Emergency Appeal – Ukraine Refugees
Our partners in Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria are ready and desperate to support the thousands of Ukrainian refugees crossing the borders looking for safety. Can you help us by donating through our website?
We are all seeing the desperate stories in the news about families fleeing their homes, families being separated as some remain to fight, and families suffering devastating losses. We are glad to be able to offer an opportunity to help do something for our brothers and sisters in great need.
We still need help to provide:
- Transport for refugees to move from the border to safety
- Food for refugee families
- Helping local families open their homes to refugees
- Clothes, medicines and other basic needs
- Rent for accommodation
- Bedding to be used on church floors and conference centres
International Needs Slovakia and International Needs Romania have been part of the International Needs Network for over 25 years. Their ministries focus on church planting, schools ministries and working with Roma communities. They work through a network of pastors, churches, church planters and schools. Now in this time of crisis they are responding to the urgent needs of the thousands of refugees arriving in their countries.
We ask you to donate to this appeal to provide urgent support for these families. We will share news of our planned response over the coming weeks but wanted to share with you this opportunity to give as soon as possible. Around the IN Network, we have now raised more than US$500,000 to meet these most urgent needs, but the scale of the devastation means that we must build on our initial response.

Graham Kendrick Concert – The Highlights
We had the honour of being led by Graham Kendrick and band for a time of Thanksgiving, Hope and Vision. And what a night it was. As the first in-person event for a couple of years, due to the dreaded lockdown, we were particularly grateful for the opportunity to join together in worship and feel God’s presence.
2022 had its challenges; a few obvious examples being the pandemic and worryingly intensifying conditions around the world. But what we were so overwhelmed to see was an incredible outpouring of generosity for our projects – despite these challenges. All the uncertainty and fear brought about by the war in Ukraine and the consequent rise of living costs has been palpable; and yet, we were witness to a wave of compassionate giving. Whether that was the giving of our volunteers, individuals doing fundraisers or generosity from our IN family members and supporters. Many of you were a huge help with our emergency efforts to support Ukrainian refugees.
We continue to be AMAZED
Thank you to all of our supporters for giving to our Ukrainian Refugee Emergency Appeal. At the Graham Kendrick Concert we had made a bold target of raising £3,000 on the night, However, were completely overwhelmed by our audience who helped to raise exactly £4,701.31! Many donated not once but twice to help us get there and to release the full amount of match funding.
With £3,000 in matched funding, the total came to £7,701.31. We want to thank you again for your generosity!
We put together of few concert highlights for you…
