Love Beyond Conflict

Support Families Impacted by the Crisis in Ukraine.

The Salvation Army, an international movement, has a long-standing presence in Ukraine and neighboring countries. Because we are already part of the communities in which we serve, we are on the ground and ready to response and serve immediately in times of need such as this.

“Above all, love.”

— 1 PETER 4:8

In light of the ongoing crisis, The Salvation Army is providing hope, healing, and comfort to displaced and affected families and individuals. We are serving those impacted and displaced by the ongoing crisis with food, shelter, and spiritual care.

Where it is safe to serve, The Salvation Army officers have pivoted programs to provide food, clothes, blankets, and emotional and spiritual care to those who have been displaced from their homes and are seeking refuge.

Update: Feb 27, 2022


In various locations across Ukraine the Salvation Army is responding to the needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs) by providing urgently needed food and hygiene items.


The Salvation Army in Romania has formed an emergency team, filled the car with essential items and is on the way to the border to offer support to refugees seeking support in Romania. They will assess further needs on the ground.


The Salvation Army in Moldova provides free assistance to refugees from Ukraine including temporary accommodation, hot meals and drinks, access to Wi-Fi and other necessary items. The hotline phone number works 24/7: +373 767 04 007


The Salvation Army is currently preparing relief parcels for Ukrainian refugees coming into the country. Damaris and Matthew (IES) will travel there in a couple of days to work with the colleagues on the ground on a strategic plan for the response.


To date there are over 60,000 displaced people in the southern part of Russia. The Salvation Army responds to their needs by providing food, hygiene and other relief items.


Major Joseph Knoflicek, the DC will be travelling with a colleague to a town 50 km’s from the Ukraine border to access the situation. A plan of action in preparation for accommodation, material needs and emotional support has been formulated. An emergency response team consisting of representatives from Slovakia and Czech Republic has commenced and will meet together on a regular basis.


Czech Republic is already home to some 200,000 Ukrainians and therefore anticipates many refugees who will seek support from family and friends in Czech Republic. The Salvation Army has available capacity in the existing social services in Czech Republic so they stand ready to provide support without impacting on the existing client base.

We are aware that The Salvation Army in other European countries are also planning to respond to the needs of refugees arriving there and are grateful for the amazing solidarity and willingness to support.
