Russia's inhumane war against Ukraine produced many dead and wounded. More than 8 million Ukrainian refugees have entered Poland since Russia's February 2022 invasion. About 1.5 million of them have remained in the central European country rather than moving on to other places or returning home amid Europe's biggest refugee crisis since World War II. The Rainbow of Hope Freedom Foundation together with our Benefactors, Volunteers, NGO, and business partners is bringing direct help to Ukrainian refugees through the Project Ukraine. There are two main phases of this project:
Phase #1 – buying local supplies in Poland and EU and immediately distributing them directly to the refugees. They include: Crisis Care Kits, Hygiene Kits, and Travel Snack Packs with bottled water and dry foods. Shipping 40 ft. overseas containers from the U.S. with more Hygiene Kits, Food, Medicine and Medical Supplies, Blankets, etc. – all donated by manufacturers in a perfect brand new condition. These basic necessities are desperately needed by the exhausted, sometimes sick and wounded, refugees who spend tens of hours walking, driving, and on over-crowded trains and buses just to cross the border into safety.
Phase #2 – helping to rebuild Ukraine. Currently we are partnering with other non-profits, businesses, and local governments to build and rebuild new and existing medical facilities, including children's hospital in Western Ukraine. We have already partnered with several trusted NGOs, some of which we've known for many years. We have a great leverage with donated funds, supplies, logistics, and volunteers to bring the most direct help "for the buck” to the Ukrainians. For example, our leverage includes shipping and distributing 40 ft. overseas containers loaded with donated relief supplies and paying only for the freight costs.

During the Sudan War, which officially ended in 2005, tens of thousands of Christians and other non-Muslims were abducted and forced into slavery by Islamist militiamen armed and directed by the Khartoum regime. Since 1995 over 100,000 slaves were liberated in Sudan due to heroic efforts of NGOs, religious organizations, volunteers, and benefactors who provided direct assistance and financial support. However, thousands of people still remain in slavery in Sudan. The Rainbow of Hope Freedom Foundation and our NGO partners enable you to help liberate slaves, reunite them with their families, and provide them with medical assistance and basic living necessities. These include: a tarp for shelter, a cooking pan, a water canister, a mosquito net, a blanket, a handheld sickle, fishing hooks, and a ration of sorghum, a local nutrient-rich staple food. In addition, each freed slave is provided with a dairy goat. Goat milk can be turned into a variety of products that help fight off hunger. They require very little food and supplies to survive. A goat is also used as an entrepreneurial tool that allows freed slaves to sell and trade various products. Contact us for more information on how you can help.
Slavery is not history. Most people think slavery and human trafficking ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. Think again... From sex slaves in Asia, debt-bondage in India, forced labor camps in China, to chattel slaves in Africa, more people are enslaved today than ever before. In fact, the American Anti-Slavery Group estimates that there are over 27 million people enslaved worldwide. To be clear, slavery is not referring to people with bad bosses or earning low wages. Slavery is defined under international law as "forced labor, with no pay, under the threat of violence." The Rainbow of Hope Freedom Foundation and our NGO partners enable you to join the fight to end this horrific crime against humanity. There are three basic ways anyone and everyone can get involved: #1 - educate yourself about the modern-day slavery; #2 - tell others about it; and #3 take action.
