All4Aid Community Centre, Lesvos, Greece!

Volunteering is a great way to not only express kindness to one another, but also to make a difference in the lives of others in need! Seeing a team of volunteers from Hill Country Bible Church hearts full of love and compassion as they served at our All4Aid Community Center on Lesvos, Greece, was really special! 

Every single day, women and children from the Mavrovouni camp come to use showers, laundry facilities, to choose clothes and hygiene items and, especially, to collect food items. Our amazing volunteers from Hill Country Bible Church supported our team in providing these services and helped to put smiles on people’s faces in the process. 

We deeply appreciate every member of this team for showing relentless effort and spreading joy and love. Your passion and helpful contributions definitely continue to inspire us!

New All4Aid Central Office in Frankfurt

After a period of testing last year, the All4Aid Central Office in Frankfurt has now officially moved to an office space within the building of the International Baptist Convention (IBC) in Frankfurt, Germany.

The IBC is a long-standing partner of All4Aid. They have been supporting our work from the very beginning with grants, volunteer mobilisation and prayers. We are very grateful that they made space for us and rented out an office that our growing team in Frankfurt can use. 

We will soon show you photos from inside our new office in Frankfurt, from where a lot of work is done in the background to support our refugee programmes in Greece, Cyprus and Romania.

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today we take a moment to celebrate women from all nations and backgrounds, but especially women and girls who are on the move due to war, persecution or disaster. Unfortunately, more often than not, they are the most affected by such crises. We consider it a privilege to work alongside these women and girls and to encourage them towards attaining life in all its fullness!
Today is also a great opportunity to appreciate our female donors and volunteers from all over the world for the continued prayer, encouragement and support. It is only through your prayers, giving and service that we are able to, not only meet the immediate needs of displaced women and girls, but also enjoy moments with them that are filled with beauty, joy and hope! Thank you!

Invasion of Ukraine – One Year On

As today marks one year since the invasion of Ukraine began, our hearts are heavy as the violence continues to impact the lives of countless people. The loss of life, displacement, and destruction of homes and communities is an ongoing tragedy that cannot be ignored.
At All4Aid, our vision is seeing displaced people attaining life in all its fullness and this is our hope for the people of Ukraine. We stand with Ukraine today as we hope for peace and seek justice. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ukraine today.

Responding to Food Insecurity on Lesvos, Greece

This is what our team on Lesvos sees through the car window in the mornings as they arrive to work: a long line of people, mostly women and children, waiting for our centre to open at 8:00 am so that they are able to take a shower, use our laundry room, get clothes and hygiene items and, especially, collect food items.
A combination of factors, such as bad policies, food price inflation and the closure of some NGOs has left refugees on Lesvos in an even more difficult position. We are stepping in to do even more to support them, as well as those in Cyprus, Romania and Ukraine who also face food insecurity. For this, we urgently need your help!
We have the huge challenge of raising a total of 1.5 million euros for our programmes in 2023. Half of this ambitious goal will be allocated to the direct purchase of food items for distribution. The remainder is for running the other programmes, such as housing for Ukrainian refugees, showers, laundry, hygiene items, clothing, activities, etc.
Please make a special donation now or set up monthly giving to All4Aid to help us respond to these needs!

New Community Centre in Bucharest, Romania

Following much work and preparation during the month of January, we would like to announce that All4Aid will start managing another community centre next month, this time in a central location in Bucharest, Romania, in order to better serve the Ukrainian displaced people.

We have been providing accommodation in Romania, as well as sending shipments of food into Ukraine, since the beginning of the war. The new All4Aid Community Centre, located on the ground floor of the building, will allow us to serve a larger number of people, through our centre’s hospitality / activities area, FoodBank (donation of food) and Shop (donation of clothes). 

On the top floors of the Centre, we have capacity to comfortably and safely house 50 people. We will also continue to operate the House of Grace in Bucharest, thus having a total capacity to accommodate a total of 73 Ukrainians guests in our houses in Bucharest.  

Beds are being assembled and kitchenettes are being installed by our All4Aid team in Romania as we type this post! New Ukrainian guests should be moving into the accommodation in the next few days when the centre is up and running! 

We are really grateful for your continued prayer, encouragement and financial support as we make this strategic move in Romania and continue to work towards our vision of displaced people attaining life in all its fullness!

At All4Aid, we want to take this moment to stand in solidarity with women around the world in calling for the end of all forms of gender-based violence.

Let’s all stand together with women today and everyday!

Food to Ukraine – Parts 12 to 14

Our managing director – Rodrigo Assis da Silva – continued to document his trip to Ukraine. Together with the All4Aid team in Romania, he delivered our shipment of food and hygiene items to our two church partners in the Odessa Oblast region, Ukraine. They also enjoy a time of fellowship over a meal with our Ukrainian partners, to catch up with them and hear more about the needs as the winter approaches.

The Russians have been focusing their attacks on Ukraine’s electricity and water infrastructure. The two churches and the neighbourhood around them are already without electricity. The food distribution programme, nonetheless, continues, even in the dark, in the cold and under the rain! Truly inspirational work!
Rodrigo and the team are now safe and outside Ukrainian territory! But they did experience a tense moment on the way back. They left as a convoy, with the All4Aid vehicles following each other. At the first roadblock they encountered, the Ukrainian military asked them to turn off the headlights and drive slowly in the pitch dark for some kilometres. The region was at risk of Russian drone strikes!
At All4Aid we work professionally and hard to minimise risks and make sure that, as we meet needs, the benefit and impact we produce outweighs the risks we take. But no trip to a war affected country can be made 100% safe. Please continue to pray for our All4Aid team in Romania, as they make this trip to Ukraine nearly every week!

* We have asked Rodrigo to document this trip for us in more detail. This post is the last of a series of behind-the-scenes posts that Rodrigo has shared with insights on how the work is done and the situation in Ukraine.
