SILVER SPRING, MD (February 24, 2023)
“Today is a somber anniversary at the end of a dark year, and we are praying for all those who have been affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
We pray for those who have been separated from the people they love and the lives they know. We pray for those who have sought safety in bomb shelters and across foreign borders. We pray for those who have lost their homes and their sense of safety. We pray for those who hurt and those who serve.
We pray for peace.
Even as we pray for the end of this conflict, ADRA reaffirms its commitment to the people affected by it. More than 8 million people have been forced to flee Ukraine in the last 12 months, and another 18 million require humanitarian assistance within the country. Our dedicated staff in Ukraine and across Europe have been providing urgent support since the earliest days of this crisis, and we are grateful for the partners, donors, and supporters who have helped make it possible to continue serving.”
