WHAT YOUR DONATION
CAN DO IN UKRAINE
We are a local Slavic church in Evansville, IN, Grace of Christ, we created a mission to help those who are struggling in Ukraine. The purpose of our mission is to provide emergency assistance to Ukrainians who are currently suffering from the war. Our team consists of Christian immigrants from Ukraine. All funds will be transferred to local Christian volunteer organizations in Ukraine through trusted people we know personally. The funds will be used for the immediate and urgent needs of civilians, including food and other necessary products to sustain their lives. We want to note that currently, we have no means to receive and transfer any humanitarian aid. At this time, we only accept monetary donations that will be used to purchase all the necessary products.
WHERE WAR ACTIVITY IS CURRENTLY
IMMEDIATE NEEDS OF CIVILIANS IN
PRESENT, MAKING EVERYDAY LIFE IMPOSSIBLE
Food supply is running out for most families. Huge and urgent need in baby formula, as local stores are either closed or empty.
People seeking shelter
Civilians are hiding in basements, subway stations, bunkers and other shelters. Not all of them have proper ventilation and safe surfaces to sleep on. The need is for warm clothes, blankets, mattresses etc. Same for those, who stay in their homes, where gas supply was cut off. February is the coldest month of the year!
Need for Medication
The need for medication, including those for elderly people. Local pharmacies are running out of supplies. On top of being in a war, people are getting sick because of being in shelters that are often not heated.
SUPPORT FOR INFANTs
Local children's hospitals were damaged, children in underground shelters. There's a huge need for diapers and baby formula.
EVACUATING WOMEN AND CHILDREN
Efforts to evacuate women and children from cities of highest danger (Eastern Ukraine) to nearby areas or to the border with Poland and other countries, taking in refugees. Volunteers with vans are needed, as well as fuel money.
We are urging our American friends to be cautious with different organizations, claiming that they take donations for Ukraine. There are a lot of people, who use this time for their personal benefit, collecting money and sending absolutely no help to Ukraine. In other organizations there are too many hands for the money to go through, so only a portion actually goes to benefit Ukrainian people.
Urgent prayer needs are for the Ukrainian volunteers who will risk being outside and travel to get the resources and then distribute them to people in need. Neighborhoods are getting destroyed, dead people are seen on streets. It's not safe to travel and we pray for the courage of local people who risk their lives to bring help where it's needed.
