Now that winter is approaching, this year’s Ukrainian winter is said to be the worst ever.
Many houses and social facilities have been damaged, and many people cannot even live their daily lives.
Since February 2022, Adra has leveraged its operational base in Ukraine to deliver lifeline assistance to more than 7 million people, including food, shelter and transportation for evacuation.
While delivering support from Japan to Ukraine,
“You’ve come all the way from Japan. Thank you. I’m really grateful not only for receiving the food and continuing to eat it, but also for thinking of me from afar.”
We also have a voice.
