Dear Donors and Volunteers-
Ukraine Relief Initiative (URI) has been operating for just under 6 months. With your generous donations and volunteer efforts, we have affected thousands of displaced Ukrainians that have relocated to Kraków. Together with our on-the-ground partner, Kraków Dębniki for Ukraine (KDU), the life-giving services are delivered with heart and a deep commitment to ease the crises for Ukrainian women and children. Please know that you are the engine for this effort.
I want to personally thank you for trusting Dana and me with your hard earned dollars in the support of the Ukrainian efforts. I am humbled by your love and generosity. And I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by the light and inspiration you share with me and for all humanity.
Check out this 5-minute video of the Ukrainian women that gather at the Świetlica Dębniki Community Center to see and hear your impact first-hand. https://youtu.be/bJPsr9lffiQ
Please see the 6-month impact summary for those who want to see the journey and the number of people served by each program.
We are now aiming to raise an additional $200K to fund the two Community Centers so they can continue offering services for another 6 months. If you are so moved, please assist with an additional donation. Contribution methods are at the end of this email.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and generosity, which is only matched by our heroic partners at KDU and the Ukrainian women and children living the struggle daily. Thank you for being part of my beloved circle. There are no words to express my love and gratitude. URI + KDU: “1 + 1 = 1,000”
With Love and Hope for Peace,
