People gathered at St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Yonkers on Saturday to pray and lend their support for those fighting in the Ukraine.
The church, which also put on a concert fundraiser, made it its mission to fund the purchase of medical supplies, medicine, trucks and bulletproof vests. Members told News 12 the supplies will be delivered to Ukraine by way of volunteers in Poland.
"I'm very proud of Ukrainians,” said Iryna Discipio of the Revived Soldiers Ukraine group. “They have very little defensive weapons. They are standing up for their homes.”
Those who came to the event are praying for peace and protection as Russia steps up its ongoing attack on the country.
Millions have fled Ukraine, but there are many still left behind who are fighting in defiance of the soviet aggression and in defense of their homeland.
