“Humanitarian Aid” has a Face & a Name

We usually think of Humanitarian Aid as sort of anonymous. Who does it really come from, and who does it go to? We usually never know. However, when you give financially to Hope Now, or order something off our Amazon Wish List, YOU are providing Humanitarian Aid and we can tell you exactly who is receiving it. That’s because our own volunteers sort, pack, ship, and hand deliver it to people who need it, in Ukraine. You are being the hands and feet of Jesus to those in need in a war-ravaged land. Vitalina and Zhenya are some of the orphans who received food parcels this past week, along with others from Shpola Orphanage.

Physical and Spiritual Nourishment

In addition to supporting kids from the orphanage, our team members also go into areas that have been heavily bombed by the invaders where food is scarce. We work with our partner ministries who cook and bring meals and hand out food packets daily in areas where folks are literally starving – both physically and spiritually. Many pastors report that church attendance has doubled, and people on the street are very happy to hear the Good News.

Grateful for Medicine

We had such fantastic feedback from those who received our 8 MAP medical boxes last week! “Wow – when you told us you were sending us medicine, we never thought it would be prescription medicine! We took some to our local hospital, and they could not believe where we got it from! Another team member took her box to the soldier’s field hospital, and they were so grateful for anti-biotics and other medicines. Several of the First Aid kits were distributed to soldiers on the front lines, and tears came to their eyes when they saw what was inside – including the precious handwritten notes telling them that God loves them, and they are heroes. Thank you, Hope Now for this life-saving gift.”

We Need to Send More

Now that we are back from Romania and have spoken directly to all of the people who received our Amazon Wish List items, as well as our medical boxes, we have a better idea of what is most difficult to come by in Ukraine and therefore what is needed most. We have added additional items to our Wish List, so if you would like to see what we still need just click this link https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3KE40TXN8B95W?ref_=wl_share. We are currently packing additional medical kits and supplies for those still in Ukraine, mainly the elderly, remote families, and soldiers. We will be shipping these items to our contacts in Romania who will help us clear customs and then we will place these items directly into our own vans, and our own drivers will bring them deep inside Ukraine to the people who need them the most. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Sight-seeing and Searching for Scar Cream
Sight-seeing and Searching for Scar Cream

September 15, 2022

I just got back from Ukraine! It was a wonderful, yet bittersweet trip. My husband and I travelled to Poland to bring 700 + pounds of medical supplies, donated by generous people like you! After arriving safely with our 10 oversized duffle bags, we settled in to spend a long weekend in Warsaw. The weather was unbelievably hot, as Europe was in the tail-end of a summer-long heat wave. While Darrell made his Zoom calls, I traipsed around to all the local pharmacies in search of scar cream and potassium iodide radiation tablets, items that had just been requested by citizens fleeing the Zaporizhian Nuclear Power Plant region.

Here we are again, bringing life-saving medical supplies for soldiers and civilians from the USA to Ukraine. Today, my husband and I flew 10 x 70-pound duffle bags stuffed to the brim with tourniquets, military first aid kits, binoculars, anti-biotics, surgical instruments, and other critical care essentials. Each bag is valued at about $1,500-$2,000 worth of Amazon Wish List items that donors like YOU ordered and had shipped to our Atlanta office. We cannot thank you enough!

Welcome to America! That is what many Ukrainians are waiting to hear – including our dear Yana and her mom Luda. Finally, after leaving their home in Ukraine on Hope Now’s very last evacuation convoy this past March, and spending the last 4 months in Romania, these 2 ladies have arrived safely and are ready to settle into life in New Mexico!
