Oxlip has been involved in Ukraine for over 25 years – church planting, pastoral training and sending of humanitarian aid in the form of food, clothing, medical supplies and fire fighting equipment. We partner with Hand in Hand Together, Minnesota Coalition for Eastern Europe, Bibles for Missions Thrift Store, Chaplain Ministries International and Life Rice, to meet a variety of humanitarian needs in Ukraine.
Congregational members and friends join together in packing meals, collecting supplies and loading containers. The containers are in turn sent to Kotzubinski (a suburb of Kyiv), Lv’v and Vinnstia, Ukraine, where supplies are delivered to regions throughout Ukraine under the direction of the Baptist Union and other local church groups.
There is also direct financial assistance sent to trusted ministry partners who in turn purchase needed supplies for distribution.
