A passenger van team, Julia and Nathan, departed Vienna on a resupply and refugee mission to the Solvakia-Ukraine border today. Two independent van teams from St. Barabara’s Church went to the Przemysl, Poland Refugee Center. The VM4U van was supplied with food, medicine, sleeping bags, and other medical supplies partially from donations to St. Barbara’s Church and the remainder VM4U by a stop at METRO to fill the rest of the van. Supplies were delivered to the Vysne Nemecke-Uzhhorod border crossing. The van team continued on to Michalovce, Slovokia Refugee Center where they delived specific supplies donated by Katharina following driver reports of specific supply needs from that Refugee Center. The team found two passengers needing to get to Tel Aviv. These passengers were transported to Vienna International Airport where they departed at 6:00 AM this morning with plane tickets sponsored by a VM4U donor. The van was generously provided by First Aid First Hand, www.firstaid-firsthand.de.
Team Fynn, Angus and Trevor, an independent van team from the UK coordinating with VM4U, transported medical supplies from Krakow, Poland to Przemysl, Poland. Additionally, they have been utilising their van to move people and supplies around the Poland-Ukraine border.
