Since the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Ukrainian people have inspired the world with their resilience, courage, and faith. Against the tremendous force of the Russians and the resulting devastation and violence in their country, our students at Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) have placed themselves squarely between disaster and their country’s future.
Many of our students and their families have lost their homes, jobs, and income. Some of our students have lost family members in the war. Yet they persevere, continuing their education while supporting orphans, refugees and the most vulnerable who have come to the UCU campus to seek refuge.
