Moravian Disaster Response to the Ukrainian Crisis

The Board of World Mission invites your compassion and prayers for the people of Ukraine who are suffering because of the Russian invasion. The Czech Republic is among the countries receiving Ukrainian refugees, where our Moravian friends in the Czech Province are already providing hospitality. The Board of World Mission is humbled to be able to help collect funds to assist with Ukrainian refugee resettlement in Europe.
The Moravian congregation in Nová Paka is a wonderful example of the type of work happening throughout the Czech Province to support Ukrainian refugees. This congregation has owned a historic hotel since 2015, which is now functioning as living space for the first families that arrived from Kyiv last week. More families are expected to arrive this week. Jiřina Kaletová, a member of this congregation, shared the following video with us. It’s wonderful to hear directly from our Czech friends about the work taking place. Please watch and share widely.
