Help the Capuchin friars in Ukraine and Poland

Help the Capuchin friars in Ukraine and Poland

Our Capuchin brothers in Ukraine have decided to remain to provide humanitarian and spiritual support to the people trapped in the warzone. Meanwhile our brothers across the border in Poland are assisting refugees fleeing Ukraine, now numbering in the millions. You can help by making a donation. 100% of donations will go directly to the friars in Ukraine and Poland so that they may continue their life-saving work.
