WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Our first beneficiary: a family of Kseniia Mahjoub.

Kseniia was on the last weeks of pregnancy when russia invaded Ukraine and the war started. Chernihiv, the city where she purchased her own house only 2 years ago, got bombarded.

Kseniia, her husband and their 8y.o. daughter took shelter in the nearby building in the 9 sq meter basement along with 3 other families for days. When they got a word that the hospital has been bombed, she knew they had to leave. They were given 10 mins to pack their belongings as they fled under gunshots and bombs across the last bridge out of the city. It took them 8 days to reach Germany first and eventually they ended up in Sweden.

There she gave birth to their twin boys - Adam and Liam. And learned that their house is completely destroyed.

Our 2nd beneficiary: Solomia Fedynyshyn & her future son.

Solomia is 19. Her 22 year old husband was killed by russian bombs on March 13. Solomia is 9 months pregnant. Their son will never see his father.

Sofia is from my native town, therefore helping her hits home on so many levels.

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
