May 13th 2022 Ended my day yesterday with a visit to my friends Natasha and David Halbout. Grateful for the delicious mint tea from their garden and yummy French cookies. Nice to sit and relax.
David and Natasha have dedicated themselves to Ukraine relief and to getting supplies to Ukraine. You can read about their efforts and story here: https://tworivertimes.com/red-bank-couple-returns-after.../
They are looking for more support to pay for 60 first aid kits for the medics in the East of Ukraine.
From David and Natasha: We are planning to send everything next week. We already paid all the necessary supplies with our own money: $6700. Helping Ukraine is defending Democracy, Freedom, and helping a country against tyranny. My heart is breaking when I see all the destruction and pain inflicted on the people of Ukraine. For our second round of Donation, we are going to send 60 first aid kits that will help first responders to save lives by controlling massive blood loss from missing limbs or open fractures caused by the shrapnel in the Russian bombs in the hottest spots in Ukraine. Our Trusted contact Taras Fito transmitted to us. If you want to read more about what his organization is doing In Ukraine, please read my previous posts. Maiia, Natasha’s niece, went to the Red Bank Library and read to us this Emily Dickinson's poem: "If I can stop one Heart from breaking I shall not live in vain If I can ease one Life the Aching Or cool on Pain Or help one fainting Robin Unto his Nest again I shall not live in Vain." Each kit cost us $110 to put together. Your help would be greatly appreciated. You can send any amount of money by - Venmo David-Halbout - Zelle 732-403-0400 or - Paypal https://paypal.me/DHalbout (option send money to a friend) Please share this post. Thank you very much. David Halbout.
