What is Uniting for Ukrainian Kids Program?

The Uniting for Ukrainian Kids Program is a dedicated initiative aimed at supporting children affected by war in Ukraine. Through this program, children are offered a respite period of 3-4 weeks, during which they are hosted by families from the Ukrainian diaspora abroad. The program prioritizes the children's physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, offering a myriad of activities that include cultural events, sports, and arts.

This program is made possible through the generous support of host families and sponsor contributions. It enables these children, who have witnessed the devastating effects of conflict, to experience a period of healing and recovery. It further connects them with essential resources and support, helping to rebuild their lives and shape a better future.

Seeking Host Families
Make a Personal and Impactful Difference!

Would you like to transform a child's life and make a meaningful impact? We're actively searching for families interested and capable of becoming hosts for the Uniting for Ukrainian Kids Program.

Ideal host families are part of the Ukrainian diaspora or have at least one family member who speaks Ukrainian or Russian. This cultural connection can help ease the transition for the children and create a more enriching experience for all involved.

By opening your home and heart, you can provide these children with a safe haven where they can heal, grow, and experience the joys of childhood. Make a difference today, and help us build bridges of hope for the future.
