UPDATE FROM UKRAINE – Apr 30, 2022
CSUF has been working with the Dorosh Heritage Team of volunteers in Ukraine to provide support since the beginning of the hot war. The volunteer group in Europe includes members living in Ukraine, as well as Poland, Germany, and the Netherlands. It makes it possible to find and deliver some special supplies that are no longer available in Ukraine. We support the Ukraine military, and the refugees, and send food to people living in the hot war zone and areas deployed by the Russians.
But for the detailed reports provided to each of the CSUF donors by email, we are starting to post updates on the website. This is what has been done recently:
Food for refugees and areas affected by the hot war
We have bought 1.7 tons of cereals, 4.3 tons of potatoes, and 430 cans of canned food. It has all been sent to people in the particular towns in Mykolaiv, Kyiv, and Donetsk areas, together with other humanitarian aid collected by other volunteers in the town of Volodymyr in the west of Ukraine. Food is not a big problem in the west yet and we are able to help. However, we can see the supplies are getting tight and we are working to organize them from Poland.
You can check our previous post about the trip to the Makariv area in Kyiv province to deliver humanitarian aid to the citizens of the villages that were liberated by the Ukrainian army: https://csuf.ca/andriivka-village-after-occupation/
We have also delivered some very specific equipment like laser rangefinders, thermal image cameras, modems to create protected signal networks, and radiophones directly to the military units at the frontline. It will help them see the enemy better, improve communication and save lives. We work directly with soldiers who are at the frontline and it’s the way to provide the most effective support.
Special thank you to our Polish friends who have bought, serviced, and donated a vehicle for one of the military units:
We are grateful to all CSUF donors for your support.
