"We thought everyone had forgotten us, but we are not forgotten."
- An elderly man, 78 years old, Myrne Village, Ukraine

I wish I could adequately convey to you the gratefulness we are hearing from those in Ukraine who are on the receiving end of your prayers and support.

People who felt forgotten are handed food that will feed their family for the week and suddenly they no longer feel alone in this war. Your generous support has paved a way for Mercy Chefs to continue this vital relief mission that has now been underway for nearly two months.

As of yesterday, we surpassed 1.75 million pounds of food and resources delivered directly to those caught in the crossfire of this horrible warAmong the many trips into Ukraine, our team recently traveled to serve an orphanage comparable in size to a large hospital. The orphanage is now the temporary home to children, mothers, and others searching for a safe haven.

With Russia issuing new threats this week, this war still has no end in sight. And that means tens if not hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are relying on Mercy Chefs to continue this lifeline of practical relief. But to do so, I need help from friends like you!

As this war and our relief efforts extend into a third month, will you join with me in going the "extra mile" for those in Ukraine who are on the front lines of this terribly destructive war? Go here to help feed families inside Ukraine while we continue other efforts:

The financial burden for this relief effort is quite serious. Each shipment can cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. But every truck we load at our warehouse on the border directly translates into tangible and even life-saving relief for those on the front lines.

We must continue this relief effort. The conditions for many inside Ukraine are dire. They need our prayers and our support.

Thanks in advance, and God bless,

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs

P.S. I'm hoping to fully fund at least two additional truckloads of food in the next 24-36 hours. If 500 friends join together with each carrying some of the financial load, we can make this happen. Will you help? Go here:
