Another thirty days of never-ending prayer, hard work, and struggle. Another thirty days of boundless pride for Ukrainians and the UCU community. Another thirty of infinite gratitude to our friends and philanthropists worldwide – to all those helping us hold the line with their sincerity and implicit faith in our victory!
From February 24 to April 24, Ukrainian Catholic University contributed $2.37 million to Ukraine’s victory in the war with the Russian occupiers.
