Members from across our Europe region have been supporting Ukrainians impacted by the war by offering accommodation abroad, collecting donations and distributing supplies.
Only a few days ago, a miraculous evacuation took place. On March 10th, after several failed attempts, two blessed families were successfully evacuated from the township of Bucha, near Kyiv.
They had spent much of the time living in the basement with their young children, including a two-month-old baby girl.
Miraculously, after boarding the first of several buses, the blessed families discovered that theirs was the only bus allowed to leave for Kyiv train station (pictured above). Kyiv News highlighted the plight of the 2-month-old baby.
Since the beginning of the war on February 24th 2022, almost all of the blessed wives and children have left the danger zones and moved to western Ukraine and/or to other countries.
Seven families and 10 young members moved to Poland, eight to Germany, three to Lithuania, one family each to Austria and Turkey.
More families will be moving abroad in the coming days. Two families are scheduled to soon arrive in the Peace Embassy in Budapest.
Meanwhile, on March 14th an apartment block (right) in Kyiv was destroyed by Russian missiles. This is where the current national leader and her family had lived with two other families from 2012 to 2016.
Our members across FFWPU EUME region have collectively raised over €100,000 in order to support our Ukrainian members.
On March 8th IRFF Italy sent several vehicles with five tonnes of supplies to the Moldova Peace Embassy in Chisinau. Members there organised its distribution to Ukrainian refugees who came to pick up the supplies.
Moldova FFWPU received a total of 3 tonnes of humanitarian aid from the Swiss NGO, Happy Links. Dozens of families have come each day to collect needed supplies.
Every day around ten volunteers with FFWPU and YSP Moldova come to help distribute the products. National leader Sabina Nadejdin and her family are also hosting a Ukrainian family with three young children in their home.
We would like to thank all of those who have donated to support Ukrainian refugees and hope that together we can continue to supporting them. If you would like to donate, please send your donations to the EUME PayPal address (Donate@ffwpu-eu.org) and mention “Ukraine Refugees”.
