Utah Humanitarian Group Continues to Support Ukraine Amid Ongoing War
A Utah-based non-profit organization called August Mission has been working tirelessly to help Ukraine, which has been embroiled in a devastating war for over a year.
The conflict began after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
Although Ukraine did not ask for assistance, Bruce Roberts, the founder of August Mission, felt compelled to do something to help the war-torn country.
Since then, August Mission has provided doctors, delivered mattresses and medical supplies, and worked on larger initiatives to help displaced refugees.
The organization has raised millions of dollars and donated thousands of sleeping bags, generators, and other essential items to those affected by the conflict.
Scott Holmes, owner of Teton Sports Warehouse, has also helped by opening his facility for the non-profit to continue shipping donations overseas.
Despite the ongoing war and the continued need for assistance, many Americans are experiencing “donation fatigue” and may not be as inclined to support Ukraine.
However, August Mission hopes that Utah residents will continue to support the cause and help Ukrainians rebuild their lives and homes.
The organization’s efforts have already made a significant impact, putting people back in their homes and providing them with much-needed supplies.
As Roberts stated, “Any freedom-loving person should be supporting Ukraine.” The organization’s work is a reminder that even small acts of kindness can make a difference in the lives of those affected by war and conflict.
