Ivanka Trump helped to donated one million meals to refugees on the Poland-Ukraine border, which amounted to 158,400 pounds of food to Europe.

Former President Donald Trump‘s eldest daughter partnered up with the UPS Foundation and several nonprofit organizations, including City Serve, City of Destiny, the Pentecostal European Fellowship, and numerous local religious organizations to send out the food supplies.

“The Ukrainian people have shown inspiring courage and resilience during the invasion of their country by Russia,” she told Fox News. “As is often the case, pain and hardship are disproportionately borne by the most vulnerable.”

“With this food, I hope to provide a small source of comfort and nourishment for Ukrainians who are suffering so greatly,” Trump added.

Local organizations will deliver the meals to refugees inside Poland and those still in Ukraine. The choices of meals came from the advised food preferences of aid workers in Ukraine.

Senior Pastor of City of Destiny church, Paula White-Cain, has told Fox News that she has been trying to connect food scarcity in the United States to that in war-torn Ukraine.

“I got a call from Ivanka Trump. She and I worked closely in the White House to put together a national hunger relief program called Farmers to Families. When I told Ivanka what we were doing, she went into action as only Ivanka can,” White-Cain said.

Other celebrities, such as Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, have also contributed into aiding the Ukrainian refugees. The celebrity couple has launched a “Stand with Ukraine” fundraiser in early March and has since raised over $35 million in cooperation with Flexport and Airbnb.

“We’re raising funds to support a relief effort that will have immediate impact and supply much-needed refugee and humanitarian aid to the area,” Kutcher said.

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for this support,” said Kunis, originally from Ukraine. “While this is far from a solve of the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty.”
