Started on the front lines of the conflict between Russian-backed rebels and Ukrainian forces in the south-east of the country, our more than 200 national pioneers share daily dangers with local churches and charities.

They help people suffering the trauma from years of conflict, dodging snipers and mines, the bitter winter cold and simmering heat of summer, often spent below ground huddled in dank cellars with the local populace. Their support has seen children and families displaced by war united once again and living with Hope rather than despair. Our experience of working in conflict areas helps us in our new project recently established in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave bordering Armenia.
