ITMI partners are responding directly to the needs of their contacts, believers and pastors who are still in Ukraine, standing with believers to love and serve those in need.
Some of the refugees aren't leaving the country or haven't left the country yet, but are taking refuge in Ukrainian cities, so pastors and churches in Ukraine have rallied to serve the needy.
A Truckload of Supplies Reaches Ukrainian Refugee Center
Yesterday, ITMI's Adi Ban worked from 4am to 11pm to get a truck of supplies to refugee centers inside Ukraine.
Supply truck loaded and ready to enter Ukraine on Friday. (Today!)
This map shows where Adi and Ema are located in Oradea, Romania, and the two cities where the refugee centers are located, Chernivtsi and Ternopil.
Adi and Ema mentioned working with two centers, each run by a church in that city and a pastor they have contact with.
In the city of Chernivtsi, Pastor Ian "has been instrumental in helping," according to Ema.
Refugees worship inside Pastor Ian's church in Chernivitsi.
In Ternopil, the church with the refugee center is led by Pastor Nikolai.
At one of the centers on Wednesday, Pastor Ilya helped fill a truck with mattresses which will travel towards Kyiv, hopefully today (Friday).
On Tuesday, a previous shipment from Romania that the Bans were involved with, arrived at the refugee center safely!
The shipment on Tuesday and today's shipment were funded by donations from ITMI supporters, as well as by believers in Romania.

Supplies arrived safely in the refugee center parking lot!
This support is headed straight to the hands of faithful pastors that Adi and Ema are in contact with and have relationships with.
It will be used by believers to faithfully demonstrate the love and care of Jesus to the hurting in Ukraine, and they couldn't have done this without the outpouring of support from their brothers and sisters in Christ!
Here's a word of thanks and update to ITMI supporters from Adi Ban!
