Subject: Humanitarian Relief Ukraine
Sai Ram Everyone,
Due to the conflict occurring in Ukraine, many people are suffering.
Globally, non-governmental organizations have mobilized humanitarian relief efforts to
render assistance to the desolate Ukrainians victims and to the distressed refugees in
Communities and organizations in the sheltering countries are in critical need of supplies
including clothing, food, hygiene items, sleeping bags, tents, toiletries, etc.
By Swami’s Grace and Blessings, after surveying the victims’ needs, the Sai Disaster
Response Team of SSSGC has taken initiative to research ways in which assistance can be provided to
local Ukrainian churches and organizations which have means to transport
the needed supplies (listed in the attachment) to the affected areas.
We have identified several private organizations that are facilitating supply delivery. Until the SSSGC establishes contact with local Sai centers and trusted contacts to establish our own drive, the following may be worthy of consideration for those who feel compelled to send assistance. We as an organization are not directly or officially involved in the collection or distribution with these organizations:
