Church Ukraine Donations Top £100,000

Tuesday March 15 2022


Church of Scotland congregations have donated over £100,000 in less than two weeks to help a partner church’s work amongst refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.

The Church announced on March 2 that it would accept donations to be forwarded to Reformed Church in Hungary Aid (RCHA), which is working with the Reformed Church in Ukraine and in border areas of neighbouring countries.

The Rev Ian Alexander, Global Justice lead with the Church of Scotland’s Faith Action Team, said: “The opportunity to support the Reformed Church in Hungary Aid has been very positive. I understand there is about £110,000 which has come in from congregations. This is tremendously encouraging and gives not just money, but the knowledge that churches far away are both praying and offering tangible support for those fleeing and those able to help on the border.

“This will allow RCHA to keep supporting work with the churches in Transcarpathian Ukraine, and those welcoming refugees in the border areas of Slovakia, Hungary and Romania which all border Ukraine and have small Reformed Churches which can help with practicalities.”

The Reformed Church in Hungary has an English-language website giving updates on its work, here.

Donations to the RCHA can be made into the following account:
