THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

The period from March 15-June 15th was unique, as we used your donation toward Clean Birth Kits as part of our Ukrainian Crisis Relief program. GHC packed 41 boxes weighing over 1,200 pounds with nearly 110,000 items with clean birth kits, medical supplies, baby/child clothing, hygiene necessities and family care items. 

 

Volunteers from age 8 to 88 assembled 1,692 custom clean birth kits that included additional items such as diapers, onesies, socks and hand sanitizer.  These kits will provide the supplies needed for safe and clean births in areas badly damaged by the effects of war, potentially saving the lives of over 3,300 Ukranian mothers and their newborns.  

May 15, 2022 - GHC's first donation of 13 boxes (10,357.6 cubic inches/box) with 684 birth kits and other supplies were transported by charter airplane to a distribution center in Lubin, Western Poland.  All goods from Lublin where transferred to refugee areas in Poland, as well as trucked directly into Kyiv, based on where they were needed most.

June 8, 2022 - GHC's second donation of 28 boxes with 988 birth kits and supplies made the journey in a beautiful hand-painted container from Ann Arbor to New York, where it set sail on the vessel "Ever Lucky" on July 3, 2022. The Lucky vessel is expected to arrive in Gdynia, Northern Poland on August 2nd, where it will be picked up and again trucked across the Polish-Ukranian Boarder.

THE CONTAINER

Michigan artists Shingo Brown and Gary Horton researched Ukrainian art and painted murals inspired by Ukraine on two sides of the container that took GHC donations overseas.  Shingo Brown dedicated his mural to Maria Primachenko, the Ukrainian folk artist whose paintings were destroyed at the beginning of the war.  Gary Horton painted a sunflower, Ukraine’s national flower, incorporating his own style as a symbol of rebirth.  The third side was painted by Ann Arbor children and adults with messages of love and support.  Read more at mlive.

The incredible results of this three-month effort are a testament to human kindness, solidarity and the power of goodwill.  We are not only sending a container of donations, but we are also sending symbols of hope and support to the people of Ukraine.

Thank you for your contribution toward the Clean Birth Kit program!
