Press Release 21/12/22
A great big thank you to the people of Lancashire for £8.7 million pounds worth of aid sent to Ukraine through local charity, International Aid Trust.
Lancashire charity, International Aid Trust, has been working in Ukraine for over thirty years and is ideally placed to support people whose lives have been devastated by the war.
The charity, whose offices are in Chorley and warehouse is in Hesketh Bank, has been overwhelmed by the generosity of local people. As soon as the Ukraine Emergency Appeal was launched financial donations and practical aid poured in. Hundreds of people kindly volunteered their time, and churches and Rotary clubs set up collection points across the county.
Rev. Bernard Cocker, CEO and Founder, says:
“Dear friends thank you for your amazing efforts following the invasion on 24th February 2022. The generosity of Lancashire people never ceases to amaze us, and this time you have come up with the goods once again.
With your help we have been able to source, gather, sort, pack, and deliver 8.7 million ££ worth of life saving aid to the victims of this atrocity.
We have worked in Ukraine since the charity began in 1991. We have local staff there who were ready to lead teams from our warehouse in Kiev, delivering your aid to the hardest hit areas in many parts of the country. And it is making such a huge difference. When the invasion began, none of our staff or volunteers fled but stayed behind to help the needy. It only takes 4 – 5 days for the aid leaving our warehouse to arrive in Kiev.
Some of our projects there have been destroyed, but until this invasion has been defeated, we will continue to stand with Ukraine and then going forward we will help with the rebuilding.
Please remember that we still need all the things that you and I take for granted, and we need volunteers in all areas of our work. Please, please keep supporting our efforts.
God bless you all and thanks once again.”

URGENT APPEAL – please follow this link to read the latest news and how you can help https://bit.ly/3pCgp0r
Part of the former Soviet Union, this beautiful country in Eastern Europe, has large areas of unspoilt countryside, mountains, lakes, and sunflower fields. The capital city is Kiev, which is steeped in history and also moving forward as a business and tourist destination.
Our work in Ukraine began in 1991, when Bernard, our CEO and founder visited and saw the horrendous conditions in orphanages, hospitals and ordinary homes following the fall of the Soviet Union. Life in Ukraine is much improved since those days, but there is still poverty and a great need for our work. We work closely with local churches to bring the practical and spiritual gospel to prisoners, AIDS and TB sufferers, elderly people, children and young people in children’s homes and through holiday camps, and to disadvantaged village communities.
