As you know, winter has come to Ukraine. Russia continues its merciless bombing of Ukraine’s power system. On December 7, Kyiv’s Mayor Vitali Klitschko warned of a “apocalypse” for the Ukrainian this winter. He added that Kyiv, along with most of our country might lose power, water, and heat. One way or another, everyone in Ukraine is now at risk. They need our help more than ever!
To meet the growing needs of the Ukrainian people we urgently need to raise $800,000 in the next 30 days. To help reach this goal, a generous donor has offered a $400,000 matching gift challenge and will match your donation, dollar for dollar. Money raised from this Lifesaving Matching Gift Challenge will be used for two fundamental purposes:
- to help Ukrainians survive the brutal winter that is upon them
- to help support a growing number of orphans.
Support received through this matching gift challenge will allow us to provide evacuation vehicles, generators, wood stoves, power stations, sleeping bags, winter parkas, pants, winter suits, hats, gloves and thermal underwear to those in need.
Additionally, Assist Ukraine will support the growing number of orphans by:
- providing clothes, bedding, and generators for the orphanage this winter and continued support for the future and
- providing opportunities for children aging-out of the orphanages to continue their education.
- expanding to a new orphanage. Assist Ukraine has been invited to partner with a French group in building a new facility to care for up to 500 children. Please invest in the future of these deserving children today.
