We get to appreciate the warmth of our homes when we read about the newly-liberated towns of Ukraine.
Funds from the UNWLA Keep Ukraine Warm campaign already powering up our aid to Ukraine.
Our first generator and 40 wood-burning stoves have been delivered to the newly-liberated towns in the Kharkiv region. Only recently have they been able to receive help.
Did you notice the patriotic blue-and-yellow coloring of the generator? In addition to those recently delivered to the Kharkiv region, donations have already helped us buy another 10 generators, along with 110 wood stoves. The hospitals suffer from power outages just like the rest of Ukraine. Sometimes even such a mundane thing as a generator can help save lives.
Dry and Warm Boots on the Ground
Ukrainian defenders from the special ops team “Shum” (“Noise” in Ukrainian) thanked us with this little video rocking the new boots we sent them! Small grants like these help Ukrainian defenders stay focused on their hard job. Join us in our prayers for them!
There’s still time to donate to the campaign and ask your employer to match your contribution. Donate to Keep Ukraine Warm!
Stamford, Connecticut – Members of UNWLA Branch 139 gathered together with the School of Ukrainian Studies at St. Basil Seminary for coffee, delicious pastries and… dictation!
“What a wonderful feeling to be united! Our strength is in our unity,” wrote the Branch on their Facebook page, and we can’t agree more!
New York City – Earlier that week, soyuzianky participated in the 19th Gala Luncheon to Benefit the Ukrainian Catholic University at the Yale Club in New York City. The connection between UNWLA and UCU is not just social: in September 2012, the UNWLA decided to create a fund to support women’s studies at the Ukrainian Catholic University. The initiative grew into the UNWLA Center for Women’s Studies. The importance of education and support of young professional women cannot be underestimated, as noted by Marianna Zajac, Honorary President of the UNWLA.
