Coachella Valley helps charity aid Ukraine disaster relief

It has now been two years since the war in Ukraine began and many charities are still working to provide aid to nearly every region of the country, that includes fixing damaged homes.

The organization "Shelterbox" is providing shelter-repair kits, designed to patch up windows and roofs damaged by blasts. It also provides solar lanterns, cooking sets, and sleeping mats.

Shelterbox says it has received tremendous help from the Coachella Valley but the need in Ukraine is far from over.

 "How has the need in Ukraine changed over these past two years?" News Channel 3's Peter Daut asked Kerri Murray, president of Shelterbox USA.

Murray answered, "Well you had millions of people who fled that actually went back to Ukraine. And so you have people living in damaged homes."

Murray also said, "We've served and supported more than 120,000 people across six projects over the past two years because of the war in Ukraine. Right now, we're bringing essential winter items just to help people survive the winter and meet them in the moment that they're in right now."
