Salvatorian Alms for Ukraine

Dear Parishioners, during Lent many of you gave something up and offered an Alm to generously support parishes and communities in Ukraine. Below is an update from a Salvatorian-led Parish in Brzozdowce, Ukraine, highlighting some of the projects funded by Salvatorian Parishes around the world, including Resurrection of Our Lord Parish. There have been transports with humanitarian aid to Salvatorian Parishes helping refugees in Ukraine. A Mitsubishi L200 truck was purchased (as well as a new ambulance). The truck is operated by a local parishioner (a platoon paramedic) to provide medical aid to those wounded in combat in Eastern Ukraine. In addition to providing relief to refugees, the Parish in Brzozdowce has become a humanitarian aid point. Aid supports the immediate needs of the population, but is mainly distributed by the Pastor to hospitals and dormitories sheltering refugees in Nowy Rozdół, Ukraine. Aid is also sent to volunteer organizations caring for young children and orphans from areas affected by intense military operations (the bombarded city of Bucza near Kiev, as well as Luhansk, Donetsk and Zaporizhia oblatsts). Mattresses were provided for an orphanage in Eastern Ukraine, and for Ukrainian defenders, as well as for refugees in the Brzozdowce Parish boundaries. The Salvatorian Fathers continue to organize convoys with aid!

On behalf of the Salvatorian Fathers working in Ukraine, the people of Brzozdowce parish, and those who live there as refugees, I want to say thanks to Resurrection of Our Lord Parishioners who gave Alms to the people in Ukraine. And I would like to personally say congratulations to those who gave their gifts by giving something up for themselves to give to others.
