A year after the Russian Invasion of Ukraine, a poll highlighted by the former archbishop of York shows that eight of every ten Christians are worried about the effect of the war.
The chairman of Charity Christian Aid, Rt. Rev. John Sentemu’s poll has also shown that four of every six Brits had contributed to humanitarian aid in Ukraine. He acknowledged the group to keep on praying and giving aid to the war-invaded country.
On January 28, Christian Aid’s Savanta Poll interviewed about 2,000 UK adults online, and the poll lasted till February 2.
“Vladimir Putin’s invasion has unleashed terrible violence and caused untold suffering to millions of innocent people. We have seen how homes have been destroyed, families torn apart, and innocent people subjected to atrocious violence and trauma. “Thanks to the British public’s overwhelming generosity to the Ukrainian people, Christian Aid has been able to work through local partners to make a difference. “That includes food and shelter but also supporting medics who regularly go to the front to provide treatment.”
“I am not surprised that so many people across our isles remain worried about the war. We must remember every prayer, every gift, every action is bringing hope to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.” Said the Chairman.
Christian aid has been able to generate £10 million through the Disaster Emergency Committee. The money raised is able to cater for over 770,000 victims of the war.
The former Archbishop of York in his conclusion said; “Christian Aid is therefore urging those in power not to give up searching for a just and lasting peace for Ukraine and to ensure the conflict does not cut support for other crises across the globe,”
