May 5th 2024 Update

Happy Ukrainian Easter!

Today, May 5th, Ukrainians are celebrating Easter  – someone cracking eggs in the trenches at the front line, some under the occupation of the Russian military, some lightning candles in churches thousands of kilometers away from their homeland. Today many Ukrainians cannot have a festive meal or state of mind to celebrate, but the most important is that they still have faith and hope. This is something that the enemy is not able to steal or destroy. For many Ukrainians, faith and hope is all they have now. As a citizen of Ukraine, as a daughter whose mother has been living under russian occupation for more than two years, and on behalf of the Ukrainian nation, I want to thank you all for your sincere care and support throughout these difficult times.

After all, it is your support that gives Ukrainians hope, nourishes faith and does not let it fade away. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  


Thank you for supporting our cause and bringing hope to people in Ukraine.

Humanitarian Aid & Shipping

We continue to collect necessary aid to satisfy the needs of people who fled Nova Kahovka and surrounding cities and towns within occupied parts of the Kherson region.

With your contributions, we have sent the first 4 of 8 boxes of humanitarian aid to Ukraine. Over 150 lbs of goods are now on the way to Ukraine – power banks, solar panels, medications, and other essential supplies that were provided by your generosity. This first shipment is expected to reach its destination in the next 4-5 weeks and fulfill the needs of the cities and towns close to the front line.

We want to highlight the constant need for different kinds of over-the-counter medicines and medical supplies (braces, dressings, bandages, first aid items), survival equipment (emergency blankets, backpacks, tents, waterproof bags). Also is a high need for diapers and clothes for children and adults in hospitals.

We accept all donations,  not necessarily new items in the box or with tags. If you have something in your garage or storage that you think might be useful, please contact Nadiia via email at [email protected]

Sharing this email with your friends or coworkers is also very valuable help.

We are also looking for an individual that may have a truck or van and willing to donate their time to drop off a larger supply of packaged boxes from Newburyport to Bosmix in Norwell MA (our shipping company).  

We thank you all for supporting us in our mission for over two years. We achieved a lot during these 26 month and without your continuous support  it won’t be possible.
