The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada through its partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) calls on its members to respond through prayer and financial support to the urgent humanitarian needs in Ukraine.
The ELCIC and CLWR join with their partners, and people around the world, in calling for an immediate end to violence. As fighting intensifies, early estimates are that millions could be rapidly displaced, creating a widespread humanitarian crisis.
Partners in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries are closely monitoring the situation and preparing to respond with immediate humanitarian needs including food, shelter, emergency supplies and trauma support.
