Through Compassion Services International (CSi) we have distributed approximately $200,000 in humanitarian aid to our churches in Ukraine. CSi also has partnered with another charitable organization to secure refugee housing in Poland. In addition, more than one hundred church members have been evacuated from war-torn portions of Ukraine thanks to CSi assistance.
