In collaboration with Saint Cyril and Methodius Byzantine Catholic Church in Cary, and Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant churches throughout our community, please join us in prayer for the beleaguered people of Ukraine.

In the spirit of solidarity, unified in Christ, we call for an immediate ceasefire, peaceful diplomatic solutions to the war, and nuclear disarmament. We also will hear testimonies of the people directly impacted by the war and share opportunities to support refugees and those trapped in the war zone.

Please join us in our call for solidarity, prayer, and peace for the people of Ukraine.

For more information, please contact Ken Chiha at kchiha@gmail.com

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
