УПЦ США Розпочала Співпрацю із Організацією Welcome.us Задля Опіки Біженцями з України
The past 30 days have changed the world. Once the Russian Federation crossed the sovereign borders of Ukraine, an independent nation recognized as such by all nations of the world, it became abundantly clear that much assistance would be needed from all freedom loving people around the world.
The loss of human life and destruction of the infrastructure of major Ukrainian cities can only be defined not only as a crime against the peace-loving people of Ukraine, but against all humanity.
The Ukrainian Orthodox of the USA established the PRAY FOR UKRAINE - HELP UKRAINE Appeal. Together with parishes from across the country, the Church has helped people of various parts of Ukraine since the beginning of the war.
Earlier today, with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, Archbishop Daniel formally endorsed cooperation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA with the WELCOME.US - a new national initiative, which aims to build, inspire, mobilize, and empower Americans from all corners of the country to welcome and support people that suffer devastation, especially those seeking refuge in the United States of America.
Archbishop Daniel stated: “The UOC of the USA firmly believes that the United States of America can be a safe haven for Ukrainians during this time of war. It is for this reason, that the Church is excited to partner with Welcome.us to enable Americans to provide help and assistance to those in need. The hope is to build a true cooperation between the various entities in order to build a durable capacity and ability to welcome refugees from Ukraine to the US.
