Support for the people of Ukraine

I expect that many of you have found yourself feeling helpless with the horrific situation in Ukraine, and asking how we can best help. As a church and individuals the following may be of some interest: 

Prayer:  We must continue to pray daily for the people and situation in Ukraine and Russia, and those in the surrounding countries offering immediate aid.

Action: The Home Office is working to launch a Humanitarian Sponsorship scheme that will be the main route for Ukrainian refugees to gain entry to the UK. The St Thomas à Becket has signed up to be a potential Community Sponsor for a refugee family; e.g. to meet them at the airport, befriend them, and help them access services and support as they settle in or near the parish (please note this is not to house families). You can sign up as individuals here https://sanctuaryfoundation.org.uk/

Giving: The Disasters Emergency Committee has launched the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. You can give to this appeal online using this link, https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal. The DEC brings together 15 leading aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis, when people in life-and-death situations need help. Their mission is to save, protect and rebuild lives through effective humanitarian response.
