The destruction caused by days of ongoing blasts in Ukraine has left people homeless, fleeing as refugees to other countries for shelter, or seeking safety in underground subways and hospital basements. There is a growing and urgent need for food and other basic aid. Through the Pontifical Mission Societies, you can support the priests, Religious Sisters and Brothers and lay pastoral leaders who are reaching out to those who are suffering and in need with concrete help, and with that help, offering HOPE.
As part of his Lent message, Pope Francis tells us, “In God, no act of love, no matter how small, and no ‘generous effort’ will ever be lost.” Pope Francis has encouraged help for the people of Ukraine. With your gift, you can answer that call.
Unfortunately, war is a tradition as old as time. While we may not ever see an end to war in our time here on Earth, there are ways to help those affected. In this moment, the Pope’s Mission Societies have established a Solidarity Fund for Ukraine. In all moments, you may assist priests, Religious Sisters and Brothers and lay pastoral leaders who provide help and hope to children and families in the Pope’s Missions, including for those who have been victims of war. Let us pray for the protection of all those currently falling victim to war.
