    Dear Donors,

    You can make a difference by donating to UUARC's mission of providing humanitarian aid to the victims of war in Ukraine 2022.

    United Ukrainian American Relief Committee, Inc (UUARC) was established in 1944 and started fulfilling its mission of “Brother-to-Brother” by assisting Ukrainians in refugee camps during and after WWII, and then helping to resettle more than 70,000 of these refugees in the United States.

    Since its beginning, UUARC has endeavored to provide aid where the need is the greatest, as well as assisted countless Ukrainians throughout the world.

     Currently UUARC is raising funds to provide humanitarian aid to the victims of war in Ukraine after further invasion of Russia onto Ukrainian soil and conflict escalation.

     With millions of potential victims in Ukraine, UUARC is fundraising to provide vital medical supplies to victims, care for the injured and refugees, as well as shelter and food to those affected.

    UUARC is working closely with UCCA, UWC, US Aid, and the Ukrainian Embassy in the coordination of aid.

    Donations can be made directly to United Ukrainian American Relief Committee, Inc. 1206 Cottman Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19111

    Escalating violence and conditions in Ukraine make safe return to the country categorically impossible. #TPS and #DED are tools @POTUS  has right now to safeguard Ukrainians already in the U.S. We join 177 orgs to call for #TPS4Ukrainehttps://bit.ly/UkraineTPSLetter

    #TPS and #DED are vital humanitarian tools that send a message to the world that Ukrainians must be protected. @SecMayorkas and @POTUS and should designate #TPS or #DED for Ukraine NOW! #TPS4Ukraine

    In addition to #TPS or #DED for Ukraine, @SecBlinken should immediately put in place Special Student Relief, which allows Ukrainian int'l students in the U.S. to remain here and protected while conflict escalates. #TPS4Ukraine https://bit.ly/UkraineTPSLetter

    The Ukrainian American Bar Association strongly condemns recognition by the Russian Federation of the “independence” of the so-called “Donetsk People’s Republic” and “Luhansk People’s Republic”. Donetsk and Luhansk regions are part of Ukraine. This act of further aggression against Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity violates all norms of international law and established world order. We call upon the rest of the civilized world to continue to provide military, economic, and technical support to Ukraine, and to impose sanctions on the Russian Federation, including its personnel, assets and activities on Ukrainian territory, including the Crimea and the proxy formations in Eastern Ukraine.
