Central Jersey #Walk4Ukraine
Friday, April 22, 2022 at 12:30 p.m.!
 
 For nearly 50 years, United Reformed Church has faithfully hosted the Central Jersey CROP Hunger Walk, sponsored by Church World Services (CWS), raising thousands of dollars for hunger programs around the world and locally.  In light of recent events, we are hosting a special #Walk4Ukraine this spring to support Ukrainian refugees.
 
Many families and individuals left everything behind when they fled the violence in their hometowns. Thousands made their way by train, car and even on foot to seek safety in Moldova.  Once refugees reach the border of Moldova, they are greeted at a tent run by a local church that has partnered with CWS. The CWS response team is trained on the long-term implications of war. The team is providing emergency assistance with basic needs such as food, water, sanitation and mental healthcare. 
 
The Central Jersey #Walk4Ukraine will take place on Friday, April 22, 2022 at 12:30 p.m. and will start and end at United Reformed Church, 100 W. Main Street, Somerville, NJ.  Many Ukrainians arriving in Moldova are coming from the port city of Odessa.  The distance from Odessa to Chisinau (Moldova's capital) is 117 miles. We will walk approximately 1.17 miles in downtown Somerville to show our support and solidarity with Ukrainian refugees. 
 
A donation of just $6.00 can provide a meal to a family entering the border of Moldova. I can't think of a better way to greet those in need that are scared, tired and hungry than with a welcoming warm meal. I hope you will consider making a contribution. It is a simple way that we can lift our hearts to refugees and show our support for world peace.
