Moravian Disaster Response to Ukraine – January 17, 2023 Update

Update from Hejnice, Czech Republic

One Moravian organization responding to the Ukraine Crisis is a Moravian high school in Hejnice, Czech Republic. Thanks in part to your generosity, they have increased their capacity in order to welcome Ukrainian students who recently joined their community as refugees. The video below is an update from one of their students; please take five minutes to listen to the story of how he left Ukraine and is adjusting to a new country, language, school, classmates, and culture.

How You Can Help:
