Marek Charis ministers along with his wife, Zofia, and their family at the Church of Christ in Lublin, which is very close to the border with Ukraine.

Marek recently shared with the Fellowship of Churches of Christ about his church’s ongoing work among those fleeing the war in Ukraine.

“We run several refugee shelters in Lublin for over 200 people, many families also have mothers with children from Ukraine in their homes, we organise transport for refugees to places of permanent residence in other European countries.

“We also organised a warehouse and trans-shipment base from where we send huge trucks for help to Ukraine.  As of February 24, 2 million refugees from Ukraine have already entered Poland and most of them are still with us.  

“It is a huge logistic undertaking, but also the fruit of the open hearts and homes of all Poles, regardless of their world views.

“In Lublin, we operate together with three other churches, creating the Christians for Ukraine coalition, which gives us an additional opportunity to build the unity of the church in the city.”
