Ways we are serving in Ukraine
The mission of East-West is to mobilize the Body of Christ to evangelize the lost and equip local believers to multiply disciples and churches among the unreached. East-West desires to reach the unreached with the gospel even in the midst of war and temporal uncertainty. Because of this, they have partnered with national partners and partner churches in Ukraine and neighboring countries to identify and develop immediate ministry plans for aid relief and gospel ministry. Your gift will help fund this immediate response ministry plan to extend the love of Jesus in the midst of the Ukraine crisis.
The mission of Orphan Outreach is to restore hope for orphaned and vulnerable children so that every child will experience God’s love and know Jesus as Savior. Their Aging Out Program provides a safety net of support to young adults who have transitioned out of traditional orphan care. Orphans are already disadvantaged, and now the war in Ukraine makes it even more complicated. Orphan Outreach helps them navigate the complexities of life, including life in the midst of war. Their mission is to make sure these children continue to have the essentials they need. Your generosity goes toward meeting the immediate needs of the young adults they serve in Ukraine.
In response to the crisis in Ukraine, BWA leaders across various departments–– including BWAid, BWA Women, Integral Mission, and Global Partnerships––connected with Baptist leaders in Ukraine, Russia, and neighboring countries to express support and mobilize responses. Baptist churches in the westernmost region of Ukraine have established their buildings as “Centers of Hope” to provide food and shelter for the displaced. Hungarian Baptists have set up a humanitarian aid center from which they are distributing food and hygiene kits and providing basic medical care. Baptists in Poland are already welcoming refugees into their homes and churches as well as the Warsaw Baptist Theological Seminary. Your gift will help provide food and medical care for those in Ukraine and provide support to pastors in occupied territories.
