Zaporozhye Evangelical Mennonite Church (ZEMC) is a small fellowship of believers in the city of Zaporozhye, very close to the former Mennonite colony of Chortitza. Because of an ongoing economic crisis, and its proximity to the current civil war in eastern Ukraine, many in this region struggle to maintain family life and adequate income. The Zaporozhye congregation provides a place for worship, fellowship and support, particularly for women members of the community, in a region of many challenges.

Growing food through aquaponics

Kid friendly project!

Did you know that fish poop makes an excellent natural fertilizer for fruits and vegetables – without the need for soil? And that the growing plants clean the water for the fish?

This closed system of raising food is called aquaponics. It’s environmentally friendly, can be done on a small scale, and provides a healthy diet of fish and green produce.

A gift to “Where Most Needed” is a gift to the whole church and is the most helpful and flexible gift anyone can make.

Gifts to “Where Most Needed” help workers spend 100% of their time on ministry rather than fundraising-related activities, and help keep money in the local economy by growing and developing local congregations and disciples of Christ.
