The invasion of Ukraine is costing precious lives and creating a humanitarian crisis as people flee to safety. The United Church has joined with partners who witness and work for peace and justice in the world, issuing a statement condemning the invasion of Ukraine. You can see the statement and other information here, including an invitation to write solidarity letters. You can make a donation to support United Church Mission & Service partners responding to rapidly changing needs. At this time there is no firm information on refugee sponsorship and we will offer updates as soon as we can. We add our prayers of concern and support for the people of Ukraine, and for their families and friends here and throughout the world.
