Since February 24, the UNWLA focused its efforts on providing humanitarian relief to Ukraine and public advocacy on its behalf. Every effort matters in this goal, and with your continued support, we hope to achieve more. It has never been more important than now to support work in Ukraine.
●We’ve raised over $400K in the past two weeks, and with continued support hope to
significantly increase that number.

providing aid in the cities of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Poltava, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Odesa, and
