I have some exciting news to share. We are resuming shipments of emergency supplies to Ukraine.
Five containers are scheduled to go to Ukraine in the next couple of months, with more planned later this year. The containers will travel by ship to Rotterdam and then by truck through Germany, Poland and into Ukraine.
Ukraine has a massive need, and we need your help filling these containers. We have many comforters (thank you to our comforter knotting groups and individuals who have been sending us thousands of comforters). But, we need relief kits, hygiene kits and especially soap. Please go to mcco.ca/kits for details of kit contents.
If you, your church or your community group want to support this effort, material aid donations can be dropped off at our offices or thrift shops or funds can be donated and we will purchase the necessary items. You can donate online, call the office (519-745-8458) or send a cheque to MCC, 203-50 Kent Avenue, Kitchener, ON N2G 3R1. Please include "material aid" in the subject line.
I hope you will take some time to pray for these shipments. Please pray that we can gather the necessary supplies and that those supplies reach their destination quickly and safely.
I also want to invite you to drop by our new Material Resources Warehouse on May 28 from noon to 3 PM for a behind-the-scenes tour. You will be able to see how hope and comfort is being shared in the name of Christ in places like Ukraine.
Thank you for your ongoing support. Because of you, we can offer comfort to families facing disaster or crisis and share God's love in a very tangible way.
God bless you as you bless others in the name of Christ,
Church and Community Relations Associate
