In Ukraine, bombings have destroyed and damaged millions of homes leaving families exposed to the elements. Many homes of the families Mission Without Borders works with are not constructed to keep the cold out during the winter months. And this year skyrocketing electricity, wood, and fuel prices are making it more difficult for families to heat their homes and stay warm.
The winter months in Eastern Europe can be brutally cold, and sometimes people are forced to decide what they can afford - food, rent, or heat. This is often the case with many of the seniors we serve, as they stretch everything to make ends meet, but still can't afford wood or oil to heat their homes.
And with so much of the critical infrastructure destroyed in the war, Ukraine is facing an especially brutal winter this year, enduring rolling electrical blackouts, and shortages of gas, food, & fuel.
By joining Mission Without Borders' Winter Walk Challenge, you can help amplify the voices of families struggling in seemingly hopeless circumstances, and provide desperately-needed supplies & aid through our Winter Rescue program.
