The Churches Mission for Ukrainian Refugees
Article for Providence Magazine, written by Trudy and Russell Chun

     We thought we were living in a better world, where international agencies promised diplomatic solutions to the globe’s greatest conflicts. Foreign Policy, assured us in 2011 that “World peace is closer than you think.” The analysis pointed out, “The last decade has seen fewer war deaths than any decade in the past 100 years.” In 2017, Modern Diplomacy, went so far as to publish an analysis that argued “war is obsolete.”  A study published in Science Daily in 2020 empirically proved that the world had become less violent in the past three decades. “The change for the better our analysis detected over the past 30 years may be due to peace keeping work by global organisations like the UN and increased collaboration and cooperation between nations.”

Then on February 24, 2022, everything changed.

March:
A 11-Year-Old Boy From Zaporizhia.

     An 11-year-old boy from Zaporizhia came to Slovakia across the border from Ukraine.  With one plastic bag, a passport and a telephone number written on his hand, he came alone, as his parents had to stay in Ukraine.

       Volunteers took care of him, brought him warm and provided him with food and drink, which they packed for the next trip. He won them all with his smile, fearlessness and determination, worthy of a real hero.

     Thanks to the numbers on his hand and a piece of paper in his waist, he managed to connect with loved ones who did not come for him and the whole story ended well
