WorldVenture has been serving for many years in Ukraine, Poland, and throughout Europe where Ukrainian Refugees have been displaced. Because of these long-standing, deep relationships, WorldVenture global workers and our ministry partners were ready to mobilize and meet the physical and spiritual needs of those impacted by Russia’s attack on Ukraine and they continue to do so each and every day. God is using your support to bring help and hope to countless lives.
The Need Continues Long After The News Media Leaves…
Before our very eyes and in the midst of chaos and war, millions of Ukrainians were displaced from a place they called home. Words can’t describe what our Ukrainian neighbors are experiencing. Violence and destruction. Families separated. Jobs lost. Homes and possessions left behind. For many Ukrainians today, the day-to-day reality is the difficult life of refugees trying to rebuild their lives uncertain when or if they will be able to return.
But as the world grappled with the shock of such aggression by the Russian government, WorldVenture was ready along with our network of partner ministries. Many followers of Jesus answered the call to pray and give to Ukraine Relief. And it made a difference then! But the need continues long after the news media leaves. WorldVenture and our colleagues are here for the long term. And we invite you to join us in providing relief and hope for the long term. This is part of what we mean when we say that we are engaging the world for gospel impact.

WorldVenture’s Relief Funds are called “Good Sam Funds”
Jesus paints a picture of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) that goes beyond our cultural definition of “good.” The acts of the Samaritan were courageous, compassionate, generous, and exemplified boundary-breaking solidarity with another. Jesus concludes the story by saying “go and do likewise.” What would our world look like if we acted with courage, compassion, generosity, and solidarity with those in need? WorldVenture’s relief funds fall under a special designation called “Good Sam Funds.” They are created to offer relief to those in immediate need when disaster strikes. Compelled by the love of God, we will love our neighbors as ourselves and offer help and hope to those in need. We will “go and do likewise.”
