Angels never sleep, and neither does our grantmaking. Recently, Americares, which has been meeting the health needs of children and adults affected by the escalating crisis in Ukraine and in surrounding countries, became the recipient of the 15th billion dollar granted through NCF.
As a charity that provides critically needed medicine and medical supplies to people in crisis around the world, Americares says this grant will be used specifically to support its response to the crisis. The organization has already shipped more than 160 tons of medicine and relief supplies to Ukraine and more shipments are planned. They’re also providing safe spaces for Ukrainian women refugees and their children in Poland.
Watch this report on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine direct from Volodomyr, a logistics expert, and his team of volunteers who are working 24/7 to get donated medicines and medical supplies into Ukraine. When asked what his team does when they get tired, he replies, “Angels never sleep.”
NCF is glad to support this effort and all the generous givers who recommend life-saving grants. May we never grow weary in doing good because every grant is a milestone for someone.
