Mission Without Borders has partnered with Volodymyr’s church for many years, long before Russia’s full-scale invasion last year.
MWB has worked together with the church to support people living in poverty in eastern Ukraine, where conflict had been ongoing since 2014.
From the first days of war last year, when missiles rained down all over Ukraine, trucks of food and other necessities began to fill up throughout the western regions. Little springs from every town, village, and house gradually turned into a massive torrent of help.
The huge work of evacuating thousands of people also took place in those days. One of the powerful centres of collecting and delivering help became the church in Karpylivka village.
Pastor Volodymyr says, “We have always worked to reach people for Christ, and now, during the war, we do our best to help in the most effective way in the places where it’s needed the most."
It means so much that there are so many brave and devoted volunteers at Karpylivka church, who are also experienced and trustworthy. Together with our staff, they deliver help effectively.
MWB’s partnership with churches has always been a powerful tool for reaching people for Christ in Ukraine and throughout Eastern Europe.
The churches have an established place in the community, they know the local people and can provide Christian volunteers for our programmes – while MWB blesses the churches by sharing resources and providing support, this is all done to our faithful and generous supporters...none of this can happen without that support, thank you!
