Public Advocacy Call: Senate and House Resolutions Seek to Recognize the Russian War in Ukraine As a Genocide
Last week, the Kharkiv division of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine received another batch of humanitarian aid. Generators, portable solid fuel heating devices, sleeping bags, blankets, etc. – all of these items were delivered by our partner AICM Ukraine using funding from the UNWLA and will be put to use immediately.
In wartime, Specialists of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine:
dispose of shells, mines and bombs;
educate the community on how to stay safe;
deliver water and supplies to civilians of the Kharkiv region, heavily damaged by russian artillery strikes;
battle fires and other emergency situations.
AICM Ukraine has recently reached remote corners of the Luhansk region, previously isolated by russian artillery strikes. We’ll keep you posted on the updates of our impact!
Our Branches 137 and 143 collaboratively organized a Paint and Sip fundraiser called “Inner Conversation.” Led by artist Anna Zaiachkivska, the event encouraged participants to use color to connect – with others and with themselves.
