This week Ukraine marks its 32nd modern Independence Day while honoring its millennia-long cultural heritage.

August 27, 2023

Over the last 18 months, Triangle has become home to hundreds of Ukrainian families that fled the Russian invasion and came to the US on the Uniting for Ukraine program.

We are grateful to the North Carolina Courage players, team leadership and Mr. & Mrs. Malik for recognizing today’s match and showing solidarity with Ukraine.  Unfortunately, with hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians killed, many more wounded and millions displaced by Russian aggression, Europe’s largest and bravest democracy is now fighting to protect its home and defend and preserve freedom for Ukraine and for the rest of the world.

Ukrainians in the Carolinas, a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) NC nonprofit organization, and their network of Ukrainian-American volunteers and friends of Ukraine has been working to assist the people of Ukraine since 2014, when Russia first invaded Ukraine. So, come by and say Pyrvit (pri-veet), which means "hello" or "welcome".

Thank you to all of the fans who came out for a great game of soccer and to celebrate Ukraine’s courage and resilience!

Thank you, North Carolina, for supporting Ukraine! Slava Ukraini!


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.

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.
