Since the Russian attack on Ukraine, millions of refugees have poured out of Ukraine into neighboring countries and many of the refugees are ending up in Poland. The Polish people have opened their hearts and homes to the people of Ukraine – but they also need help.
We are lucky to have church members with direct ties to Poland. Renditions Polish Pottery of Weston, MO imports their beautiful pottery from Boleslawiec, Poland, and they have been working with their close ties and contacts there to assess the best local organizations to support. The foundation, "Health Support" has been operating adjacent to the town hospital in Boleslawiec where the pottery is made. We also have church members who are donating Red Angus beef to support a fundraising raffle (Rock Ridge Farm).
A special account has been dedicated at Weston Christian Church to collect funds for the refugees that are in Boleslawiec and to purchase medical supplies for a hospital in Ukraine. In the Boleslawiec hospital there are two resident doctors from Ukraine that are in contact with hospitals directly across the border in Ukraine. They are caring for Ukrainian refugees in Poland as well as staying in contact with their colleagues back home to assess their needs. "Health Support" is local and trusted to use the funds to support those in need. Their accounting is public, and each year they release a detailed document listing how they have managed the funds. This is a local, on the ground, relief group. Here is a link to their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Funda...
The Weston Christian Church has teamed up with both Renditions and Rock Ridge Farm to raise some funds to help this effort. Please consider purchasing a raffle ticket to be eligible for two (2) separate quarters (1/4) of beef. So, there will be two winners, each for a 1/4 beef (approximately 70 pounds of assorted cuts per quarter - Red Angus grass fed beef). Each beef quarter will be processed by Paradise Meats (Trimble, MO) and will be USDA inspected. Local pickup only.
The drawing will be June 6th, 2022 and the two winners will be announced that day.
