Consumer products manufacturer Jasco Products is giving $500,000 in charitable funds to help those affected by the war in Ukraine, splitting the amount between charities Samaritan’s Purse and Convoy of Hope.
“The Heart of Jasco is with the people in Ukraine. The stories of families torn being apart and innocent lives put in danger have compelled us to act as quickly as possible. We turned to our charity partners to see where we could make a difference,” Jasco CEO Jason Trice says.
Samaritan’s Purse has opened up an emergency field hospital on the outskirts of Lviv, along with an emergency clinic at the train station, where there are thousands of women and children fleeing the country each day, a company press release explains.
Convoy of Hope has a team on the ground in Poland and is working in 8 countries, including Ukraine, to provide aid. They are supplying people with food, water, shelter, baby supplies, hygiene kits, medical supplies, sleeping mats, and other supplies.
Ethan Forhetz, VP Public Engagement and National Spokesperson for Convoy of hope, says they are incredibly grateful for Jasco’s partnership and generosity.
