Kutrov, Ukraine, March 28, 2019
The Ukrainian Orthodox Church’s Thabor charitable foundation is asking for financial assistance for the family of a priest that is being evicted from their parish home by activists of the schismatic “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” (OCU).
The activists have given Fr. Nikolai Sliva, his matushka, and his two one-year-old children one week to leave their home that is connected to the Church of St. George in the village of Kutrov in the Volyn Province.
“Dear brothers and sisters! Our charitable foundation is asking for help for Fr. Nikolai Sliva… The other day his family was given an ultimatum: to move out of the parish house within a week. And it’s not so easy—the family includes a matushka with two one-year-old babies in hand and practically no means of livelihood, because the community of the church where Fr. Nikolai served switched to the OCU,” the foundation writes in its message.
Help for Fr. Nikolai and his family is needed urgently, as they have to move urgently and start a new life with no money in hand.
Anyone who wants to help the family can send funds to the bank card of his matushka Miroslava Valerievna Sliva: PrivatBank 5168 7573 5695 5965.
The Thabor charitable fund was established in September 2014 with the blessing of His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine to help the civilian population in the midst of the active hostilities in eastern Ukraine. The fund actively cooperates with the Synodal Department on Social and Humanitarian Issues.
