We are grateful to our wonderful volunteers and very generous Wilmington Ukraine supporters

May 25, 2023

There is a vibrant new Ukrainian community in Wilmington, NC!

Organized by Anastasiia Chapman and CWS/Wilmington, their first Ukrainian Festival brought Ukraine supporters together to assist Ukrainian refugees and to advocate for Ukraine.

We were honored to take part in this groundbreaking event and gladly invited our partners from Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, Fayetteville and other NC and SC locations to participate. Our wonderful Red Kalyna rocked the stage, and there were other young new performers of Ukrainian dance and song who made us all proud! Who knew Wilmington, NC was such a Ukrainian town!

We met many Ukrainian newcomers, second and third generation Ukrainian-Americans who were proud of their heritage and honored to assist Ukraine! We met American doctors and volunteers who just returned from medical missions to Ukraine, ready to go back and assist again.

We raised $1,000 for medical supplies for Ukraine and are grateful to our wonderful volunteers and very generous Wilmington Ukraine supporters for making it possible!


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.
