YMCA Ukraine Emergency Response Fundraiser

The emergency response fundraisers for YMCA Ukraine hosted by Analu and Carla at the end of February were very successful. Almost  $2000 was raised through their efforts, all of which will go to support YMCA Ukraine. The YMCA plans on using the funds in two different ways. The first will be to partner with other organizations to support the families of the victims of the violence that led to the change in government. The second will be to deliver new YMCA programming.

While YMCA volunteers across Ukraine continue to deliver their regular child and youth programming, they have recognized a need to deliver new programming to address some of the underlying issues in the country. These programs will be focused on helping to build awareness around democracy, tolerance and the building of a peaceful society.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our partners.
