Guidelines for Spending Relief Money in Ukraine

1. It is important to keep a detailed record of what money is sent to whom and for what.


2. We have told people that our money will be spent in the following four ways as that is the basis on which we have been given it, they are:

a. Immediate relief for our churches and any benevolence that they can practically express.

b. Extraction of certain people, particularly the vulnerable, women, and children from the war zone areas.

c. Partner with certain humanitarian organisations where appropriate such as Humedica, Tearfund, Red Cross.

d. Help in the rebuilding, post-war, of the churches and their mission in Ukraine.


3. Practically:

a. Immediate relief for our churches and any benevolence that they can practically express.

i. Keeping the pastors of Vineyard Churches fed clothed and housed in the short term.

ii. Giving relief to the families of those associated with our Vineyard churches. This may include food and clothing and accommodation on a short-term basis.

iii. The expression of benevolence that can be expressed by our churches in their current locality and situation.

iv. Setting up temporary infrastructure to offer relief, such as office or warehouse accommodation and vehicle costs.

b. Extraction of certain people, particularly the vulnerable, women, and children from the war zone areas.

i. Priority is given to Vineyard people, but others considered on a case by case basis.

ii. Relief packages for refugees when fleeing the country (e.g., food for the journey).

iii. Medical needs as is appropriate.

c. Partner with certain humanitarian organisations where appropriate such as Humedica, Tearfund, Red Cross

i. These should be based on agreed plans and objectives, with clear conditions and objectives associated with the funds given.

d. Help in the rebuilding, post-war, of the churches and their mission in Ukraine

i. This is the largest imponderable and in reality, the hardest area to raise money for. Long after the drama of the war is over it will require hard work and planning and money to rebuild the churches and indeed the land.
