The Social Justice and Witness team is exploring ways to enhance our Global Ministries work. The work of the Tasajera committee continues with scholarships for the youth of this small El Salvador island, and growing the relationships that were established years ago. In addition, the SJW committee voted to contribute $1,000 from our church-allocated Global Mission fund to the UCC Global H.O.P.E and Global Ministries program. The UCC is able to get food relief to refugees quickly and efficiently because of their local partners. They are working with Hungarian Reformed Church Aid, a group that has been offering humanitarian assistance to elderly and other vulnerable communities inside Ukraine who have not been able to leave, including immigrants and other migrant populations who are experiencing difficulties crossing into other European countries.
