One Rosary Leads to Massive Effort to Feed and Help Ukrainian Refugees

Bob Unanue, CEO and President of Goya Foods Inc. was on Fox and Friends to discuss how his company was sending food to two million Ukrainian refugees, including one million children.

“During the interview, I mentioned that as a country we are moving away from God. We are justifying the abuse and exploitation of our children,” Unanue said.

A viewer, Shannon Hasse from San Antonio, contacted Unanue to ask if she could send her a rosary. The president of the Goya company said of course.

“A rosary turned into hundreds, then thousands, and she also called us to ask if we could get those rosaries to the Ukrainian people,” Unanue said.

What started as a mission to feed the hungry for Goya Foods and Global Empowerment Mission is now so much more. It is also about nourishing the soul.

“Every rosary here is different, there are rope rosaries, bead rosaries,” Unanue said. “It’s the gift of faith, prayer and love that will move and impact our world. It’s the only way to survive this.”

Along with all the rosaries, a print of the Virgin of Guadalupe is also on its way to Ukraine.

“It comes from humility and amazing people and it’s so powerful,” Unanue said. “It’s more powerful than the biggest country or the biggest company in the world.”
