Ivanka Trump helped donate one million meals to refugees on the Polish-Ukrainian border, amounting to 158,400 pounds of food for Europe.
Former president donald trumpThe eldest daughter of has partnered with the UPS Foundation and several non-profit organizations including City Serve, City of Destiny, the Pentecostal European Fellowship and many local church organizations to send the supplies.
“The people of Ukraine showed inspiring courage and resilience during Russia’s invasion of their country,” she told Fox News. “As is often the case, pain and hardship are borne disproportionately by the most vulnerable.”
“With this food, I hope to provide a small source of comfort and nourishment to Ukrainians who are suffering so much,” Trump added.
Local organizations will deliver meals to refugees inside Poland and those still in Ukraine. Meal choices came from food preferences advised by aid workers in Ukraine.
Senior Pastor of City of Destiny Church, Paula White-Caintold Fox News that she was trying to connect the food shortage in the United States to that in war-torn Ukraine.
“I got a call from Ivanka Trump. She and I worked closely together in the White House to start a national hunger relief program called Farmers to Families. When I told Ivanka what we were doing, she sprang into action like only Ivanka can,” White-Cain said.
Other celebrities like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, have also contributed to helping Ukrainian refugees. The celebrity couple launched a “Stand with Ukraine” fundraiser in early March and have since raised more than $35 million in cooperation with Flexport and Airbnb.
“We are raising funds to support a relief effort that will have an immediate impact and provide much-needed refugees and humanitarian aid to the region,” Kutcher said.
“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for this support,” said Kunis, from Ukraine. “While this is far from a solution to the problem, our collective effort will provide a soft landing for so many as they move forward into their uncertain future.”
