Why the Need For Relief Aid?

Ukraine and Moldova rank at the bottom of all social and economic indicators for European countries. The United Nations states that over 70% of its population lives in poverty. Unemployment, inflation, poverty and despair, inadequate health care, poor nutrition, and alcoholism are common throughout Eastern Europe.

WHY IS THIS? State bureaucrats and oligarchs have teamed up with corrupt politicians throughout 30 years of independence to perpetuate a graft-ridden, Soviet-style system. Lack of competition results in higher prices for food and commodities than surrounding rich European countries. Salaries are meager, and bribing is a way of life here. This corrupt system has kept millions of Ukrainians and Moldovans impoverished and prompted millions of others to flee to other countries seeking a better life.

Ukraine’s Refugee Crisis

On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation launched an unprovoked military attack on Ukraine – a peaceful, democratic country in the middle of Europe. Millions of Ukrainians have had their lives completely shattered. They have witnessed the destruction of their cities and towns, the sacrifice of thousands of young soldiers, families ripped apart, churches reduced to rubble, jobs vanished, and loved ones gone forever. More than thirteen million people, or nearly a third of Ukraine’s prewar population, have been displaced since the invasion.

How we work

All of HART’s relief aid programs and projects emanate from local churches. Our goal is to strengthen and empower indigenous churches to advance the gospel and impact the poor and needy in their own countries.

YOUR SUPPORT will help our local Church partners to administer relief to those in their communities through all of HART’s relief aid programs. This will help restore hope and dignity, encourage self-sufficiency, and provide families with practical assistance.
