Crates for Ukraine 3.0: Calling All Churches, Youth Groups, and Galvanizers (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Sep 12, 2023

It’s been just over a year and a half since the Russian invasion that launched the war in Ukraine. The Church has responded generously by giving materially, financially, and spiritually. You responded to Crates for Ukraine, the first and second iterations, by over 62 tons of aid, valued at over $3 million. All of those crates pass through the Lviv aid warehouse, where it is unpacked and sorted by a team from the local church. The crates are then sent to the greatest areas of needs on the front lines.

The MTW Ukraine crisis team is getting more requests for medical kits, tourniquets, vitamins, and winter wear right now than any other time in the war. We saw a generous response to the second Crates for Ukraine effort, but that aid is running out. Because of that, this fall, MTW Ukraine is launching Crates for Ukraine 3.0.

We're calling on all churches, youth groups, and anyone who can galvanize a group to help in this effort. In this third iteration, you’ll see prescribed lists for three types of crates. You simply buy what's on the list, pack it in the crate, drop it off locally, and then the crisis team will get it to Ukraine and match it with the greatest needs.

Thank you for your amazing efforts in providing vital and significant aid to the Ukrainian people. We ask that you please pray and give and spread the word so that we might continue to give aid to those who are in their darkest hour. Please consider sharing this video with your community.

The story of MTW Ukraine is a story of how Christ continues to build His Church through many successes and setbacks.


Please pray for the Crates for Ukraine 3.0 effort, and for the med kits, tourniquets, vitamins, winter wear, and other critical supplies to meet the physical needs of Ukrainians in the areas that need it most.

Pray against rape, murder, and capture of men, women, and children in Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine. Pray for protection for the vulnerable.

Give thanks for and pray for the Krakow crisis team, the distribution of aid, and the shelter ministry as the team cares for displaced Ukrainians.

Pray for courage for Christ’s followers in and around Ukraine.

Pray for families who have evacuated, leaving behind the only place they have ever known. Pray for transition and provision. 

Pray for pastors who have stayed behind in Ukraine as they minister to their congregations and the surrounding communities in a time of war.

Pray for the health, rest, and ability to continue for those who are working with and making arrangements for refugees. It can feel like the future of each one of them is in your hands.

Pray that our brothers and sisters who have lost everything will cling to the community of believers and ultimate hope in Christ, and for the massive movement of people and the refugee work our teams are involved in focusing on Lviv and Krakow.

Pray for Ukraine to trust what is not changeable and to hope in what cannot be lost. May the Church in Ukraine be strengthened through this war.

Pray for Ukrainian refugees who are being welcomed by the church in Belgorod to be drawn to Christ.
