Each of the them have in dynamic personal stories of the quick moving events as the ware began along with the realities of being a refugee or living in a war torn country at the present moment.


“Ukraine is in great need of humanitarian aid to save lives. But the hope for Ukraine is not stuff from the west, the hope for Ukraine is ‘ICYC’, Jesus,” Rudolf

He has served those in need including orphanages and wounded soldiers in the western region for 10 years. When the war started he already had a network for leaders, orphanages and military hospitals across the west that quickly grew throughout the country.
