This week at Hope for Ukraine (HFU) was filled with impactful activities and heartfelt initiatives across various regions of Ukraine. Our team, propelled by a mission of compassion and support, worked diligently to bring aid and joy to many.
The week began with the delivery of winter clothing and children’s products to families in the Sumy region on December 11th. This initiative provided much-needed warmth and comfort to those facing the harsh winter conditions. On December 12th, our volunteers delivered food and winter supplies to defenders on the frontline, demonstrating our solidarity and gratitude for their bravery. The same day, we also reached out to a village in the Kherson region, providing residents with essential food kits.
The Christmas Joy project, a special endeavor by HFU, officially kicked off on December 13th. Our team joyously delivered Christmas gifts to children at a school for kids with special needs, a group we have proudly supported over the past two years. On December 14th, the spirit of creativity and learning was alive in our after-school arts and crafts program, where children made Christmas ornaments, bringing festive cheer to hundreds of children across Ukraine.
The momentum of giving continued on December 15th, with our team planning to distribute over 1,500 gifts to children all over Ukraine. Additionally, residents in the Kherson region received fresh vegetables from our volunteers. On December 16th, in the Dnipro region, 100 families with small children were provided with baby food and diapers, addressing the critical needs of the youngest among us. Concluding the week, our partners assembled and distributed 70 food kits for internally displaced individuals on December 17th.
