This year, Jeremiah’s Hope has shipped seven containers of relief aid to Ukraine. The aid has been distributed to refugees and to those who are living in villages cut off from supplies along the edge of the eastern Ukrainian war zone.
We are happy to announce that our 8th container of humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine is sorted, packed, stacked, palletized, shrink wrapped and was loaded onto the container this morning. This container will be filled with blankets, winter coats, diapers, wet wipes, wheel chairs, crutches, walkers, sewing machines, mattresses and other items.
This morning, we began loading container #8 at 8:00 AM. In less than 2 hours the container was packed and sealed and it is now on the road headed to Houston and will sail on board a ship on 21 September as it makes it way to Odessa, Ukraine and then by land up to Kyiv. It is expected to arrive into Kyiv around October 29th.
