Support reaches the front lines

Father Roman (Роман Мануляк) blesses a vehicle purchased with the monies raised by Carl R Harvey and Myron Melnick through the benefactions of our community, near and far.

This vehicle will be used to transport goods and people near the front lines of the war.

Thank you!

UPDATE note on the Ukrainian Relief Project New Haven, August 3, 2022

The Ukrainian American Veterans Post 33, New Haven and the St Michael Humanitarian Relief Fund have been closely collaborating to provide medical supplies for Ukraine’s military.

We are now systematically refocusing our efforts to DIRECTLY address the immediate  medical needs  of those wounded on the front lines of combat . We aim to provide high quality supplies directly to those medics and soldiers on the front lines  in an all out effort to save lives.

To do this we are working closely with Father Roman Manuluk and his parish outside of Lviv, Ukraine. Father Roman coordinates with the Vynnyky Veterans Hospital and its director Doctor Maxym Prykupenko to receive and distribute our supplies to where they are needed most throughout Ukraine . We know and trust both Father Roman (he is a relative of one of our parishioners) and Doctor Prykupenko  personally and have worked with them throughout to guarantee that our assistance gets to those places that need it.

Change in Saturday volunteering

The truck collecting the goods from St Michael’s on Saturday, 7/30, has changed the time to the afternoon on Saturday. Work time will now start at 1pm.

As many know, the packing up of the goods going to Ukraine is a process which includes labelling boxes, accounting for the contents of each box and getting the boxes on the truck.

Thank you for your willingness to help! It is much appreciated.

Help needed Saturday, July 30

We are preparing to send another shipment of medical and humanitarian aid to Ukraine next weekend.
