Supporting the Humanitarian Response to Crisis in Ukraine
Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD) is the compassionate response of The Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world. Founded as a response to people fleeing violence in World War II, ERD continues to hear God’s call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being by bringing together the generosity of Episcopalians and others with the needs of the world.
ERD is supporting Action by Churches Together (ACT Alliance) as it provides critical assistance to support people affected by violence in Ukraine. Working through ACT member Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA) and other local organizations, ACT Alliance is providing emergency assistance such as food, shelter, water and basic supplies to refugees and people displaced within Ukraine. ERD is also working with local faith-based organizations to prepare for immediate and long-term support for Ukrainian refugees in Poland, Romania, Hungary, and other parts of Europe.
