Just before the war, Natalia suffered the loss of her husband and was left to care for her two teenage daughters on her own. When the war started, Natalia knew it would be difficult to keep her family safe in Kiev, but by the grace of God they have been able to stay safe. Their hope is to move away from Kiev in the near future, but for the time being they are in need of immediate assistance for food and mental health services for the girls, who are enduring the affects of PTSD.

Yevgenia is a sister who survived an intense bombing from her city of residence. She miraculously end up in a safe shelter; upon hearing from her neighbor that they need to find a shelter she right away gather her things together and ran, on her way she saw a Turkish citizens carrying their stuff she paused to help them. They in turn took her with them to find a safe place. After half an hour the bombing started and it continued for 4 days without ceasing, the place called Gostomel.
For 4 days all of them just sat in the basement facedown covering their heads with their hands with open mouth to prevent contusion. They ate only one time. When finally the bombing stopped and they were able to come out she saw many of her neighbors lifeless body lying around.
Her apartment building was one of the 4 buildings next to the military airfield which were totally ruined and reduced into rubbles.

Currently Yevgenia is in Warsaw. Before the war she's in the process of getting dental work. Now, in Poland she's trying to get her teeth to get restored, she found a Polish doctor that promised to help her but its not sure. Its all will depend on the price and resources that she can afford. Attached is her picture but she doesn't really feel comfortable to be seen with her current condition. Moreover, shes also having difficulties getting sleep. She constantly need someone to be with her even when she's taking a shower, somebody has to stand by the door for her to feel safe, this is normal considering what she's been through.

My name is Sveta Vozniuk, a disciple from Kiev Church of Christ. I was baptized in 1999. Currently, I and my two daughters; Diana -8 and Vika - 5 and my father who is 72 years old took refuge in Poland due to war in March 9 which without the help of other disciples from Kiev won't be possible. I am truly grateful to God and the disciples who are taking care of us. When we arrived to Warsaw after all the unfortunate events my dad started studying the Bible.

This is our sister Marina with her mother and her son. They are finally in Warsaw. Unfortunately, Marina and her son have Russian passports, and they do not qualify for refugee assistance in Poland.

Marina can get an assistant status for her disabled mom, which will will help her and her family to stay in Poland legally. Their plan is to go to Gdańsk and find an apartment and job.

We are humbly asking for your support to directly help disciples as they brave these terrible circumstances. Your support now, means more than ever.

The war that Russia launched against Ukraine in February has shaken the world. Our brothers and sisters in the region are suffering tremendously, not only in Ukraine but also in the neighboring countries. As our sister Tatiana explains in the video below, financial support is needed to help our brothers and sisters to escape war, to gain access to life-saving medications, and much more.

Hundreds of families are in need of help, and each has their own unique circumstances. Some are trying to relocate to avoid harm, some are trying to reunite with their children and family members, some are trying to buy insulin and others have had their bank accounts frozen.
