“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.

For all of you folks who wrote to us last month, asking if you could host Ukrainians in your home – the time has come! The USA government has launched “Uniting For Ukraine.” This program allows Americans to apply to sponsor Ukrainian evacuees. Once the American hosts are approved, the Ukrainians will be able to create a profile online and if approved, will receive permission to travel to the USA. THERE IS NO COST TO APPLY. However, there is paperwork!

These days, our newscasts are overflowing with countless gut-wrenching photos of Ukrainians – civilians and soldiers alike, suffering terribly. We continue to lift up the country of Ukraine in prayer and ask God for His protection and peace. We send life-saving medicines, support housing & meal programs, deliver food and clothing, and even send supplies to the military. Does any of this make any difference? Does any of it alleviate any suffering?

Zoë & MaryJane’s main mission was to personally deliver 500 pounds of valuable medical supplies to our volunteers near the Romanian / Ukrainian border. Even though they had several fiery darts thrown at them during the 27-hour journey to Romania, God smoothed their path at each turn and brought them and all the bags to safety. After handing off the financial donations and bags to our Ukrainian volunteers, Zoë & MJ started a long zig zag journey across the country (through the Carpathian Mountains) to the other side of Romania. Once they arrived, and were a little bit rested, they were ready to spend some time with our kids and moms there
