Working in partnership with local church leaders, SGA has helped fund a humanitarian aid programme that supplies those in need with heaters, thermal clothing and high protein food packages. Reports have outlined the value of this ministry and how God has used it to relieve physical hardship and also bring about spiritual blessing.
Having heard of what God has been doing through this project, Moira Baptist Sunday School leaders decided to encourage support for this ministry. Just before Christmas they gave each member of the Sunday School specially adapted socks and encouraged the children to use them to save for others in Ukraine. The children enthusiastically went about their task, and over the following months the fund steadily grew.
SGA’s General Director Derek Maxwell had the joy of participating in their Children’s Day service in which a cheque for £2,500 was presented to him. Following the service, donations have continued to come in and that total has increased. We praise God that such an initiative will make a tangible difference to the lives of men, women and children in East Ukraine this winter.
