Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy has told all civilians living in the eastern Donetsk region to evacuate. He says the fewer civilians left in the area, the fewer the Russian attack can harm.

Eric Mock with the Slavic Gospel Association says, “There are about 100,000-200,000 people still in that region, living in their basements. So now they’re asking for people to leave as well as renewing efforts to liberate everything in the Kherson region. So there is still quite a bit of conflict going on.”

But Christians continue bravely serving their neighbors in this region. SGA partners have given out over 6 million meals since the war began.

Mock tells a story from one pastor named Andre. Andre helped take in a family of four that escaped the fighting. “They hid in their basements, living in their basement at night, trying to get out to find water. For several weeks, there was nothing to eat.”
