On June 6th a massive explosion destroved the Kakhovka Dam in Ukraine unleashing a flood that has devastated thousands of lives (click here).
The dam was under the control of the Russian military, which had seized it in the early days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The consequences of the flood have been grave and far-reaching. People have lost their livelihoods, many are homeless and huge environmental damage poses a threat to human and animals alike.
Agricultural damage has left people hungry and many are now reliant on aid.
BACA is supporting the work of Pastor Vasilev in Ukraine since the outset of the Russian attack and we call for your support so that we can continue this work.
Pastor Vasilev has prepared an appeal video for us to share with you. His work includes running three church services a week in Odessa, a large food bank and free Bible service, and witnessing on the streets. he is also now expanded his operation to food distribution in Kherson one of the most attacked cities in Ukraine and one that has been severely affected by the recent floods.
Pastor Vasilev has prepared a video for you to help understand the dire need for aid in Ukraine:
We are hoping to reach at least 50 people a month with the help of your donations, who will be provided with food, clothes, toiletries and Bibles. All of those we support will be provided with prayer opportunities and Pastor Vasilev will continue to hold services and witness events in the streets of Ukraine.
