Let's bring hope to people in need!
Our traditional Saint Nicholas - Christmas collection for Ukraine has a special character this year. As a result of the ongoing war, there are more people in Ukraine who need hope and a helping hand. Those who remain in their country, mostly elderly, lonely, disabled, or sick people, are more and more faced with the reality that they do not have the means to provide basic life needs, including medicines.
Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone. However, with your continued support we would like to consolidate and strengthen the aide systems we have established over the last few years (even before the war). This support through the administration by our long-term collaborators who reside in Ukraine literally "transform" our financial contributions with their whole hearts and lives into concrete help and concrete hope - they buy and bring basic food, drugstore items and necessary medicines to poor people, or contribute to lonely or old people to pay for utilities when they are in danger of being completely cut off from energies.
"Through your gift, God shows me his presence, that he is close. His hands are your hands! Thanks to each of you." (Lonely elderly lady)
The goal of this collection is to create an aid package for the whole year so that we have a specific amount for each month that we can send to Ukraine. Such a regular amount will in a way be a certain "certainty" in the long term and will help our collaborators to more systematically secure and distribute aid directly on the spot.
What exactly will our contributions be used for?
