Assumption Parish and School in Perth Amboy, NJ have been collecting medical supplies for the past month and now we are happy to announce that the first shipment (27 boxes – 987 lb) of medical supplies arrived in Ukraine and was transferred to the medical hospital in the city of Dnipro. Thanks to Bishop Hryhoriy Komar, an Auxiliary bishop of Sambir–Drohobych Eparchy for his assistance with accepting packages and delivering them to Eastern Ukraine, where help is needed the most. Recently, (713 lb) of medical supplies were also shipped to Bishop Bohdan Manyshyn, an Auxiliary Bishop of Stryj Eparchy and (470 lb) of medical supplies were sent to Ivano-Frankivsk hospital. It cost us $2,366 to ship two pallets of supplies.
A big thank you goes to our parishioners Vasyl Kichula and Ganna Kichula for packing all supplies. Thanks also to Meest-America who shipped over 60 boxes of our humanitarian aid packages for Ukraine at a discounted price. Thank you to our many parishioners and friends who so generously contributed to the Humanitarian Aid Fund for Ukraine. Together to Victory!
