HELP us get food to those in desperate need
While the world has rallied around Ukraine over the past two months, for us at HART, being on the 'ground' has indeed been a roller coaster ride.
From gut-wrenching shock at the unspeakable horrors in the town of Bucha to a profound sense of accomplishment at being one of the first NGOs to enter this town and distribute food to its grateful citizens. We also provided Bucha with two ambulances to save lives in this community.We could not have done this without YOU!
However, we are needed now more than ever in many parts of Ukraine.Russian forces are closing in on several cities, making it harder to get aid into some of the most war-torn regions of Ukraine. Food is becoming more and more scarce. We have a very limited window of opportunity to get help to the people living in these areas.
Thanks to all of you in HART's community who want to help us get food to those in need.
A HART van is bombed - Video
Hundreds of pastors and volunteers in HART's network throughout Ukraine are selflessly risking their own lives to help the less fortunate. Here is what happened to a couple of them last week.
Two Christian volunteers were driving one of our vehicles delivering food to people near Kharkiv. Without warning, they were hit by a Russian cluster bomb. The missiles destroyed quite a bit of the van's exterior, but it miraculously was still drivable.
Food distribution process - to the war zones
THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT - the following is an example of our food distribution process, which on this day was being used to send aid to the people of Kharkiv, Ukraine.
It all starts from our warehouse in Warsaw, Poland. Food is purchased at wholesale prices and stockpiled for delivery. Semi-trucks are loaded and sent across the border into Ukraine - to distribution points near cities in the conflict zones.
Watch this short video recorded by the passenger immediately after the missile strike. The two men, understandably shocked and terrified and realizing they could have been killed, began praising, worshipping, and thanking God for saving their lives.
Loving God, loving others.
The resiliency and sacrificial spirit of Ukrainian Christians during this war is simply awe-inspiring. How would we in the West respond if a war was happening in our backyard? The following is a letter from a Pastor who, thanks to YOU, has a vehicle that he uses for evacuating civilians and hand-delivering food to needy families.
We visited Pastor Andriy's church yesterday. He is a sincere and modest man. His church is helping refugees and all those in need from Kharkiv, Sniherivka, Bashtanka, Bereznovata, Kobzartsi, and Mykolaiv. More than a thousand people have already received help and Christian literature.
Praise God! I would like to add that, God willing, next week, we will revisit Andriy's church and bring food to the surrounding villages. According to local pastors, about twelve refugees are living in every house. These people suffer from emotional pain caused by what they have been through and need our support. We will try to be good Samaritans for them! Pastor Ihor
Please help Pastors like Ihor and Andriy and hundreds of other Christians who are helping those impacted by this war.
