Amid concern over new missile strikes and ongoing prayer by Pope Francis for Ukraine, hundreds of youth and families in the war-torn country recently received nutritional support from the U.S.
Food for 360 people was first shipped to Salesians in Poland and then transported to Zhytomyr, a city in the north of the western half of Ukraine.
The food aid is the result of a partnership between Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of the Salesians of Don Bosco, and Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit Christian organization committed to “feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit.”
The Teterivka Orphanage and Boarding House, the Vsesvit Salesian School, and Korostyshiv Catholic Church received the goods. Over two weeks, Salesians distributed approximately 48 boxes of rice to the people connected to these organizations.
