Help Hope Live
Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February of 2021 showed just how fast things can change for people and how little time they have to make life-altering decisions and seek safety.
Without help, families and individuals can be left alone with no assistance when forced to flee their homes, be that because of war, or natural disasters.
The most vulnerable, often the poor and elderly, are at higher risk as they have few resources and contacts to offer aid, food, transport, and shelter in times of crisis.
Mission Without Borders has been in communities across Eastern Europe serving the poor and marginalized for over sixty years. And when it comes to a crisis, like the war in Ukraine, we are there to help those in need with immediate emergency aid and supplies when they need it most.
And when people need to flee their homes, Mission Without Borders staff is there to help, utilizing its network of social agencies and churches across multiple countries to help find safe transport and shelter.
We are there on the borders of Ukraine in Moldova and Romania offering much needed food, aid and support to those fleeing the war today, and we will continue to be there to help when the time comes for them to return home and start rebuilding.
Join Mission Without Borders' Hope in Crisis program today and be there for families and individuals across Eastern Europe when they need it most.
Mission Without Borders employs a three-phase strategy when dealing with a crisis.
The first phase is our Emergency Response. It is focused on large-scale, short-term interventions where we meet people where they are and deal with the most urgent needs such as food, water, transport, and personal safety.
The second phase is where we focus on creating Stability. This phase is more focused and smaller scale than the emergency response phase and involves closely working with families and elderly people in a more predictable way, over a longer period of time.
The stability phase recognizes that people may be displaced from their home and/or country for a long period and they will need assistance with finding interim solutions for housing, supplies, education, employment and other support.
The third phase of the strategy is the Rebuilding phase. The rebuilding phase involves working more intensely over time with a smaller group of people in a holistic fashion.
Two key elements that we focus on in this phase are the physical rebuilding of homes and infrastructure, and re-establishing families and elderly people affected by the crisis.
The work we focus on in the rebuilding phase follows the design of our core programs, all designed to help families build a sustainable future and creating opportunities for employment, growth and ongoing stability in the communities they live.
