We sent almost immediately emergency financial assistance to two our partners: Father´s House, which takes care of orphaned children, and House of Mercy, which supports vulnerable elderly homeless people in Kiev.
Our partner organizations in Ukraine need assistance to ensure safety for their clients and to support people who are affected by the conflict.They are collecting medicines, durable food, sleeping bags and other necessities.
"Diaconia the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren is very close to Ukraine. We have long-term cooperation with our partner organizations that provide foster family care and help to homeless people" explains Erik Siegl, head of foreign projects at the Humanitarian Centre of Diaconia ECCB, and he is adding: "in the current situation, we would like to increase our support to these partners who also help people from conflictaffected areas to Kiev."
We unequivocally condemn the act of military aggression against Ukraine. We are in contact with our partners in Ukraine and we are monitoring ways how to help them and through them. We, as most of the people in the Czech Republic, have their situation at heart.
