The Christian organization, Samaritan’s Purse, has helped reunite Ukrainian refugees with their loved ones in Canada. They airlifted 28 Ukrainians on Sunday on its DC-8 aircraft.
Franklin Graham, head of the Samaritan’s Purse, posted the group’s joyful news on its Twitter account. He shared that they have been delivering tons of food to the devastated country. But, on Sunday, they were on a “special mission.”

“We are bringing 28 Ukrainian refugees from Poland to Canada,” he said. He noted that all rescued persons had loved ones in their new place.
“There are children of all ages, grandmothers, mothers – one of them is even eight months pregnant. God bless them,” he added. “They have been through so much and had to leave behind everything except what they could carry.”
The mother-to-be, Natalia, expressed her gratefulness to the charity organization. She said that the flight was God’s miracle and answer to her prayers.
“We are all in a similar situation,” she shared. “Every person on this plane has been praying for a fresh start, a new life. And then Samaritan’s Purse told us they would help. It is God showing us his love. This is God’s mercy flight.”
Natalia could not contain her happiness that her baby would be born in a “safe country.”
The Christian Post reported that Samaritan’s Purse had delivered 330 tons of relief supplies, including their Emergency Field Hospital, on 13 airlift missions. Along with the field hospital was a team of doctors and nurses who had treated 8,700 patients.
They stated, “In all, we have helped more than 338,000 people by distributing critical relief items such as blankets, hygiene kits, and solar lights. We are also installing community water filtration systems in areas where water sources have been disrupted or contaminated by the conflict.”
Today, Graham encouraged everyone to continue praying for Ukraine. He said, “We need to continue to pray for the people of Ukraine and do everything we can to help them.”
