Ukrainian women rest, get warm and contact loved ones from a K of C tent in Hrebenne after crossing the border March 5. Members of the Knights of Columbus in Poland assembled more than 10,000 Easter care packages, which were distributed to displaced families in Ukraine during Holy Week to help them celebrate Easter. Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly was on the ground to help with the distribution. Cross Catholic Outreach and its partners have also aided the refugees throughout the war.

‘We’re in this for the long haul,’ in terms of physical and spiritual aid, entities promise.
