Stand with us to support Ukraine victory!

May 8th, 2022, marks Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender to the Allied Forces in 1945 and the end of World War Il in Europe.

May 9th, 2022, "Victory Day in Russia" is bound to be another day in Putin's murderous campaign and propaganda against the peaceful and democratic independent country of Ukraine — unless you, along with all people of good will, take action.

Join North Carolinians of all backgrounds to show your solidarity with Ukraine and to support the heroic Ukrainian fighters for freedom and democracy! We will gather in front of the State Capital to express our support for Ukraine and say No to Putin, No to Ruscizm.

We are extending a special invitation to Ukrainians who just arrived in North Carolina.  We look forward to meeting you on Sunday, May 8th.  We will have music and activities for children.  It will be a good opportunity for you to meet other Ukrainians and community members.  We also hope to have immigration lawyers on hand to answer any questions you might have.  Please let us know if you need help with transportation.

Дорогі новоприбулі українці, вітаємо та запрошуємо вас на наш мітинг. Ми дуже сподіваємось зустрітись та познайомитись з вами у неділю 8-го травня. Це буде також гарна нагода для вас обмінятися один з одним вашим першим американським досвідом та, сподіваємось, отримати інформацію від когось із юриcтів, яких ми також запрошуємо. Якщо у вас немає готового плаката, не журіться - ви зможете його зробити прямо на мітингу. Ми також принесемо крейду та фарби для обличчя, щоб діти не нудьгували. Наш Влад Кері буде здійснювати музичну підтримку. Повідомьте, якщо вам потрібна допомога з транспортуванням.

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
