❗️CALL TO ACTION – PEOPLE OF UKRAINE NEED YOUR HELP❗️

Stand With Ukraine


On February 24th Russia viciously, in a premeditated and unprovoked act of aggression, invaded Ukraine. Thousands have been killed, millions have been displaced. If you would like to help, our church is accepting humanitarian aid packages for Ukraine – we accept, pack and send items every day: Monday to Saturday 5-8 pm, and Sunday 12-2 pm.
You can also make a monetary donation for humanitarian aid for Ukraine. Details on different methods are at the bottom of this page – we accept donations through CanadaHelps.org, e-Transfers, cash or cheque dropped off at the church.
All packages will be delivered into Lviv and dispersed to relevant Ukrainian relief organizations.

📦 At this time we accept the following priority items for Ukraine:

  • Dry food; canned food
  • Medical Supplies:
    • Tourniquets (CAT GEN 7 (GEN 6), SOFT, SAM)
    • Halo Chest Seal and analogues
    • QuickClot Combat gauze and analogues
    • Burnshield Hydrogel (tube, spray, packet, dressing) and analogues
