Jesuit Mission Australia will host a webinar tomorrow detailing the emergency response of its Jesuit partners in Europe to the war in Ukraine.
Jesuit Mission Australia has supported the Jesuits in Europe in responding to the crisis in Ukraine, uplifting vulnerable individuals and families fleeing the atrocities occurring in their home country.
The Ukraine Emergency Response webinar will be held at 6pm AEST.
Fr Alberto Ares SJ, regional director of Jesuit Refugee Service Europe, and Fr Marius Talos SJ, director of Jesuit Refugee Service Romania, will provide an update on the Jesuits’ emergency response on the ground.
Thanks to a partnership between Jesuit Mission and Jesuit Refugee Service Europe, vulnerable communities fleeing the Ukraine are being provided with emergency shelter, food and essential items, medical escorts, translation and accompaniment.
JRS Europe has been coordinating the emergency response by mobilising support from offices across Hungary, Poland, Romania, Macedonia, south-east Europe as well as within Ukraine.
“I am grateful to hear of the swift and effective response from our Jesuit partners. Together we must continue to bring hope to the people that are most affected by this tragedy,” said Jesuit Mission chief executive Helen Forde.
