Last month WCN returned from a disaster assessment trip to the Ukraine. During that trip Greg Rauen, WCN Executive Director met with pastors who had been housing and feeding refugees from the war torn eastern regions of the Ukraine. WCN and New Life Christian Church & World Outreach provided resources to purchase food to help these Ukrainian churches feed starving people. Thousands of people are homeless without food or income.
As follow up to that initial trip, WCN is working to get 272,000 fortified rice meals into the Ukraine to feed more refugees. The meals will fill a 40 foot sea container! In February these meals will be donated by one of our partner organizations.
Despite the lack of reporting in the nightly news, no relief from the ongoing conflict is in sight. As you read this, elderly people in nursing homes are dying of starvation. Please join with us in prayer that more supporters and partners will come forward to help cover the significant cost of shipping and distributing these meals. Donations may be made online at our website or sent to our mailing address. God bless you for showing the love of Jesus to the suffering!
