More than 114,000 people fed from the Kyiv region all the way around to Odessa. Where meals are delivered on each trip depends on where the need is greatest at the time.
Much of the work that it takes to produce, package, and deliver those meals is now being done by folks who have evacuated from the east and live at the camp. They come from eastern and southern Ukraine as the fighting has shifted there.
There are about 100 persons living longer term at the camp and over 100 others live in the homes of the people of the churches.
Some are now finding semipermanent homes for the duration and finding work in the city or surrounding farms.
The number of folks coming through for short term housing has dwindled significantly as the war has settled into a more concentrated area in the east and south. Our partners are prepared in case the war changes and more flee their homes.
Thanks be to God some people, who are able, have begun to return to their homes is regions where the enemy has been pushed out.
But the need for food to feed those under attack and even feed those who fight back has not decreased. We are so grateful for the ongoing support of our generous donors who, in concert with our ingenious partners in Ukraine, are making a huge difference in so many lives.
