we provide humanitarian assistance to Ukrainian refugees

Operation Mordechai has been launched as a time critical mission to address the humanitarian needs of the refugees who fled Ukraine to safer grounds. We provide medical supplies, food, clothing, hygiene products, home essentials, children and baby items, school supplies, and shelter assistance to refugees and their supporters. Operation Mordechai is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. 100% of donations are used for the direct benefit of Ukrainian refugees.
