Post of gratitude and fundraising!

Our Oksana Datskevych has been a God-sent.

She has been volunteering in Poland for the last three weeks! Because of her presence there, we were able to help purchase numerous medical supplies and medicines, so very needed in Ukraine! Oksana has become an expert in Polish pharmaceutics and knows the routes from one pharmacy to the next way too well!

We were able to QUICKLY supply medicines to various medical institutions, especially in the south of Ukraine, and send medicines from Poland to the front line.

We will attempt to continue helping in this way, so if you would like to support this effort, please feel free to PayPal to hanna.leleko@gmail.com as to “family and friends” with a note: meds to Ukraine.

Thank you!

FAQs

You've got questions and we have the answers

Who are Ukrainians in the Carolinas?

We are a network of volunteers throughout the Carolinas dedicated to assisting the people of Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian culture in the Carolinas. Our network has been operational in the Triangle for the last 8 years, ever since Russia invaded Ukraine. We have been collecting and shipping medical supplies to Ukraine, helping refugees, wounded warriors, families of perished Ukrainian heroes and orphans. We have hosted numerous cultural events and advocated for assistance to Ukraine. Since February 24, 2022, when Russia started its new phase of war in Ukraine, we have become an even stronger and larger group and welcome your support. We have media coverage, politicians’ attention, but most importantly - everybody’s willingness to help Ukraine’s brave military and citizens. We already shipped several containers of medical supplies, so generously donated to us by local supporters of Ukraine and of freedom. We also provided localized support to various cities throughout Ukraine where there was a great need for food and medical supplies.

What is your status? Are you an officially recognized charitable organization?

We have incorporated in North Carolina and are in the process of applying for a 501(c)(3) charitable status. We hope to receive it by the end of this year, and upon receipt, all donations will be granted a tax-deductible status retroactively.

Where can I send my monetary donation?

You can write a check to Ukrainians in the Carolinas or PayPal or Zelle your donation to donations.ukrainians.carolinas@gmail.com

Can I donate clothing or other goods?

At the moment, the border is overwhelmed with various humanitarian supplies from European nations, so we are focusing our efforts on securing and shipping medical supplies only.

What else can I do to help in supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion?

Spread the word! Contact your elected representatives and ask them to provide air defense systems to Ukraine, expedite legislation to allow Ukrainian refugees into US, and secure humanitarian corridors into sieged Ukrainian cities.

I have a press inquiry or want to schedule an interview
