I and my wife are originally from Ukraine. We're safe in US. But our parents, relatives, and friends are either still in Ukraine or took refuge in Europe. At least 7 families, people we know, need our help.
This campaign is to help very specific people we know that need our help. I'm now in Moldova/Romania to help on the ground and my wife is coordinating the efforts from home.
Here's what we are doing:
We're obviously contributing thousands of dollars ourselves. But what we found is that there's always more to be done. For example, one problem is that most of these people have money. But that money is hard cash on hand, in Ukrainian currency. They either can't exchange it at all or the exchange rate is 2x or more compared to the official 1:30 USD to UAH rate. So that cash is unfortunately just a useless paper for now.
Last, but not least. Every new day we find out about someone else we know who needs our help. If we have additional funds, we can always use them to help more people.
We really appreciate your support!
