"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you." (John 15:16)

Helping people in Ukraine

St. Nicolaus and Christmas Collection For Poor in Ukraine

Let's bring hope to people in need!

Dear friends,

Our traditional Saint Nicholas - Christmas collection for Ukraine has a special character this year. As a result of the ongoing war, there are more people in Ukraine who need hope and a helping hand. Those who remain in their country, mostly elderly, lonely, disabled, or sick people, are more and more faced with the reality that they do not have the means to provide basic life needs, including medicines.

Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone. However, with your continued support we would like to consolidate and strengthen the aide systems we have established over the last few years (even before the war). This support through the administration by our long-term collaborators who reside in Ukraine literally "transform" our financial contributions with their whole hearts and lives into concrete help and concrete hope - they buy and bring basic food, drugstore items and necessary medicines to poor people, or contribute to lonely or old people to pay for utilities when they are in danger of being completely cut off from energies.

"Through your gift, God shows me his presence, that he is close. His hands are your hands! Thanks to each of you." (Lonely elderly lady)

The goal of this collection is to create an aid package for the whole year so that we have a specific amount for each month that we can send to Ukraine. Such a regular amount will in a way be a certain "certainty" in the long term and will help our collaborators to more systematically secure and distribute aid directly on the spot.

What exactly will our contributions be used for?


Every donation is regularly sent to Ukraine to be distributed by our cooperators to those who need support the most. THANK YOU!

The Karol Wojtyla Mission School does not keep for its operation any commission for obtaining donations for Ukraine. We will be grateful for any support for activities of our organization. Thanks to your help, we are able to help to others. SUPPORT the activity of MŠKW – IBAN: SK3783300000000019810513. (Dary z ČR: č. účtu 19810513 / 2010 (Fio banka)

WHOM have we HELPED together with you?

Only brotherly love can cause that the one having something does not close in himself egoistically and the one who is poor does not feel humiliated in his need. (John Paul II)

"Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me." (Mt 25:40)

... and to many others whom God himself knows and who pray for you, benefactors, with thanksgiving...

THANK YOU for any support! May God act powerfully in your lives, too!

 „Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.Eph 6, 18

Dear friends, with deep heartache we have been observing what is going on now in country of our friends.

However, we believe that this war, too, can be stopped by prayer and fasting.



Help us continue to bring joy and assistance to people in need in Ukraine!

We would like to prepare for Christmas small gifts of food, fruits, and candies for all those to whom we have helped the whole year together with you! Unfortunately, during the pandemic, the number of big families, lonely individuals, single mothers, grandmas, grandpas, or priests in the need in Ukraine has rapidly increased. For that reason, we want to be helpful in this little way in order to reduce their pain and suffering.


Greeting of Thanksgiving from Ukraine

 "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." (Lk 6, 36)

Helping the poor bears much fruit. We want to share with you some news of our common partaking in God's mercy within the mission in Ukraine.


HOW can I help?


We would like to kindly ask you for intensive prayer support for this "little conceived initiative." Especially we would like to ask you for the protection of all people in need in Ukraine which God wants to help through this initiative. We will also appreciate your prayers for your coordinators in Ukraine to be protected under the mantle of Our Holy Mother Mary from any evil, disease, or sin and to be able to listen to God's voice. Let our prayers help them to bring support to those who truly need it. Our coordinators in Ukraine are our friends, with whom we have cooperated in the past on various projects of the Theology of the Body in Ukraine. There are lay people, priests, bishops, families, and religious communities. We have formed a valuable partnership of friendship and charitable work through the teaching of St. Pope John Paul II. and through devotion to the Holy Mother Mary. The aim of our partnership is to act together in charity and ask for necessary graces from God on the intercession of the Holy Mother Mary and St. Pope John Paul II. for each other and for the whole world. THANK YOU.
