CHRIST Church Anglican Daylesford has launched an appeal to raise money to help those affected by the war in Ukraine.

Spokesperson Frank Page said the unfolding war in Ukraine, and especially the extreme suffering of the Ukrainian people, had shocked everyone.
“After one month more than 11 million people have been forced from their homes. At this distance we all feel helpless and struggle to know how we can help,” Mr Page said.
“The parish has reached out to the Anglican Diocese in Europe of which Ukraine is part and where there is an Anglican parish in Kyiv. Given the nature of the war the need for relief and support will be ongoing. Our Daylesford parish will conduct an ongoing appeal for Ukraine which will be channelled to the Anglican Diocese in Europe to support their appeal.”
Mr Page said the appeal was focused on three groups; the chaplaincies in the immediate border areas of Ukraine, in places like Poland and Hungary, working with individuals and families providing help, shelter, money and counselling.
“As we know from news reports large volumes of Ukrainian refugees are entering these countries. Chaplaincies further afield will also be supported as refugees head further west and this is in addition to large number of refugees from Africa, the Middle East and other places who were already in these countries. Thirdly they are working with projects in Ukraine in partnership with Caritas Internationalis and the Lutheran World Foundation.”
Mr Page said anyone could leave a donation at the church during services or donate to the church’s Ukraine Appeal account. Account name: Anglican Parish of Daylesford, BSB: 633 000, Account: 165242702, Reference: Ukraine Appeal.
