Our Ukrainian Refugee Response programme continues at full speed! Besides managing three houses for Ukrainian refugees in Bucharest, the All4Aid team in Romania continues to personally take 6.000,00 Euros worth of food into Ukraine on a weekly basis.
All4Aid has an agreement with a local wholesaler which takes our list of food items, organises the food in pallets, and even helps loading the food into our vehicles. Our team then drives the food into Ukraine, a trip that involves a long drive, a ferry crossing, going through customs, and normally takes 24 hours to be completed.
The food is brought directly to our partners; churches in Ukraine that use their buildings as distribution centres to feed the community around them. Every week they tell us what items they need and we bring it for them. Initially our Ukrainian partners were able to drive to a village near the Ukrainian border and we handed over the food items to them there.
However, in the past few weeks there has been a shortage of fuel in Ukraine. So, our team has been driving into Ukraine all the way to the church buildings, which has significantly increased our risks. Please continue to pray for the safety of our team and for the safety of our Ukrainian partners involved in this operation each week.
