Dear friends!

Thank you for supporting our project “Warm Shoes for Christmas”. It was implemented thanks to your support!

We are happy to inform you that we were able to raise $5855 (134 680 UAH), which is more than initially planned! The gathered amount allowed us to purchase and distribute 1 038 pairs of warm shoes. Just look how the cargo looked just before the delivery! And this is only a part of the whole load.

obuv-popasnaya_1It was especially enjoyable for us to send these shoes because they weren’t “just another humanitarian effort”. Each pair was purchased according to the list for a special person living in eastern Ukraine.

We sent the warm shoes to Krasnogorovka, Rubezhnoye, Berdiansk, Zaporozhye, Avdeyevka, Zolotoye, Bakhmut, Popasna, Artyomovo, Maryinka, Severodonetsk, Mironovsky, Antonovka and Kurakhovo cities of Luhansk and Donetsk region.

When giving out the shoes, we  were sending the warmest Christmas wishes to every recipient and trying to give them a part of God’s love. Many were so touched with such care and thanked us for the timely help.

Some people put the shoes on right away and walked home wearing them. The children were running around the hall happy about having the new boots.

The shooting team of Sergey Demidovish made a short video on distribution of the shoes inKrasnogorovka city (Donetsk region).

Internally displaced people temporarily living in Berdyansk and Zaporozhye also received the warm gifts.

Here is a note from them: “This help was so timely and greatly needed in such a cold and muddy weather! We thank all of the kind people for having such a great love in your hearts. We wish you peace and wonderful blessings in all of your deeds”.

76 pairs of children’s shoes were sent to the orphanage in Severodonetsk city. 6 pairs of shoes were delivered to the  family-type children’s home in Kudryashovka village.

We would like to thank all of our dear friends and partners and especially mention to:

We just remind that “CBN-Emmanuil” continues to help the people from the South-East of Ukraine. At the moment because of the cold winter, people in the East are need the potbelly stoves (stoves for heating and cooking).

The potbelly stoves are vitally important for many people in the East!
