Assumption Parish purchased an ambulance for Ukraine

In response to the tragic humanitarian crisis in Ukraine,  the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish in Perth Amboy, NJ  of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia recently purchased an ambulance to help save the lives of Ukrainians.  With the assistance of Bishop Hryhoriy Komar, Auxiliary Bishop of Sambir-Drohobych Eparchy in Ukraine, an ambulance has been purchased in Italy with the donation from the  Medical Career Institute, NY and proceeds from the New Year’s Dance (Zabava) fundraiser that took place in the parish on December 31, 2022. An ambulance for Ukraine as it defends itself against Russia’s invasion was purchased for 13,000 euros ($14,500) and was delivered to the city of  Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine for the A7015  Tank Brigade.  God Bless America and God Protect Ukraine!
