UCCA's efforts at confronting humanitarian and military challenges in Ukraine with direct support
raised by 4,857 people
Since February 24, 2022, when Russia began its genocidal war against Ukraine, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America, the largest umbrella organization representing nearly 2 million Ukrainian Americans, has been confronting humanitarian and military challenges with direct support. A year later, we’re proud of what we have achieved - https://ucca.org/humanitarian-effort-one-year-report-1-1/
Russia’s unprovoked invasion of and barbaric war against Ukraine has created the largest humanitarian crisis Europe has seen since WWII. Over 6.5 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee the ravages of war, while at least 8 million remain internally displaced within Ukraine’s borders.
To meet the humanitarian challenges, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the largest umbrella organization representing the interests of the nearly 2 million Americans of Ukrainian descent, has launched a nationwide fundraising campaign to provide relief for the growing number of those in need and continues to coordinate vital humanitarian assistance with various organizations on the ground.
Even before Russia’s unprovoked war UCCA’s CAU/RODU worked with one of our partners “AICM-Ukraine” Foundation (Association Internationale de Cooperation Medicine) to help stock several warehouses in Ukraine with medical and pharmaceutical supplies. The initial stockpiles have been depleted, but the warehouses continue to be resupplied so that humanitarian aid can be delivered to those in urgent need.
UCCA has also been working with partners to supply vital life-saving military first aid kits – IFAKs to our defenders of democracy. These kits are assembled in Europe and then are transported into Ukraine and distributed directly to the frontlines. To date, over 20,000 IFAKs have been delivered.
UCCA’s humanitarian efforts are also providing free meals to the IDPs, wounded warriors as well as to several territorial defense units. Working with our partner in Poland, UCCA is supporting a program that provides food and shelter for those fleeing the ravages of war.
Since before Ukraine's renewed independence in 1991, UCCA has been on the ground in Ukraine, working with pro-democracy, humanitarian NGOs. Thus, be assured that all of UCCA’s programs are working with long-standing partners who have been vetted. Please know that every penny donated to UCCA’s Fundraiser will go directly to our humanitarian aid effort – NO money is being diverted at the top or dedicated for administrative overhead.
Ukrainians are fighting today in defense of our shared American and Ukrainian democratic ideals. We need your continued support! If we fail to help them in this fight, this will be a failure for all of us.
All donations to UCCA’s Council on Aid to Ukrainians are tax-deductible.
