Please join Galyna Karpenski and friends of Ukraine to raise awareness of the detrimental damage Russian invasion has on Ukrainian eco-system.

This event is coordinated with the Ukrainian animal welfare organization @UAnimals.

Event will be held on Jan 28th (2-5pm) next to the Raleigh Capitol Building (south side).

During the 10+ months of the war, the State Environmental Inspection of Ukraine has been collecting data to record the evidence of the environmental destruction. Below are just a few of many facts:

  • 182,880 m2 of soil is polluted with harmful substances;
  • 2,365,129 m2 of land is littered with remains of destroyed objects and ammunition;
  • 680,618 tons of petroleum products were burned during the shelling, which resulted in significant air pollution;
  • 23,286 hectares of forest were burned by rockets or projectiles, and it will take at least 10 years to restore some of the forest areas.

Countless wild and domestic animals including have been killed, died from starvation or injured with no medical help.

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 are a NC charitable non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. EIN: 88-2029754

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
