Ways to help Ukraine

Ukraine crisis

With the current crisis devastating Ukraine, Maya’s Hope is providing continued support for families of children with special needs in the region. As the fighting intensifies, and we receive news back from the families in our program, Maya’s Hope is more determined than ever to help.

 

How is Maya’s Hope helping?

Maya’s Hope is distributing assistance to our families, partners, and facilitators in the region for medicines, hygiene, food, and gas. Our partners are distributing to families and foster homes as well as to a regional children’s hospital in southeastern Ukraine.

We are sending assistance to individual families in our program to ensure they have their immediate needs. Several of the orphanages supported by Maya’s Hope are in occupied territory.

More funding is needed to be able to ship and distribute items to families who are staying in place.

3 Ways you can continue to help:

  1. Donate to the Maya’s Hope Ukraine Emergency fund

What Maya’s Hope is providing:

Medicines

Many of the children in the Maya’s Hope program are medically frail and require anticonvulsants and other medication. Your donations allow us to send vital medicines to these children.

 

Vitamins

Medically frail children require vitamins, as in many cases they are not able to absorb vitamins directly from their food.

Formula

Maya’s Hope provides nutritious formula for babies who are formula fed and for toddlers who lack proper nutrition. Having access to high caloric and nutrient dense formula can mean the difference between life and death for many of these children.

Food, Water and Gasoline

During a war, items such as meat, grocery items, gasoline, and water can become scarce, and in short supply. When there is a supply the prices are too high for the families to be able to afford them. Maya’s Hope provides families with an individual emergency fund to be able to purchase their immediate needs.

Hygiene and baby items

Babies need diapers. Last year, Maya’s Hope provided 47,000 diapers changes for children! We provide diapers and wipes for mothers of children with special needs as well as to orphanages and foster homes.

Help where needed most

Whether it is a special request for a gift of a football for a child during a time of war, or for a special wheel chair to enable a child to sit unaided, Maya’s Hope gives hope to children and families in Ukraine.
