Ukraine crisis: Moderator launches appeal

In response to the devastating Russian invasion of Ukraine and exodus of people from the country, Dr David Bruce, launched a Moderator’s Appeal today towards the emergency relief effort.

Continuing to encourage the Church to pray for the people of Ukraine, Dr Bruce also asked PCI members across Ireland to give generously to the Church’s partners involved in providing humanitarian aid to those fleeing the conflict and those trying to get aid into Ukraine.

Calling on PCI members to consider their response to this humanitarian emergency, the Moderator said, “I have launched a Moderator’s Appeal towards the emergency relief effort to help people in Ukraine and those fleeing the conflict. I am confident our members will respond as generously, and sacrificially, as they have done on so many previous occasions,” Dr Bruce said.

The Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI) is immediately releasing £60,000 (€72,350) to be distributed equally between its relief and development partners Christian Aid (Ireland) and Tearfund, and also to one of its partner churches, the Reformed Church in Hungary and its relief and development wing, Hungarian Reformed Church Aid.
