Support for families in Ukraine affected by war
We are organizing donations to be used to help our family and friends in our hometown of Chervonohrad, 30 miles east of the Polish border.
All contributions go directly to the Chervonohrad community. We are in frequent and direct communication with members of the community, which allows us to provide and support their immediate needs. We are providing food, transportation, housing and medical supplies and more amidst very challenging logistics obstacles.
By providing on the ground support and connecting directly to those in need, we have already seen the large impact our family and friends have made on a smaller scale. As our efforts continue to grow and expand, we want to thank you for your support, and for standing with us and with Ukraine.
