So many brave young men and women are volunteering to defend their country from Russian invaders. They are joining territorial defence units and regional tactical medical battalions and are fighting with little to no training or resources. This initiative will help the volunteers from territorial defence units across Ukraine with much needed medical supplies, protective equipment, fuel, and communications devices, etc., to help them stay alive in their fight for freedom and democracy.
Established in 1967, the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is the global voice for the Ukrainian people worldwide. As an international non-governmental organization, we represent the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians in the diaspora, unite Ukrainian communities and organizations in 60+ countries, and work to support a democratic, prosperous, European Ukraine.
The Ukrainian World Congress is recognized by the United Nations Economic and Social Council as a non-governmental organization with special consultative status and has a participatory status as an international non-governmental organization with the Council of Europe. As such, donors will not receive a tax receipt for their donations as Ukrainian World Congress is not a registered charity.
The Ukrainian World Congress has worked with the Government of Ukraine, international governments and organizations, global civil society, and the Ukrainian diaspora for more than 50 years.
We are part of the global Ukrainian family. We know where financial aid can make the most difference in supporting the defenders of Ukraine today.
UWC is a registered not-for-profit, not a registered charity, therefore, we are not able to provide tax receipts for donations.
Your donation will be used for non-lethal aid such as:
Medical supplies and IFAKs (individual first aid kits).
Helmets, body armor and other non-lethal protective equipment to Ukrainian defenders and volunteers who are heroically resisting the Russian invasion.
Vital communications systems.
Global coordination and logistics for diaspora aid effort.
UWC receives your donation and works with vetted partners to ensure that defenders of Ukraine receive desperately needed aid on the ground as quickly as possible.
UWC is an organization that has volunteerism at its core. Our passion for our work drives our desire to keep our administrative costs as low as possible to do our work effectively.
As the campaign progresses, we look forward to sharing updates with our donor community.
We will release audited statements on the amount of money raised and where it was spent following our annual audit.
