The ambulance for Ukraine

It’s been over a year since Russia invaded Ukraine, and the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish in Perth Amboy, NJ of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia,  has all this time been trying to  help those who are wounded, bleeding and injured by Russian bombs and bullets.
A few months ago, after making a report to the parish about an ambulance purchased in March, Fr. Ivan Turyk  was approached by  parishioners Bohdan and Halyna Jasinski (Medical Career Institute, NY) who offered a donation of $15,000  to purchase another ambulance. The vehicle was purchased in Italy by the their charitable donation and recently handed over to the Ukrainian Military Brigade A4576.
The ambulance is already being used in the front lines, transporting wounded to the military hospital in Dnipro and saving the lives of those who are giving their all to save the lives behind them.
The purchase of the ambulance was a collaborative effort of people from three countries – the USA, Italy and Ukraine. We are very grateful to Bishop Hryhoriy Komar, Auxiliary Bishop of Sambir-Drohobych Eparchy in Ukraine, for the logistics of the process and for providing a driver. We are especially thankful to Fr. Vasyl Verbitskyy from Ferrara, Italy for the actual purchase and a smooth transfer of the vehicle from Italy to Ukraine.
Thanks to all volunteers in Italy and in Ukraine who packed the ambulance with medical supplies and additional critical equipment before it was sent to the front line.  The recently purchased ambulance is literally a lifeline for many defenders of Ukraine.
Thank you all, for your solidarity, and may God bless you and your families for standing up with Ukraine.
