CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has sent a donation of €100,000 ($108,720) in first aid medicine to Ukraine, to assist victims of war.

Vatican News, the agency of the Vatican’s Dicastery for Communications, reported that the donation was “the result of an important donation received by the Apostolic Eleemosynary through the Embassy of Taiwan to the Holy See.”

Taiwan’s donation comes amid mounting concerns that the democratic nation will soon face an invasion by Communist China. The Holy See is one of only 12 states that maintain full diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
