Another Armenian Diaspora community is in peril. This time it is the long-standing Armenian community of Ukraine. The war in Ukraine has resulted in a humanitarian disaster and urgent aid is needed to help Armenian victims of this war. Many individuals and families from Ukraine have sought refuge in safe havens established on the borders of neighboring countries, such as Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania.
The Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) is actively assessing the situation and is ready to engage through its wide network within the Armenian Evangelical Fellowship of Europe. Mission partners in France and Bulgaria are on a fact-finding mission to assess the needs of the displaced people and provide critical assistance. Reports indicate that most of the refugees desire to move to Armenia. Emergency humanitarian support is needed as quickly as possible. The effort will be coordinated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia and our mission partners in Europe.
War is not the solution to disputes.
Please pray for an end to the war.
Please pray for the victims of the war.
“Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you”. 2 Corinthians 13:11
