The winter in Ukraine has been particularly harsh. Russians bomb the power grid daily and some orphanages have power for only 4 hours a day or less. Over the past few months, we have focused on the most critical needs. We purchased 37 generators, 2,400 winter coats, 2,000 blankets, 1,000 pairs of boots and much needed food and clothing. The children have been sleeping in the coats to stay warm at night.
We are so thankful to Jay Timmons, his team at the National Association of Manufacturers, and the incredible folks at UPS who volunteered their time and resources to deliver 1,154 pounds of coats (at no charge) from Louisville, Kentucky to Boryslav, Ukraine.
