Ukraine - would you like to help?!

Ukraine - would you like to help?!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEWS IN...

A NEW OPPORTUNITY has arisen to help a family of 6 Ukrainians, currently trapped in Europe en route to find refuge in UK.

Details and to donate click here

(If donating, please note you do not have to add extra to your gift for GoFundMe - select "Other Amount" and type 0 in the box - thank you!)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

There are ways we can all help with the desperate situation unfolding in Ukraine, not least by prayer. Even better if we can join up our thinking and efforts. Please let me know if you think you could offer practical support with any of the following…

You can simply give, from your own purse or through a fundriasing effort. There are various agencies doing good work. One that is especially receommended is The Disaster Emergency Committee fund: https://www.dec.org.uk/

Local people are doing what they can. In Flordon, people have collected goods for local collection points. Others in Mulbarton are planning to fill their vans with local donations and drive to the Ukrainian border to offer support. Others are thining about fundraising events to raise money for the DEC appeal. Look out for fundraising events at the Village Hall and news of local collection points.

A big development this week has been the new government scheme, to open UK homes to Ukrainian refugees: https://homesforukraine.campaign.gov.uk/

Please do consider if you can help with the housing effort, should we have applicants directed this way…

 


Peter and Cathy invite support for helping with homing and supporting refugees here…

All of us, I'm sure, are appalled, saddened, grief-stricken and many other emotions about the situation in Ukraine and the plight of 2.8 million (and rising) refugees. And I'd guess most of us are wondering what we can do to help.

On Monday, the government announced its Homes for Ukraine scheme, which will provide accommodation for an unlimited number of refugees who want to come to the UK. Ukrainians will be applying to come from Saturday, and expect to stay somewhere for at least 6 months.

As some of you know, our home in Hethel is in two parts, with a self-contained cottage next door that people we know use for retreats and other breaks. It is hardly booked at the moment and we feel we should offer it into the scheme. Others in our churches may have accommodation or spare rooms that they also are thinking of offering.

For some years, Cathy and I have been involved with the People from Abroad Team (PfAT) in the city, working with two Syrian refugee families and we are full of admiration for the wrap-around support that the team provides. For a start, registering individuals with a GP and any other specialist medical help they may need, enrolling children into schools, connecting people with the benefits system and probably opening a bank account for them, and then the ongoing provision of English learning opportunities. Needless to say, people living in any of our villages will need help with transport too and day-to-day support as questions and needs arise. Quite a list, multiplied in its complexity by the fact that these friends from overseas are certain to be deeply traumatised by their experiences.

This is a big commitment and, although the government has made a broad statement about support from local authorities, for understandable reasons there is little detail at the moment. Our thinking is that a small team of people from across the benefice would make the support task more manageable, for us and for anyone else thinking of offering accommodation. Having a team also makes it possible for more from our churches to be involved if they so wish.

Anyway, although this is completely nebulous at the moment, I thought I'd wave a flag and invite anyone who would like to offer some help to get in touch. I can't see this programme happening instantly and, to be honest, we can't know whether any offer we (or you) make will be taken up: there has already been a huge response - 25000 offers in the first three hours of the website going live. But we feel led to making the offer.

After all, Jesus made clear that when we welcome the stranger, we welcome him (Matthew 25.31-40). And vice versa.
