Springfield Refugee Aid

Helping Ukrainian refugees in the Springfield, Missouri metro area

Ukrainian refugees are coming to the Springfield area

Springfield Refugee Aid was formed by a group of Slavic and American volunteers to help with local relief efforts for refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine. Springfield Refugee Aid operates in partnership with Prayer in the Square, Bread of Life Slavic Church, and other local Slavic and American churches

This website provides information and opportunities to take action to help people in need of basic necessities, housing, and food
