Your donation funds 100% of the refugee’s transportation, lodging, and airfare to the destination of their loved ones. Also, we are helping refugees out of tents and into warm homes of Polish families through our connection with the Polish churches.
  • Stability housing: With our Polish partners, your donation is renting additional housing facilities to refugees who are unable to find temporary housing through Polish families. We are funding 100% of their housing, food, and transportation needed.
  • Non-Ukrainian refugees: We have identified a special class of refugees where the needs are much more complicated due to visa situations and language barriers. With your donation, we are actively working with various agencies to provide a service that other NGOs may not currently provide.
  • Bstrong has raised 10M and counting
  • Bstrong has now committed to 15M in supplies & 100 containers.
  • 550K in medical aid, 100K hygiene kits in transit, 225K supplies for Maldova, 10,000 families to be relocated….more soon.
  • With your help and donations, we are able to scale these operations, evacuate women and children, relocate refugees, and provide dignity and safety to those who have been traumatized.

  • As always, 100 percent goes to the effort.
