Just some of the food being distributed in Ukraine
We have a considerable amount of food on our last truck to Ukraine and much of this has been packaged and given to families who have so little.
Most of the aid has now been distributed in Ukraine and we anticipate the next lorry will leave a few weeks after Christmas. January is usually the coldest month and without continuous electricity and lack of heating life is going to be extraordinarily difficult.
This is a huge ask but we really need as many generators as we can get to take to Ukraine.
We have all seen how the infrastructure is being destroyed by Russia leaving thousands vulnerable to the bitter winter temperatures. Many of the houses and flats will have no heating nor anywhere to have a fire to keep warm.
Please, if you have a generator you are will to donate or have any ideas where we can get any please let us know.
The bitter winter has started and there are thousands in Ukraine without electricity. Before the war they enjoyed a good standard of living; towns and cities had hotels, restaurants and cafés. Theatres, cinemas and many other centres of entertainment thrived.
The escalation of the war has changes all this, places of entertainment were quickly closed when it became obvious such establishments that attract crowds would also attract the attention of Mr Putin’s bombs and missiles.
More recently, the infrastructure has been targeted resulting in the widely published power cuts; thousands without electricity, heating etc. Their now life is largely lived in the dark and cold.
The fantastic financial support we have received has meant we had the funds to provide lots of wood for families and community.
