Journey Overview

This outreach is part of OM's humanitarian ministry in partnership with local churches, volunteers, the police chaplaincy movement and the Rivne city counsel. There are over 6 million internally displaced in Ukraine. Rivne city is struggling with electricity and heat supply which prompted OM to start this tent ministry where people can charge a device, have a cup of tea, find a little warmth and rest.

Security and safety issues is being constantly monitored. If the OM leadership deems the situation unsafe for STM participants the STM will be canceled and this could happen at any moment. Rivne is more than 700 km from the closest front lines at present. You should be aware that the possibility of missile trikes to Rivne city remains as well as a new invasion from Belarus about 500km north of Rivne.
OM will take every precaution to ensure your safety, however you will be asked to sign an indemnity form.

Participants will stay in the OM dorm rooms on bunk beds. Small towels, sheets, blankets are provided. Each room of 6 to 8 beds have en-suit showers and toilets


Three meals a day will be provided and is included in the budget. WE CANNOT cater for special dietary needs. However if a participant is willing to take responsibility for dietary needs, go and buy their own food, we would love to have them.


At the moment there are no flights flying into Ukraine because of the war. You will need to travel to the city of Rivne by bus. In case of a group of 4 or more coming, we may be able to organise a pick up from the Polish border crossing into Ukraine. Please take into account that border crossings into Ukraine can take a long time because of the war


Participants must be in excellent health. The health system in Ukraine is overstretched with wounded. Please bring along any personal medication with a clear new prescription preferably stamped when crossing the border.


Please check with your local Ukrainian embassy. EU, UK and US passport holders does not need a visa for a short term visit to Ukraine. Because of the war, there may be questions about why you want to enter Ukraine and OM in Ukraine is willing to provide a letter explaining what you will be doing here.
