Congregational Services for Refugees

For many days now we are living through an awful time. The war waged by the Russian Army against Ukraine has shaken us to the core.

In our thoughts, we are with the people that are in Ukraine, that are fighting for their country or that had to leave their homeland.

Many members and friends of our congregation are worrying about the loved ones in Ukraine, who have lost their homes, are without heating and hot water, who are sleeping in their basement or in subway stations, who lack food, medication and everything else needed for their livelihood. They are worried for their children and at the same time bravely defending their country Ukraine. Many women and children are seeking refuge.

Some of our members are providing shelter for their relatives from Ukraine. Others are sending support to Ukraine like medication, money and other supplies urgently in need.

We help where we can.

But we are also proud of our relatives and friends in Russia who are risking everything to protest against the war. We support them as well, financially and with important information that otherwise is kept secret and banned in Russia.

Since many of our members have originally come from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia, we are able to offer various kinds of help to all refugees from Ukraine, e.g.

  • as translators,
  • supporting with school enrollment for children,
  • as company for government agency appointments,
  • as support during life situations in Germany,
  • as support with all questions of settling into German society.

Additionally, we can offer transport from the Polish border.
