On January 22, 2001, the U.S. State Department awarded LifeNets the ability to ship four forty-foot containers to Ukraine at no charge.  We plan to ship some humanitarian aid to Western Ukraine and some to the Chernobyl area to help with victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occurred nearly 15 years ago.

We want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of these projects.  More information about the specifics of these programs will be coming. 

We are now collecting for a container to go to Chernobyl from Neosho, Wisconsin.

Katie Swenson is project manager for the Chernobyl container from Wisconsin.
