GREAT NEWS!! I've got leads on vans and buses to acquire in Poland and it looks like we'll be able to get a vehicle for our humanitarian needs for under $20k.
I've heard from contacts in Ukraine that they need medicines as those supply lines are running thin, food for children and babies, food for civilians, water, and DIAPERS. Lots of diapers!
- More updates soon as I arrive in Warsaw!
UPDATE 20 MARCH 2022
- I've been getting more intel from on the ground at the border and it looks like we'll be able to secure a vehicle in Poland for much cheaper than originally planned. What they're doing to extract refugees from inside Ukraine right now is to get a hold of regular civilian van. I'm assembling a database of people still inside Ukraine who wish to get out or need supplies. Please keep the names and contacts coming of those who are in need.
When we surpass the amount needed to secure the vehicle, then we'll use this money to fill those vans with supplies for our mission into Ukraine.
Look at it this way... Everyone seems to be wondering what they could possibly do to help people over there in Ukraine. Let's channel that desire to help into this effort to sponsor a bus or many buses to get as many people out as possible. I just wanted to put that little idea in your head and I'm certain good people everywhere will respond.
Thank you everyone!
Keep up with the journey on social and youtube @markjlindquist and requests for specific supplies will come once I'm boots on the ground in Poland/Ukraine.
Thank you all for taking action to help these people in their time of need!
