We are heartbroken at the tragic events unfolding in Ukraine. Following months of troop buildup, divisions of the Russian army, ordered by Vladimir Putin, began the invasion of Ukraine. Following armored divisions and rocket attacks, the country of Ukraine is now mired in fear and chaos. The future of the people here is now uncertain as the world watches the Ukraine crisis unfold.
While many world leaders have condemned the actions of the Russian government, the situation for millions of Ukrainian citizens is precarious. In addition to shelling and missile fire, citizens face dire shortages of food, water and supplies. Many are fleeing the area and will need shelter and support as they seek safety. Help now!
Aid For The Ukraine Crisis From Operation Blessing
Operation Blessing has been on the ground helping Ukrainian citizens whose lives have been violently disrupted by the invasion. We immediately began distributing water and food kits with enough provisions for 7 to 10 days. In addition Operation Blessing has procured generators and fuel to help citizens who are without power or will lose it as the conflict intensifies.
Generators also provide essential power for charging phones to keep in touch with loved ones during this nightmarish time. The need for more food, water, and supplies is growing. As the situation unfolds, we are also aiding evacuees in any way possible.

Ukraine Refugee Mothers Tell Their Stories
Raw statistics do not tell the full story about Ukrainian refugees. Predominately women and children, each of these refugees is a person who has watched their life be completely uprooted, disrupted, and shaken by events outside of their control. As they flee to a new and unknown country, their former lives are on hold with no clear plans of what the future will bring.
Operation Blessing staff sat down with mothers who had fled the war scarred landscape of Ukraine. Coming from different places across the country, they share with us how real the danger has become. They go into details about the aggression they endured even as they were fleeing the country. Here are links to two stories that give you first person accounts of why these woman had to leave and how you are making a huge difference in their disrupted lives.
