Your kind donations are helping some of the 12 million Ukrainians who have fled their homes since the war began in February. We’d like to introduce you to a few of them.
Nataliia was in the middle of cancer treatment when the war started. She fled her home and is now staying in the West of Ukraine. But, when she fled, she had to leave her Bible behind. Receiving a new copy was ‘the best gift’ she said.
Yurii lived in a village close to the town of Makariv. He and his family have fled to the West of Ukraine. He used to listen to an audio version of the Bible, so told the Bible Society team that it was ‘a great joy’ to receive a copy of the Bible.
Maia fled heavily-bombarded Donetsk and is now also in western Ukraine. Here she has been welcomed and cared for by a local church, which has led to her coming to faith. So, it was hugely significant for her to receive her first ever copy of the Bible.
Olga became a Christian just seven years ago. Now, aged 87, she too has been forced from her home due to the fighting, and was not able to take her Bible with her because of the ‘extreme haste’ with which she had to flee. She was ‘very grateful’ for the gift of a New Testament recently.
All of these people received Bibles thanks to the support of people like you. It’s making a difference to all of them. Thank you.
