Ukraine Appeal

The Bishops’ Conference of Scotland has called for the UK Government to provide ‘open sanctuary’ to Ukrainian families fleeing war matching the approach taken by other EU countries. In a statement they write:

“Together with Pope Francis, we fervently pray for an end to the conflict in Ukraine and for all those who have become victims of such senseless violence. We continue to be shocked at the horrific loss of life and destruction and appalled at the humanitarian catastrophe which is unfolding before us.

“While we welcome the steps taken by the UK Government to resettle Ukrainian refugees in the UK, we hope that open sanctuary will speedily be offered to them, giving them the right to live, work and remain here as happening in other countries.

“We urge our fellow citizens to give an open and generous welcome to those who seek refuge from the bloodshed and chaos in their nation, as we recall the words of St. Matthew ‘I was a stranger and you welcomed me’.

“We commend those who wish to offer homes or work to refugees and encourage everyone who can manage to give financial help while asking people to pray for those who are suffering so grievously.

 

“The Catholic Church has begun the process of identifying properties which may be suitable for Ukrainian refugees.

We encourage Scotland’s Catholics and all people of good will to open their arms to the refugees from Ukraine.”

Donations can be made to the SCIAF Ukraine Appeal which will go towards Caritas Internationalis’ response both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries: https://www.sciaf.org.uk/get.../appeals/741-ukraine-appeal

SCIAF has launched a special Ukraine appeal which will help people in need of emergency food, water, safe accommodation, hygiene kits, transport and child support services during this humanitarian catastrophe.

SCIAF is a member of Caritas Internationalis, the international Catholic humanitarian network, which is leading a global response to the conflict.  

Caritas Ukraine is supporting people displaced by the conflict inside Ukraine, and SCIAF’s sister agencies Caritas Poland, Caritas Moldova and Caritas Romania are supporting refugees who have managed to find safety in neighbouring countries. They are monitoring and assessing the situation continually, and providing essential humanitarian relief.

Donations will go towards the Caritas response both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries.

Alistair Dutton, Chief Executive of SCIAF, said:

“Within one week, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has driven hundreds of thousands of people from their homes. Now they are fleeing for their lives, desperately afraid and clueless as to what the future holds. As we watch the unfolding events in horror, we know that people want to help.

“This is an emergency appeal to help the people of Ukraine and we urge people here in Scotland to show their solidarity and give generously”.
