Chalice of Mercy Container Finally Released March 2014!

Published December 2, 2014 by Valentyna in Containers Of Medical Supplies

Dearest Friends,
March 5th was the beginning of Lent, the holy season that helps us to come closer to Our Jesus, to His Heart, so that together with Him we might come closer to Our Heavenly Father, who loves us and is waiting for us to open our hearts more fully to Him. This day also brought absolutely wonderful, long-awaited news which I am so happy to share with you!
One year, 4 months and 7 days ago, Chalice of Mercy with your help shipped a 40-ft. container of Medical Supplies to the Orphanage in Kalinovka, the Hospice of St. Michael the Archangel in Zaporozhye, and the Canossian Sisters of Charity in Vinniza. We had begun to collect the items to be shipped to Ukraine in 2012, from the Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach of Springfield, IL. All the wonderful people who worked there were incredibly patient and caring, and they worked hard to help us accomplish everything that needed to be done. A very big thank you to all this wonderful team that is working with the Franciscan Sisters!
When the container arrived in Zaporozhye on December 8, 2012, it was put into storage at the local Red Cross organization, whose director is Silin Konstantin. It was generous of him to allow the medical equipment to be stored for so long.
Finally our container was released by the local government and we are free to distribute it to the places where it is intended to be given. Yesterday we worked much to load several trucks with wonderful necessary goods. We wouldn’t have been able to do it if not for the help of Albertine Brother Veslav who came with a team of young men who they care for. It was a great providence from God, for I thought : We only have one day to distribute this, because Mr. Konstantin of the Red Cross says another container from Switzerland is arriving tomorrow – Dear Father God, help us, we need your help.hough there is so much unrest in Ukraine, my beloved country, still many good things are happening.

Fr Andry helped organize the truck drivers and much more. He has always been a big part of Chalice of Mercy’s work in Ukraine, he is simply the right hand man – and the wise head, too! He is simply always there to do any work needing to be done. Our truck drivers were also so good, ready to give a helping hand, so all of this was true Providence.

The Canossian Sisters already received their truck  🙂 .

The hospice has already begun to unpack everything and to clean one year and 4 month’s dust from the medical equipment. They were truly so happy to receive such necessary medical equipment.

The Director of Kalinovka Orphanage, Nikolay Viktorovich, is a great man! This year in Kalinovka there are a little over 30 children, all of them older. Those who were younger or bed-ridden now live in other orphanages in Zaporozhye or the surrounding regions. Many things in the container were for the younger children, so these items will be given to those other orphanages, with the rest being taken to Kalinovka, most likely on March 17.
This whole process has been a great struggle, but now it is a great happiness to see these treasures finally being given to the dear children with special needs and the elderly at the hospice, who have been waiting and who are so in need of our care.
I want to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful mission, all of you who helped to collect the items for this container, those who made donations for it to be shipped, and those who tirelessly prayed for it to go through customs and be released.
People helped us from all over the United States. I truly believe that the people of America are the most generous people, always ready to respond to the needs of others. So I pray, and all of us who are in the Mission of Chalice of Mercy pray, that each and every one of you might receive many rewards and blessings from Our Heavenly Father.
With much love and prayer, Always yours through the hearts of Mary and Jesus,
Chalice of Mercy
Valentyna
