Word of Life, Poltava (Housing, Food assistance)
We hosted more than 200 people from Kharkiv, Donetsk and Luhansk regions since the beginning of the war in our shelter. Every day our shelter hosts 20 people who receive three meals a day; their needs for medicines and pastoral care are met.
For the last two months, we have provided food packages and hygiene supplies to about 1500 people in Poltava and about 1000 people in Poltava region and in other regions.
In particular, we provided aid to Kharkiv – 300 food packages, Akhtyrka and Trostianets – 70 food packages. Poltava region: Khorol, Shyshaky, Karlivka, Koshmanivka, Nekhvoroshcha and other villages – more than 600 food packages were distributed.
Also, every Saturday we give hot meals to about 100 people at the train station. Every Sunday we help the dormitory where about 200 people live; and we help the educational institutions where the displaced people live – 200 people.
Over the last two months of the war, we have helped more than 200 people to travel abroad or to safe areas. Twice a week we take people to the Polish border by our minivan.
We daily keep in touch with the regions where the hostilities take place, and we help people with food, as well as take them to safe areas.
During the war, the Word of Life Church has created a project “There is help”, which is aimed at helping children, the hungry, the displaces and the needy.
