As the darkness of the Holy and Great Friday settled in the hearts of Ukrainian Orthodox Christians in Ukraine and in fact throughout the world, the clergy and faithful of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA sent a beacon of light – HOPE to their brethren in devasted by the war regions of Eastern and Central Ukraine.

Due to the close cooperation of the Consistory Office of Ministry of the UOC of the USA under the leadership of the hierarchs of the Church with His Eminence Metropolitan Serhiy of Donetsk and Mariupol Eparchy of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, thousands of refugees from Donbas and Mariupol regions of destroyed and devasted towns and villages received Paschal baskets of food in order to bring some sort of normality to the celebration of the Glorious and Bright Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
