These goods have been shipped to different cities in Ukraine, and are being continually distributed to Orphanages, Hospitals, Hospice Centers, Churches, Senior Citizens, Prisons and to the needy.  

Ukraine's Cry, Master's Response

Like any war, the one in Ukraine is full of so many sad stories. And it goes on and on with no end in sight and not getting any better! A Forgotten War on Europe’s Doorstep. The war in Ukraine hardly makes the headlines anymore. But life goes on. After all, for most Ukrainians not living in the war zone, the economic downturn and the tumbling value of the national currency have been more painful burdens to bear than the war. (View video below)

What was once an acute humanitarian crisis in the eastern war zone has devolved into a long-term catastrophe. The humanitarian situation in eastern Ukraine is … the worst it has been now in three years and deteriorating. More than 4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, among them 580,000 children. More than 1 million people in Donbas region are food insecure, civilian casualties are up significantly over last year. Land mines and booby traps have become a lethal threat for civilians, accounting for more than half of civilian casualties this year. Tonight, there are roughly 60,000 Ukrainian troops deployed in the frigid trenches and embattled front-line villages of eastern Ukraine with over 2,000,000 Internally Displaced People (refugees). When the sun goes down on this night, the tracers will cut across the dark sky up and down the 250-mile-long front line. War-weary soldiers and civilians will hunker down in trenches and in cellars, staving off the cold and the fear as they have for four winters now. There’s a 1 in 3 chance a Ukrainian soldier will die tonight on that lonely, frigid battlefield at the hands of a Russian weapon. Also, there’s a good chance a civilian will be killed or wounded tonight. 

Masters has heard the cry of the people and risen to the occasion

by continually sending containers of aid to the Eastern Zone.  The Gleaners have graciously been supplying Masters with containers of aid (soup mix) and consented to give us more this year. We ask for your prayers and support for shipping costs.
