The crisis committee of the Archdiocese of Ivano-Frankivsk, especially the distribution center that handles humanitarian aid to those affected by the war, recently received 27 tons of food, hygiene items and basic necessities and sent them to the contested areas of eastern and northern Ukraine.
These days, volunteers from the crisis committee made it possible to send aid to the needs of the military and civil administrations of Kharkiv and Chernihiv. In addition to our Archdiocese, several other Ukrainian aid organizations and benefactors took part in this humanitarian convoy.
Through joint efforts, 140 tons of humanitarian aid were sent to Kharkiv (archdiocesen contribution – 20 tons) and 120 tons to Chernihiv (archdiocesen contribution – 7 tons). In general, humanitarian aid consisted of food, hygiene products, medicines and clothing.
“Our volunteers have been working hard these days packaging a wide variety of humanitarian aid. We are glad that all the freight we receive is quickly sent to where it is long awaited. With our help we want to save human life”, – said the Depute of Finance Officer of the Archdiocese of Ivano-Frankivsk, Rev. Vitaliy Maksymiv.
Since the beginning of the war, “humanitarian” transports from the Archdiocese of Ivano-Frankivsk have arrived in various cities – in the Donetsk, Kharkiv, Sumy and Kyiv regions, totaling more than 150 tons.
Such an initiative is possible thanks to the support of both our benefactors from abroad and the parishes of the Archdiocese of Ivano-Frankivsk, who support this social project.
