BREATHE IN & OUT

War in Ukraine & Humanitarian Aid & Rescue Mission
Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Internationally considered an act of aggression, the invasion has triggered Europe’s largest refugee crisis since World War II, with more than 5 million Ukrainians leaving the country and a quarter of the 44 million population displaced.
The day the war broke out I was in Tartus, Syria on another humanitarian mission. Much to the surprise of many were shocked that Russia invaded Ukraine. I was not surprised at all. It had been in the planning for a year or more. A country does not amass the kind of military machine that Russia has in its arsenal and completely surround the borders of Ukraine (150,000 troops, tank divisions, weapon systems, armaments, etc.) just for the sake of intimidation and saber-rattling. What I was sad to see was the utterly pathetic lame response from the West or should I say the complete lack of international response.
As the Russian troops advanced and started their scorched earth policy it was only then apparent to the international community. Waking up to the horrific images and atrocities of crimes against humanity. It all woke us up to the holy terror being committed by Russian soldiers and Putin’s band of thugs.
My personal eye-witness account gives you a glimpse into my recent experience in Ukraine and humanitarian endeavors around the world. It’s very powerful and thought provoking. Please watch and share.
My next Humanitarian Aid Mission to Ukraine is scheduled for July 1, 2022 and we also plan on doing a follow-up interview after my next mission.
