Testimony: Christian Couple Helps Ukrainian Refugees
As Christians, we are called to bring justice and help those in need. Kirk and Violeta Nowery are doing that now in Ukraine.
From CBN News. An American couple is heading to Ukraine’s border for the fourth time to help rescue women and children, provide food and shelter, and share the gospel message of hope.
Kirk and Violeta Nowery of Hope Partners International have dedicated their lives to helping impoverished people worldwide. With 10 “Hope Centers” across the globe, they’re able to provide safety and necessities for people in need.
Since the war in Ukraine began, the non-profit has helped nearly 11,000 men, women, and children cross the border to Romania.
The Nowery’s also arrange daring rescue missions with pastors driving vans into war zones to save refugees and bring them to safety….
As Russia continues its land grab in Eastern Ukraine, the refugee crisis inches toward unprecedented numbers. More than 14 million people have been displaced from their homes since Russia invaded Ukraine.
Seven million have fled the country altogether – many escaping with only a suitcase….
One refugee named Oksana shared her gratitude toward the Nowery’s after escaping with her life….
Hope Partners International is raising money for another rescue van, which doubles as a transport for food and supplies to give to people still in Ukraine.
“We send three vans each week with food, water, and medical supplies and take them to a town called Ishmael,” Kirk explained. “And Christians on the other side bring their vans and offload their supplies.”
Those vans are then loaded up with refugees fleeing the war….
