These photos were taken in the recently liberated Kharkiv and Donetsk oblasts, Ukraine. Hundreds of small villages like the ones seen below have been occupied by the Russian Federation forces for 7 months. During this time these people have experienced famine, thefts of personal items, and on the spot executions.
Our volunteers delivered clothing, food, clean drinking water, washing powder, and antibiotics. These supplies were donated by Ukrainians and generous benefactors abroad. Small villages are often neglected by the larger NGO’s and the international press, since they are far more hazardous to travel to and are not marketable to media back at home.
At Cross Azure our mission focus is taking care of Ukrainians who have been neglected and to make sure no one is forgotten. — We could do more, with your help. Please be generous! And donate!
