World Renew, HDC’s denominational and global ministry partner, is a member of the Integral Alliance; through fellow members with on-ground partners in the Ukrainian region, World Renew is working to respond to the emergency needs of vulnerable families impacted by this crisis. This response includes the distribution of temporary shelter support, emergency non-food items, and health support in the country and the surrounding region.
World Renew’s fellow members in Slovakia have partnerships with churches, community centers, and local partners in neighboring countries. They are responding in the following ways:
- Temporary Shelter Support: To host a person coming across the border. Early rapid reports show that 98% of people that have initially fled have contacts across Europe, but they are preparing to support the long-term need as the response/need changes.
- Emergency Non-Food Items Support: They are also working on sending a container of non-food items to support refugees in the neighboring borders. This includes blankets, linens, mattresses, and basic sanitary/hygiene items.
- Emergency Food Assistance
- Emergency Health Support: They are providing essential health packs to the emergency for refugees being received in neighboring countries, supporting health centers.
