According to the United Nations, more than 80 percent of Ukrainians live below the poverty line.
By the standards of the United Nations, if a person spends on lodging and meals less than $5 a day, and in a month less than $150, he or she lives in poverty. Today the average wage in Ukraine is 1,176 hryvnia, or about $50 a month, which is a dollar and a half a day.
We are supporting the neediest families by providing them grocery packages once a month. These packages put together based on family needs and requests. All of the produce are purchased fresh in the Ukraine and delivered to these families by our staff and volunteers on the ground.
