Description of The Need
There are tens of thousands of civilians in the East and South of Ukraine, living in towns and villages with destroyed infrastructure, no electricity, no running water, and no heat. These places are under constant fire from rockets, bombs, and shells. Because of the war, the Ukrainian economy has ground to a halt. The Ukrainian government does not have the necessary resources to provide basic needs to all people. Most people are relying totally on humanitarian aid.
With winter approaching there is a great need for warm clothing and other supplies needed to help people survive. The Binghamton First Ukrainian Pentecostal Church is collecting supplies that will be shipped via a container to a warehouse in Western Ukraine. The warehouse is operated by Christian brothers with all required accountability and transparency. Teams of Christian Ukrainian volunteers from local churches are delivering aid directly to needy people in the war zones.
There is a substantial expense associated with shipments, and monetary aid is appreciated.
