Through most of March, World Partners prioritized urgent food distribution needs as many necessities such as food, water, and electricity were difficult or impossible to obtain for residents in affected cities such as Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol.
However, as the war continued to affect millions of civilians, we were increasingly asked for medical supplies; medicines, equipment for first aid, etc. from our contacts within the country. We prayerfully sought to meet this great need.
Thankfully, we located medical supplies through a German supplier who generously donated half of the supplies and on March 23rd, a small truckload full of medical supplies arrived at our assembly point in Western Ukraine.
We are grateful to report medical goods have found Kyiv as their destination where our local church partner is currently responsible to distribute to those who need them.
