Since the war in Ukraine began in February 2022, International Relief Teams has provided over $2 million in humanitarian aid and disaster relief to those who need it most in Ukraine and surrounding countries.
Thanks to our generous donors,International Relief Teams also supported an orphanage in Kherson—a city south of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv—while it was under Russian control, out of the reach of international organizations. It was the heroic efforts of several teachers and administrators in Kherson that kept children in this orphanage safe and out of the hands of Russian forces.
And, your donations have now helped to support 478 families with kids from newborn to 18 years old.
In April 2023, we were able to distribute additional food, toys, clothing and cash transfers to these deserving families.
