Eurodiaconia deplores the aggression and conflict in Ukraine and calls for all national and international institutions to find a peaceful end to the war. Furthermore, Eurodiaconia calls on the international community and the European Institutions to quickly mobilize funds to prevent a large-scale humanitarian disaster.

The invasion of Ukraine on the 24 February has rocked Europe and the world to its core. It goes against all notions of fairness and justice and such violence is never a solution. Peaceful actions must be pursued to bring this conflict to an end as soon as possible by all those with influence.

Eurodiaconia brings together 55 members in 32 countries representing over 30 000 organisations across Europe including Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Founded in the Christian faith our network of churches and Christian organisations work across Europe to ensure that each person can live their life in dignity and with safety.
