Praised be Jesus Christ!

Summer is passing, and the new school year will start tomorrow. Yesterday we were saying goodbye to this wonderful time of the year in Nalyvaykivka near Makariv with the local children, and a little later the children from the nearby village of Pochepin joined us, so together with a hundred kids in a joyful and festive atmosphere we said to the summer days: “See you in nine months!” We really want to bring joy and carefree summer peace to the lives of these children, marked by war, fear and suffering…

However, for us adults, the arrival of autumn reminds us of our needs! Many houses in these villages are damaged and need serious renovation: in Pochepin, out of 70 houses, 20 houses are completely destroyed, in Nalyvaykivka the russians destroyed 30 houses. Throughout the summer, we helped with the renovation of damaged buildings. We are still waiting for the purchase of materials for the renovation of the roofs – we thank the Orla Straż Foundation for the enormity of the work done and we expect that hundreds of buildings will be covered with new roofs before the cold and winter come, so that families can take refuge in their homes, where it will be dry and warm!

In the last three days, we sent 618 food parcels (about 4,610 kg) with medicines and food to Chernihiv and Kherson.

Already on the last day of summer you can feel the fresh breath of autumn: nights and mornings are already cold. Thank you for the energy supplements to food rations from the foundation of the Polish Mobile Hospitals, which we donated to our Defenders!

I thank everyone who tries to be with us in these days of the fire test through which our country and our society are going! Every day I thank God for each of our benefactors, volunteers… May Jesus bless you all!
