The Archdiocese of Liverpool recently set off on its seventh trip to Ukraine as part of its #Liverpool4Ukraine appeal.

The trip, which set off on 16 April 2024, is the latest in the archdiocese’s support of Ukraine. It has been over two years since the Russian invasion, a month later, the first trip was completed.

The latest supply was made possible thanks to donations from The Brick, Wigan, the Archdiocese of Liverpool and its partners Greenmount Projects.

In total, 120 boxes of aid will be making the trip over to Ukraine, including seven pallets which have toiletries/sanitary products, food, toys, blankets and bedding, dried food and medical aid. As well as that, there will also be Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), sanitizer and body bags.

The aid was gratefully received by Andrew Quinlan on behalf of Bishop Gregory Komar from the Ukrainian diocese of Sambir-Drohobych. As the auxiliary bishop of the diocese, with a close association with the Archdiocese of Liverpool, Bishop Gregory played a crucial role in distributing the goods across the Lviv region of western Ukraine.

Chief Operating Officer Martin Miller said: “It’s always a privilege to be able to help the people of Ukraine in this way.

“Since the Russian invasion, people have been displaced, and feeling that they have lost everything. We hope that by continuing to help in this way, we can help give them a boost.”

The latest trip was also a chance to show the people of Ukraine that they are not alone. Whether it be through prayer, or donating something physical or financial, the people of the archdiocese, not for the first time, have got behind the people of Ukraine, and made a meaningful impact in their lives.

Donations are very much still welcome; you can do so here.
