RESCUE UKRAINE-multi.jpg
MEET VIKTOR KROTYK

 

Viktor lives in Buzivka, in the Uman district of the Cherkazy region, a little over 150 km south of Kiev. He is the pastor of a Protestant Baptist church and the coordinator of the 'Uman Aid Center', a humanitarian aid association recognised by the Ukrainian authorities. The impact of this terrible war goes beyond what we can imagine and produces a real humanitarian disaster. Viktor and his teams, together with a network of Protestant churches and local authorities, welcome hundreds of displaced people who flee the combat zones. They are also receiving and distributing humanitarian aid to other parts of Ukraine.

WE WILL NOT STAND BY AND DO NOTHING !

Our first 'Rescue Ukraine' campaign took place in March 2022. Thanks to the generosity of many people in Belgium and generous supporters abroad, we were able to fill a humanitarian truck in 10 days. Viktor and his teams have already distributed everything and we are now ready for a second campaign. We will send another truck filled with goods in the beginning of May. Collection starts on Tuesday 19th April.
