LENEXA, Kan. — The crisis in Ukraine is far from over according to a metro relief organization on the ground helping refugees.
Heart to Heart International said it has delivered shipments of medications and other supplies to help Ukraine, including “one of the largest medical humanitarian shipments that have arrived in Ukraine since the Russian invasion,” according to the country’s health minister.
