With a massive influx of people fleeing from the eastern regions to the west of the country, our friends at Hungry For Life International and their partners are working to care for those fleeing the war. They are connected with a network of churches serving internally displaced people in the Mukacheve area near the border with Hungary. They are providing shelter for refugees in their area and outside funds will help with food, mattresses and other essentials. As the conflict continues, they are working to provide and facilitate longer-term options for housing and caring for refugees.
Hungry For Life has also begun warehousing and distributing aid throughout the country through a vast network of local partners. They have been able to source food locally when available as well as receive material aid shipments from neighboring EU countries. With a fleet of vehicles and volunteer drivers, they have prioritized the delivering of necessary aid to people in the war zone areas to the east who are in greatest need.
The first 3 phases of Hungry For Life’s response have been completed with over half a million people being helped using $2 million dollars in donations received. This represents 650 tons of food and supplies being delivered across the country through over 500 deliveries from their two warehouses.
Phase 4 – Ongoing
Expected Cost – $2 – $4,000,000
Number of people helped – 1,657,000+
