Only a few thousand Jews have remained in the port city of Mariupol. A mere 12 Kilometers East of the city fighting rages between pro-Russian separatists and volunteer battalions struggling to keep the town of Shirokino. The Chabad Lubavitch organization tries to keep track of its members still within the city while providing help to these various Jewish families in need.
