Pastors Rachel & Zach from our Companion Synod in Hungary share a brief video update on the refugee situation in Hungary and Central Europe–and how the ELCA and Lutheran Church partners in Europe are responding to the situation.
Please continue to pray for our partner churches in the region—and the incredible work that they are doing to show God’s love and mercy to people in a great hour of need. Pray for all those in Central and Eastern Europe who are affected by this situation, and most of all, pray for a swift and merciful end to the violence.Pastors Zach and Rachel, Companion Synod in Hungary

How to Donate
Lutheran Disaster Response is accompanying our companions in Ukraine, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, as well as such ecumenical partners as Lutheran World Federation and Church World Service, in their humanitarian responses to the crisis. These partners provide refugees with immediate support and supplies such as food, blankets, water and hygiene kits.
Your gifts designated for “Eastern Europe Crisis Response” will be used entirely (100%) to provide support for people impacted by conflict in the region.
