Two Colorado Springs residents are partnering to bring heat, and heart, to the war-torn country of Ukraine. Yana Malyk and Whitney Luckett appeared on Loving Living Local to share information on their non-profit organization, Ukraine Power.

Yana is a Ukraine refugee and she and her sponsor family, The Lucketts, created the nonprofit to get generators/heaters to Ukrainians to stay warm this winter. Some reports indicate that over 80% of the power grid is down in the Luhansk Region. The generators provide heat and the ability to cook, making it possible to survive the harsh Ukrainian winter.
