The churches in our parishes are helping Katie Fowler of KTs Craft Warehouse in Edde Cross Street in her fantastic efforts to help the people of Ukraine.  Already lorry loads of aid from people in and around Ross has been sent across to the border and next week, Katie herself is leaving to help with the humanitarian effort.

Katie will leave to travel to Romania on Tuesday 12th April and will be staying at a university in Suceava. She will then be ferrying refugees from the border with Ukraine to Suceava. Translators, Diana and Vilius will be helping with the form filling required for the refugees and with the cooking for the many refugees arriving.  There are many families of children and even the little things like a packet of sweets can help to bring a smile to their faces in such appalling ties.

The Mayor of Vinnytsia will take Katie to the hospital in the city where Ross has sent aid on a previous trip. This hospital is being used as a military hospital and Katie hopes to be able to supply generators as when the power goes off as it regularly does, it is difficult to keep patients on machine alive without power.  In addition, aid collected this week will be sent to Valkiv Central District Hospital in Kharkiv where there is a massive shortage of food and equipment for the many new born babies.

No donation is too small.  If you can help Ross support these projects, please do. Thank you.
