Vlad Yurishko has sent this report along with photos about the work of LifeNets and the Salvation Church in Western Ukraine on their mission to Kamyshany in the Kherson region where there has been devastation from the war as well as the breaching ot the Kakhovka Dam on the 6th of June 2023, causing extensive flooding along the lower Dnieper river in the Kherson Oblast. The dam was under the control of the Russian military, which seized it in the early days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
I have visited Kamyshany in 1997 with Maurice Frohn. We helped resettle several hundred people from Tajikistan who were persecuted by the Taliban at that time. Now this. That story is told at https://lifenets.org/my-first-encounter-with-the-taliban-in-1997/
We thank everyone who has contributed to alleviate the suffering from this ongoing tragedy.

Good afternoon, Mr. Kubik.
Unfortunately, the horrors of war continue to destroy the lives of thousands of Ukrainians. However, thanks to such foundations as LifeNets and sacrificial people, at least a small part of people feel God's grace and mercy through the help provided to them.
Today, LifeNets through these same people provides the necessary needs of the surrounding residents of the district.
Our brothers from Khust (LifeNets volunteers) brought the aid to the church in Kamyshany, where the needy come and take what they need. Residents of Kherson district are VERY grateful for food, medicines, blankets, pillows, mattresses, hygiene products, and drinking water purification products (which are necessary after the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station). All this and much more was provided to people thanks to the support of LifeNets Inc.
Today we have prepared the next humanitarian cargo in Germany and will soon send it to the LifeNets warehouse in Zakarpattia region, and from there the brothers will deliver it to the needy in the east of the country.
We are sincerely grateful to all the caring people who support our work through the LifeNets Foundation.
