COVID-19 quarantine measures introduced in March 2020, have caused an increased need among the civilians living in conflict-affected eastern Ukraine.
People whose resources had already been depleted due to war, now lost their last jobs due to closure of mines and local small enterprises.
CBN -Emmanuel which has been monthly distributing an average of 500 to 1000 grocery sets on the front line for the last six years, has become an executive partner of Joyce Meyer Ministry in June 2020 having received financial support to procure 400 food packages for socially vulnerable groups living along the demarcation line in Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
“Our first partnership with Joyce Meyer Ministry took place back in 2015, – said Galina Kucher, CBN-Emmanuel’s Director of Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Projects. – We first met with the representatives of Joyce Meyer Ministry in Ukraine when they financed the purchase of Children’s Bibles for “Emerald City” Concert for orphans evacuated from 4 boarding schools in Donetsk region.
This time, seeing the additional burden to people living at war caused by COVID-19 quarantine didn’t allow Joyce Meyer ministry to stay indifferent. We are very grateful that we can help disadvantaged people together! ”
In addition to food, these vulnerable people will receive Christian books that are widely known on all continents.

In the late 1980s, Joyce Meyer developed a strong desire to help people. She and her husband began to save money to be able to help the poor. They started their ministry in their hometown St. Louis, which financially supported an organization that helped residents of poor neighborhoods and provided financial support to other Ministries.
Within the Joyce Meyer Ministry, the international mission “Hand of Hope” was founded. Its goal is to cover the basic needs of the afflicted population and to show God’s love to people with real deeds. Today, mercy and care for people from Joyce Mayer Ministry has reached eastern Ukraine!
