The Salvation Army in Ukraine helps Internally Displaced People (IDPs) from the East of the country, offering spiritual support, advice and practical support – providing food kits and clothing.
The Integration Mission programme offers various activities to help internally displaced people (IDPs). This includes computer courses, English classes, medical help and consultations with lawyers, bank representatives and psychologists. Internally displaced people receive clothing, food, utensils, bedding, hygiene products, household appliances and books at five centres of The Salvation Army in Ukraine, located in Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Kyiv and Kropyvnytskyi.
The spiritual support provided by The Salvation Army IDP centres has helped many internally displaced people come to know the Saviour and His love.
Many of them attend worship, prayers and Bible classes, as well as recruiting classes where everyone can find answers to questions that concern them and open their hearts to the Lord. Some of the internally displaced people have even become soldiers, volunteers and parishioners of The Salvation Army. Internally displaced people have found The Salvation Army to be a place where they can make friends and discuss their problems. They are happy to open the doors of their homes to talk to Salvationists and volunteers.
