Responding to the war in Ukraine

The invasion of Ukraine began four months ago today, on the morning of 24th February.

Our dioceses and parishes have been responding selflessly in many different ways since then to help people affected by the humanitarian crisis in and near Ukraine.
Please check out our photo gallery at this link (and below) for a selection of those stories – we know that there are many more so thank you for all of your generosity.

A collection of videos about responses from our members and our colleagues can also be viewed online here.  One example is Habitat for Humanity’s summary of how it has been working through 100 days of war, which was first shared earlier this month.
