Baking bread to feed the hungry at the front lines

March 29, 2022 -
Everyday volunteers in a small church in Klevan, Ukraine bake between 200-250 loaves of bread that is shipped via humanitarian buses to Kyiv, Kharkiv, Sumy Oblast, and other areas of Ukraine that have had food supply lines disrupted and cut by active battle.

Mission Without Borders supplies the church with the flour for the bread, purchased and shipped thanks to donations to the Ukraine Emergency Appeal from supporters around the globe.

Mission Without Borders staff member, Kateryna, lives in Klevan and is also a member of the church. She oversees the baking operations as part of her ministry with the church.

“I’m happy I can use my hobby skills to help others, our dear people in other regions who endure this terrible war and unbearable sufferings. We couldn’t imagine one month ago that someone here could suffer from hunger. We pray day and night for our people and for our country and do whatever we can to help them and save their lives”, Kateryna said.
