More Info

The Ukrainian people need our assistance, supporting the efforts of the local citizens under attack by Russian troops.

Family and friends,

During my Peace Corps service in Ukraine, I worked to help mitigate the effects of the Russian-Ukrainian war that started in 2014, working with my counterpart Oksana Chervyakova in Zolotonosha. Now, more than ever, we need to come together to support the heroes of Ukraine who are defending their homeland, their communities and their families.

Oksana is tasked with collecting food, clothing and supplies for the community members who are standing up to defend their territory in the Cherkasy region. The youth center that we created together has now become a center for Ukrainians fleeing the Eastern regions. Since the full invasion, Oksana and youth center volunteers have helped over 1,000 refugees and continue to do so daily. With our help, they will be able to continue to help families that have been forced out of their home and communities. 

Please do what you can to help my friends, those I consider my family. With winter already setting in and power plants being purposely destroyed, the cold will be devastating. Help keep this community warm, fed, healthy and protected. All proceeds are sent to Oksana through a wire transfer, where she is able to travel to the nearest big city to purchase resources and goods for the refugees and the community. 

Thank you for your support! 

With gratitude, 

Cara Spence
