Kelowna man helps refugees

The development director at Kelowna's Gospel Mission is in Romania working to help Ukrainian refugees.

Mike Morrison has been in the country since March 19, heading up a humanitarian medical team helping Ukrainian refugees.

Morrison is using his expertise to support overseas non-governmental organizations to provide services like mental health support as well as hygiene and shelter needs with Project HOPE.

"We are thrilled to see Mike go and use his skills to help those in need in Romania. Our mission is to feed, shelter and help those in need; this work with refugees fleeing war is in alignment with our Mission and values," said Carmen Rempel, executive director of Kelowna’s Gospel Mission.

"It brings to light the global issues of the devastation of war and trauma, causing homelessness and poverty on a massive scale. We pray for peace."
