A Horrible Day for Ukraine

Updated: 3 days ago

Note: This article describes what happened at just one location. There were many other civilian buildings hit in the capital of Ukraine as well as in other towns and cities. 37 people(including children) were killed and 117 wounded at the time of publishing of this article.


On July 8, the Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital in Kyiv, Ukraine's largest pediatric medical center, was struck during a missile attack. This tragic incident, confirmed by the U.N. Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMUN) on July 9, resulted in the destruction of one hospital building and significant damage to four others.


Sadly, two lives were lost, including a dedicated doctor, and 32 others were injured. Among the wounded were eight children who had to be hospitalized. At the time of the attack, over 1,000 staff members and 670 children were present in the hospital.


Danielle Bell, head of the HRMMUN, stated that evidence strongly indicates the missile directly hit the children's hospital. The findings suggest the weapon struck the hospital rather than being intercepted in the air.


A military expert who examined the site confirmed that the damage was consistent with a direct missile hit. The State Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) found parts of the missile at the scene and has classified this attack as a serious crime, initiating further investigations.


This deliberate targeting of a medical facility highlights the ongoing dangers in the region and underscores the need for increased protection for such vital institutions.

(Editors Note: Praying and Believing People of God, we need a miracle for these precious people of Ukraine. I pray everyone is able to put their politics aside and consider the innocent, the civilians, the children. We need a miracle. We need this war to end. Pray that God moves upon Putin's heart. Pray that God softens his heart and figures out a way to bring peace to where there is only jealousy, strife and division. God does miracles. Pray Church. God will hear us....)
