UKRAINE AID SHIPMENTS 2022

UPDATED TUESDAY AUGUST 30, 2022 9:20 AM EST

Matthew 25: Ministries is continuing to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The crisis escalated as a result of active conflict that began in February 2022. More than 12 million people have been displaced from their homes, with many more stranded or trapped in areas affected by the conflict. Prior to the conflict, Ukraine was one of the more impoverished European nations, and the current crisis has increased the demand for basic necessities. Many regions are struggling to meet the increasing demands for supplies to serve those affected.

Matthew 25 works with partners throughout the year to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine and other areas within the Commonwealth of Independent States. As an outcome of these partnerships, Matthew 25 had supplies on the ground before the invasion that were ready for immediate distribution. Matthew 25 is working with these same partners and other expanded partnerships to provide items such as personal care supplies, paper products, and clothing to Ukraine to assist people who have remained in country or who have been displaced.

Matthew 25 has shipped more than 700,000 pounds of aid to assist people who have been impacted by this crisis. In addition to shipping supplies, Matthew 25 is providing support for the delivery of internally-sourced supplies and for relief programs including feeding, shelter, medical care, essential supplies, transportation assistance and educational services for Ukrainians in need or fleeing conflict. Matthew 25 aid is reaching more than 20 cities in Ukraine and four of the surrounding countries accepting refugees. Matthew 25 is helping approximately 2 million refugees, orphans, and others in need.

This is a long-term response and we will continue helping those affected for a long time to come.
