In 2006, Ukrainian Foundation was established by the immigrants from Ukraine to help the Ukrainian refugees adjust to their new home in the United States. Our base is in Portland, OR, a home to over 100,000 immigrants from Ukraine.
Since 2014 when Russia invaded the Eastern part of Ukraine, we have been sending medical supplies to those fighting to protect their cities from that invasion.
With Russia’s attack on the whole of Ukraine as of February 24, 2022, we are part of the effort to help fill the unmet needs of displaced Ukrainians both in and out of Ukraine.
