She will discuss the establishment of a distribution center in her home city of Zaporizhya, and the incredible work of her team of volunteers there.

Genya has worked closely with Chalice of Mercy since 2011, particularly helping organize pilgrimages of more than 1500 Ukrainian OB-GYN doctors to Medjugorje. When the War broke out, Genya had to flee with her family from Kiev to Poland, making a very difficult and dangerous escape from the Russian bombardments.
