Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians refugees have traveled to Lviv seeking shelter. All in the city have opened their homes and hearts to those fleeing, including Ukrainian Catholic University. The university has converted every usable space to help those seeking shelter, and our students, faculty, and staff continue to volunteer their time to help refugees and Ukraine.
Just yesterday, a group of 30 orphans from Dnipro stayed at the university as they prepared to travel to Poland and then on to Sweden to safety. These precious children were greeted with chocolate, compassion, and a safe place to spend the night. Watch below:
Through the generous support of our UCU Foundation donors, $250,000 in urgently needed medicine has already been purchased in Ukraine and will go to medical clinics to help the wounded. UCU has partnered with Kryla Nadiyi / Wings of Hope, a longstanding charitable organization based in Ukraine that has been working with seriously ill children for over a decade, to quickly facilitate this essential and lifesaving medical procurement. Through your continued support, UCU is able to act quickly and provide help to those who need it the most. Thank you!
