MISSION WITHOUT BORDERS
"Bringing spiritual, emotional, educational & material aid to Eastern Europe"

UKRAINE

Annual Manager's Report

For the past 25 years, MWB Ukraine has worked hard to bring hope to the hopeless, and in this new year we will continue to support needy children, families, the elderly and refugees. We aim to provide all sorts of relief and help to the needy as well as emotional, educational and spiritual support. Our motto is "Reaching people for Christ" and it is weaved through all our programmes and projects. 

2018 Ukraine 2

Ukraine is going through a difficult period of its history at present. Ukraine's war-torn economy has been plunged into crisis following the EuroMaidan Revolution and the following conflict with neighbouring Russia. Last year's inflation reached 16.4%, and the 2018 forecast is 12%. Consumer prices, medicine and utility costs are constantly rising. The current political uncertainty adds to the overall difficult situation, stalling much-needed political and economic reforms.

In 2018 we plan to continue supporting 500 poor families and around 7000 children living in 50 state-run Homes. The administration of these Homes rely heavily on us to such items as food, hygiene, medicine, clothing, shoes, and school supplies.

2018 Ukraine 3

One of our greatest annual projects is providing Summer Camps for children from poor families. These camps have a tremendous impact on children's lives, from an emotional & physical & spiritual stand point. Thanks to our generous sponsors, we sent over 800 children to camp last year. Additionally, 520 children enjoyed various Day Camps carried out in some of our key communities.

The Mission's Training Center in Sarny continues to provide popular, government-approved courses in sewing, cooking and computers for 150 students from poor families. Now, they all receive a chance to get a job to earn their living and become self-sufficient.

It is worth mentioning that in 2017, the Mission in Ukraine alongside with local churches arranged for two relief trips with various materials for needy people in the conflict zone of eastern Ukraine. The delivery trucks contained food, furniture, clothing, mattresses, roofing materials and 2000 Operation Christmas Love parcels for needy families. All delivered items were distributed through our local partner churches in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

We are confident that with God's help and our generous supporters, we will continue doing good works in 2018. We'll continue with a strong focus on helping children in state-run Homes as well as supporting needy families. Please continue praying for Ukraine and for the Mission in Ukraine and may God richly bless you.
