Two women on the front lines in Ukraine talk about helping women and children

Job :

ST. LOUIS – We continue to update what’s happening on the front lines in L’viv, Ukraine, as we chat with two women helping women and children trying to escape war.

The Ukraine Partnership Foundation is a 501c3 that started in St. Louis and is now funded worldwide. They support the Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary in L’viv which has now become a vital refugee center for up to 500 women and children a day.

The families arrive in L’viv as they flee the eastern part of Ukraine where there is no security. They seek to flee to Poland or western Ukraine where Russia has so far not attacked. The crowds of people are increasing every day.

Two of the women who are on the UBTS team tell FOX 2 they see tired and confused women. They leave their house and take a suitcase and their children.

Their husbands are forced to stay because they are not allowed to leave Ukraine. UBTS provides a place to sleep, food, medicine and transportation.

One of the women says she had to get her best friend 8 months pregnant alone on a crowded train. The two women say they plan to stay in L’viv and help the refugees for as long as possible.

The organization has seen donations increase but still needs help. The Ukraine Partnership Foundation is providing financial support so the seminary can get the supplies it needs to help the families.
