Organization regional director Hans Henri P. Kluge warned that the coming weeks could be “life-threatening for millions of Ukrainians.”

Executive Director Pierre Houssney says Horizons International is uniquely positioned to support local churches. More about that here.

“Ukraine is in a very, very tough spot. We have sent a team from Lebanon to be living long-term in Ukraine, so we’re doing what we can to help,” Houssney says.
