When Ukraine got invaded by Russia and refugees started to flee the country, Emanuel Clinic responded in the following ways…
Their centre opened to provide medical assistance and spiritual counselling to those in need
They used their two Christian centres within the Baptist Union (Balțata and Vatici, where in each of them about 150 refugees were housed);
They prepared first aid parcels and provided medical assistance for those who in need.
Teams were created from the Emanuel Centre to go to these centres as volunteers to help in the kitchen, cleaning works, wherever else needed.
They organised teams to support women and children in their spiritual wellbeing by running a spiritual programme and preaching the Gospel
All the Emanuel team brought everything they had: clothes, food, hygiene products - to support these people;
Many families from the CMC Emanuel team have housed refugees in their houses.
They have tried to provide the essential services: consultations, general blood tests, USG, ECG (as needed) and essential medicines (anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antihypertensive, etc.)
For example, a refugee woman called with a sick child - she was offered consultations, blood tests, and inhalation for the child. Another woman with two children and pregnant with imminent danger requested a consultation: USG. They gladly offer the requested help. Praise God that the team have been able to support refugees in this way!
