Tuesday Community Awareness Post:
The United Ukrainian American Relief Committee, Inc. (ЗУАДК) is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of Ukrainian communities and individuals throughout the world. They were founded in 1944 to help those in need. Since its beginning, UUARC has endeavored to provide aid where the need is the greatest. It provided help to many thousands of refugees who came to the United States after World War II, as well as assisted countless Ukrainians throughout the world. UUARC also provides assistance to those living in poverty and those in the current war zones in Ukraine. Emphasis is placed on orphanages, schools, hospitals, the sick and elderly, and Ukraine’s brave men and women and their families who have risked so much to defend Ukraine during the current Russian invasion. In addition to humanitarian aid, education, sustainable land programs abroad, and our immigrant programs here in the U.S., they are often the first to respond to aid victims of natural disasters such as floods or mine accidents.
UUARC is looking for volunteers to load a container of humanitarian aid headed to Volnovakha, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine on Saturday, April 6 at the UUARC office at 1206 Cottman Avenue, Philadelphia 19111 from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If interested in volunteering or for any questions, please call 215-728-1630 or email UUARC@uuarc.org.
We are a proud supporter of UUARC. For more information, please visit www.uuarc.org.
