The Patriarchal Economist emphasizes that the Patriarchal Foundation “The Wise Cause” appeared precisely as a response to these devastating consequences of the current war. Today, it is actively implementing three projects which are going to be presented in detail to the Bishops of the Synod:

· 4,500 people evacuated thanks to the Patriarchal Pilgrimage Center of the UGCC from the dangerous regions of Kherson region, Mykolaiv region, and Zaporizhzhia, which today are the most affected by military actions;

· 900 tons of food products formed into food sets;

· 200,000 people from all eastern regions of our country received humanitarian aid in the form of food kits;

· 100 shelters for internally displaced persons cooperate with monasteries of the UGCC, parish communities, and retreat houses.

“Since the number of places to settle internally displaced persons is insufficient, we are launching another project to build modular houses to increase shelter and temporary stay areas. It will allow us to accommodate even more people and respond more effectively to the current needs caused by the brutal war of the Russian aggressor, which it is waging to a large extent against the civilian population,” said the speaker presenting the future development of the foundation.

The Wise Cause Consulting Center’s team today helps dioceses, exarchates, and individual parishes with legal and economic issues to increase efficiency and transparency in assisting those who need it most.

“In turn, the bishops from the eastern regions of our country expressed their gratitude for the significant support and confirmed that the Patriarchal Foundation ‘Wise Cause’ constantly provides them with assistance, either through food kits or the evacuation of people,” said the Patriarchal Economist Fr. Lubomyr Yavorsky.
