Award “For Services to the People”

Today we have an opportunity to sum up the results of our activity, because we received the award from the Government of Ukraine!

The awarding ceremony took place in the Metropolitan’s House of Sophia Kyivska National Reserve. The First Vice-Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament Oleksandr Kornienko, while giving the award, noted that today’s event was a sign of cooperation and dialogue, gratitude from the authorities and the Ukrainian people to religious communities and organizations that are highly trusted.

“During the difficult seven months of the war, we saw that your support, your good pastoral word is important for Ukrainians both in the rear and at the front”, — Mr. Kornienko said.

Six months have passed since the first TIR trucks with humanitarian aid arrived in Ukraine. During this time, we have already received and sent 132 TIR trucks almost all over Ukraine, which is 2,276 tons of food and hygiene items… We covered Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya, Sumy, Poltava, Mykolaiv, Lviv and Transcarpathian region.

Although these numbers are just dry statistics, they are impressive!

We managed to establish cooperation with 15 organizations – both state and religious, as well as with charitable foundations.

Three-day centres have already been opened: in Kyiv, Odesa and Kharkiv, where temporarily displaced persons and people who have suffered war losses will soon be able to receive not only humanitarian aid, but also specialist advice, legal support in resolving difficult circumstances, rehabilitation, and psychological recovery.

There is already a launch of the preparation for winter: we are actively purchasing heaters, blankets, pillows, stoves, firewood, etc.

We are preparing new places for winter for families left without housing or forced to leave their homes. We have not even noticed how much we have achieved during this time, and all this is the merit of every our employee, volunteer, manager and, of course, our partners, donors (patrons), sponsors and extraordinary support of the United Kingdom community. Thank you all for your cooperation and endurance!
