Restoring hope and dignity
Since 1998, Global Aid Network (GAiN) has addressed the needs of the poor and suffering through a demonstration of God’s love. Around the world, GAiN is: helping women start their own businesses; providing clean water to rural areas where the need is great; assisting victims of conflict and calamity; supporting destitute women and fatherless children in need of loving care; and providing hope in many other ways.
Help the People of Ukraine
Russia began its military invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, 2022. In contrast to the military clashes since 2014, the entire country is now affected. The attacks are carried out from the north (Belarus), east (People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, Russian Federation), and south (Crimea, Transnistria). On the first day of the outbreak of war, mainly airports, railroad stations, and military bases were destroyed. The attacks also hit parts of the civilian population. The situation changes hourly and is unpredictable.
Global Aid Network (GAiN), through our offices in Germany and the Netherlands, responded immediately. To date, GAiN has shipped 70 shipments as part of the Ukraine Crisis Response. These shipments contain food, water, blankets, pillows, diapers, clothes, hygiene items, and many other needed items. The goods have been sent to Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, and into Ukraine. The value of goods shipped is well over $2.4 million dollars. We are thankful for God’s provision so far, and continue to pray for Ukranians who are displaced.
“God’s call in my life is to help meet the needs of other women.”
