Last night, despite the frequent bombings and the random border closures, our All4Aid team in Romania was able to bring our 20th shipment of food into Ukraine since the beginning of the war! Due to the risk, only All4Aid team members who do not have young children joined the trip this time.
We drove in panel vans, to avoid the long queue for trucks at the border. We brought 7 pallets (ca. 3 tons) of food, including potatoes, flour, oil, rice, carrots, pasta and canned meat, in order to enable our church partners in Izmail to meet the increasingly severe needs on the ground.
Pictured in the photo are 3 Ukrainian pastors / leaders from our partner churches unloading the food. They drove in their own panel vans to meet our All4Aid team at the Ukrainian side of the border, collected the food, and drove back, boldly risking their lives to help feed the communities around them.
With heartfelt gratitude, they expressed several times how the food arriving at this time was an answer to prayers! Humbled by their dedication, we could not help thinking that those of us who are on this side of the border volunteering, giving and praying actually have the easy part of the job.
Would you consider making a donation to All4Aid today to enable us to send our next shipment of food soon?
Would you consider praying regularly for the safety of our team members and church partners on the ground?
