Mercy Mission for Ukrainian Refugees

Over 10,000 Ukrainian refugees enter Poland every day to escape the horrors of the Russian invasion. Many of us want to help the cause without really knowing how 

I’ve decided to go there myself, along with a couple friends, but we need your help to purchase supplies for Ukrainian refugees.

Who are We? 
We’re three retired guys looking to make a difference in the world. Greg Ryan and Rob Grede live in the Milwaukee area. Dale Wilson lives in Santa Barbara. 

The Plan 
We fly to Vienna, Austria, rent a vehicle, and fill it with supplies the Ukrainian refugees can use right now. Then we drive to Przemyśl, Poland, where 6,000 arrive every day. 

Our Rotary contacts there tell us that the items needed include food (energy bars and ready-to-eat foods), clothing (shoes and t-shirts), and medical supplies (toothbrushes, tampons, tourniquets). That’s what we’re buying in Vienna.

Our Promise 
We promise 100% of your donation will be used for food, clothing and medical supplies for Ukrainian refugees. We pay for all our expenses – air travel, vehicle rental, gas, food and accommodations – out of our own pockets.

Thank you for reading this far, and thanks even more if you can help us deliver this humanitarian aid. We will provide a day-to-day diary of our journey to any who wish to follow us, including photos. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about this project. Just email me at
