As of March 8, 1200 EST
Pro Vita has received 59 children and 60 elderly Ukrainians. 51 children are being housed in Valenii and Posesti; 8 are in the center in Bosotani. Many of the children were apparently institutionalized under primitive conditions and have untreated autism. We are working with a local autism therapy center to identify and buy therapeutic toys for the kids with autism. The elderly are temporarily in a hostel in Valenii as the Tansases try to find accommodations.
Three families of mothers with their children are due tonight. The children who were due last night actually were tricked and ended up in Russia.
There is limited space left at Pro Vita. Fr Sean is working on making an emergency trip to PV next week and he will carry the autism toys and whatever else the Tanases identify as needed.
Again, this is NOT a fund-raising plea but we think you want to know how your financial support and the PV directors and staff are helping Ukrainians.
