The supply chain has been completely disrupted in the eastern part of Ukraine, and all major cities residents like Kharkiv are facing hunger. We have established a re-supply and rescue network utilizing small minivans through our partner volunteers and local churches. Bulk supplies and Personal Care Packages are being assembled/loaded at border towns of Romania, and drivers seek out routes and transport aid to those cities, distributing locally within an established church network.
Our partner volunteers on the ground in Ukraine are using personal vans they had, or others have loaned for humanitarian aid in transporting supplies and/or evacuating refugees. They are not asking for anything in return other than the fund is covering the expenses of fuel.
Bulk supplies like sugar, flour, oil, and personal care package filled with essentials in smaller packages with sugar, oil, flour, toiletries, and other items that will last a refugee 2-3 days. They are pre-packaged to make distribution on site easier and quicker.
Lining up by thousands hoping the supplies don't run out before their turn. Primarily women and or children left behind by their fathers defending the country from the invasion.
Drivers are risking their lives every day making this dangerous supply run. When they make it home safely, they cannot stay behind, knowing that thousands depend on their work, they resupply and go back next day. Some do not make it back and in many incidents, vans are bombed, blown up and some drivers have now lost their lives. There is a significant immediate need to replace those lost vans to continue the established resupply aid lines for the refugees.
You may donate any amount and or sponsor the full van. A giving statement will be provided for your tax purposes.
This is a 7 seater van that will be used to load supplies one way and on return route bring refugees back to safety in the west and or to the border crossing points in Romania and or Poland
