Food Aid & Seed Goods in Ukraine

What is the situation?

The war in Ukraine mainly rages in the south and east of the country. This causes the supply of food to falter. The Ukrainian armed forces have recaptured much of the territory in the east. As a result, we can help by bringing food and seeds so that farmers and households can grow their own food.

How does the Worldpartners Foundation help?

It is relatively quiet in the west of Ukraine. It is precisely in this region that the Worldpartners Foundation has a farm and we work together with a number of farmers and local suppliers of food products. Through the distribution network which we built up in the recent activities, we distribute food throughout entire Ukraine, such as potatoes, flour, pork, sugar and other products.

In the period April to August 2022, the Worldpartners Foundation was able to distribute more than 1.5 million kilos of goods. A large part of these were seeds, which enabled Ukrainians to grow their own food. Using a careful calculation, we could assume that the total harvest from these seeds amounts to another 5.7 million kilos of food (see Infographic seed multiplication Ukraine Project ‘Aid 2 Villages’)!

How does the food distribution work?

Worldpartners transports the foodstuffs in large numbers to our local partners spread over different parts of Ukraine. From these partners, the food is divided into smaller packages and distributed to beneficiaries in affected villages and towns. We also finance food transports to the center and south of Ukraine. These people from the Worldpartners network transport the goods further by car to the places where the food is badly needed.

Who are the distributors?

At the moment, only the Ukrainians themselves are able to distribute food within the country. Thanks to our large network, we have managed to mobilize dozens of Ukrainians to go out for us . For example our friend Pasya. Together with his friends, he drives at the risk of his own life to places where the need is great.

What can you do?

You could pray that our help reaches the places where it is needed most. Pray for safety of our distributors. You could also share about this project with others or make a  donation.
