Mariupol is one of the biggest сities in East Ukraine. There used to be more than 500,000 people before the war broke out. However, now the сity is mostly destroyed. But those that could not leave remain to survive day by day.
The city has no gas, electric power, or water. Many people are living in the basement of buildings. They have to cook with firewood. As winter approaches, it is very important to provide them with a hot meal.
Ukrainian authorities reported outages in nearly 600 towns and villages, and Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko said that shelling had once again disrupted the power supply to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, forcing it to switch to emergency diesel generators. The Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that it had specifically targeted Ukraine’s “energy system facilities.”
The Kherson region in the south and the area around Bakhmut in the east continue to be the front lines where combat is still the most intense.
Numerous vulnerable people in the nation are housed in dwellings that are in poor condition or in structures that are not weatherproof. Refugees living outside of Ukraine are enduring their first winter away from home; many have left behind their families, social networks, and winter necessities.
The lives and homes of Ukrainians are being destroyed right in front of our eyes, and many of us are watching from a distance and wondering what we can do to assist.
Food for Life Global is on the ground supplying winter essentials, urgent financial aid for the most in need, and assisting in strengthening homes and shelters to withstand the harsh cold.
Your assistance can make sure that displaced Ukrainian families are warm and safe.
The time to offer assistance is now as the combat intensifies.
