[VIDEO] A seminary turned Ukrainian refugee center

David works at a seminary in Lviv, Ukraine. However, the seminary is no longer a place of learning. Sleeping bags and mattresses have replaced desks, and classrooms are full of displaced families instead of students.

“Sometimes I don’t know what to do — to cry, to get angry, or to scream,” David said. “But I know I can’t give up. All we know is to wake up and help. Everyone is part of the solution.”

Will YOU be part of the solution and help meet critical needs, too? Just $35 is all it takes to provide a week’s worth of lifesaving aid for one displaced person in Ukraine or another high-conflict area.

Watch the video to see how David is helping families on the run:

When rumors of a Russian invasion began spreading, David and other workers at the seminary started preparing for the attack. They quickly gathered resources and offered help to their students and alumni.

But it soon became clear they needed to do more.

Thousands of people were running for their lives, so the seminary opened its doors to displaced families from all around the country. Now, it serves as a refugee center where families can eat, sleep, and shower before moving to the next transit point as they try to escape Ukraine.

“[Families] come all day and all night long,” David told our team. “We never know who or how many will show up.”

One thing is certain — the families who walk through their doors are exhausted and afraid. Many of them have watched bombs explode and seen their houses burn. They often need counseling after the horrors they’ve witnessed, which is why the seminary staff also take time to talk and pray with families as they work through their trauma.

In addition to providing temporary relief and shelter, David’s team also sends aid to other areas running low on supplies. Seminary students help by getting supplies off incoming trains and delivering them to churches where refugees are hiding. The team is also helping arrange passage to the border for people who need it.

This kind of work takes time, energy, and resources … and it can’t continue without your help.

Will you give today to become part of the solution and help men, women, and children survive this war?

Every $35 you give will provide a week’s worth of lifesaving aid for one displaced person in Ukraine or another high-conflict area.

Not only will your gift help deliver emergency supplies like food, clean water, warm clothing, blankets, and more, but it will also be a powerful display of God’s love to people who are fighting for their lives right now.

Like David, you can provide help and hope for people who have lost it all.
