Ukraine at War – Update 11, 2024

Russia bombing Kharkiv and Region

Thousands of Ukrainian residents have been forced to flee their homes in the Kharkiv region amid days of heavy shelling and incremental advances by Russian forces.

HART ministry partners in Kharkiv are engaged in a relentless battle to save lives by evacuating people living in towns and villages in Russia’s path. Our volunteers are putting themselves in harm’s way, risking their lives to extract civilians from the very jaws of this conflict.

Recently, we received a desperate plea from one of our partners to help buy used vans to continue the emergency evacuations, as two of their vehicles were deemed irreparable.

But thanks to all of you in our HART Community, we immediately sent them funds for one vehicle (US 10,000). Supporting the ‘Ukraine Crisis MATCH’ will help us send funds for another van.

See the video below – and please continue to pray for Ukraine, for the soldiers on the front lines ready to lay their lives down for freedom and democracy, and also for the army of volunteers, including (HARTs), for their protection as they save lives and share God’s love with desperate, hurting people caught in the crosshairs of this conflict.

Any donations made to either of these programs will be matched up to $50,000 until May 31, 2024.

Help us resource churches in Ukraine to help those in need.

Help us send thousands of
kids to camps this summer.
