The money raised goes towards Soup Kitchens that help people in desperate need. The soup kitchens work in partnership with the local church, MWB staff and volunteers, who provide hot, nutritious meals for elderly people and others who are unable to leave their homes. The meals are delivered five days a week and served alongside the good news of the Gospel. “When I first met the elderly people and saw their living conditions, I was distressed. I couldn’t believe that this kind of poverty still exists in our age of comfort and opportunities.''Nina, a 17-year-old student at Sarny Vocational training centre, run by Mission Without Borders (MWB), volunteers at MWB’s Soup Kitchen in Sarny, western Ukraine. The Soup Kitchen has been running for over 14 years, providing meals to the elderly and disabled. Meals are delivered to beneficiaries if they are housebound.
“I saw people who stay at home for months on end and can't take care of even their most basic needs. They literally just exist and survive." - Nina
