About This session

When Russia invaded Ukraine almost a year ago, the Presbyterian Church (USA) wasted no time in reaching out to our international sibling churches and colleagues to see how we could help. Susan Krehbiel—a ruling elder and member at Catonsville Presbyterian—coordinates a cross-ministry response team that provides financial support for this humanitarian assistance. As the Associate for Migration Accompaniment Ministries for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), Susan will share about our national and international partners who are providing assistance to Ukrainians displaced internally and who live as refugees in neighboring countries. She will also share what she saw and learned during a recent visit to Hungary, Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Poland and how this informs her work and ministry. In the years to come—during this war and afterwards—Presbyterian Disaster Assistance will be supporting Ukrainians as they seek safety, wholeness, and when the time comes, a rebuilt homeland.
