On February 24th, the lives of an entire nation were disrupted when Russian forces invaded Ukraine and begun a war. Homes and landmarks alike destroyed, millions of refugees, civilians murdered and injured, even children—this has been a true catastrophe.
My cousin Angelika (who has made the video above) decided to stay with her boyfriend, who is now serving in Ukrainian Local Defense Forces. Angelika has been volunteering her time doing anything she can to help. She’s been organizing other volunteers, evacuation for women and children who are living under constant threat of terror, delivering food to elders stuck in their apartments, and more. Like Angelika and her boyfriend, many Ukrainians have stepped up to defend their country and people. They are someone’s husbands, wives, children, and cherished friends. Together, they have put their lives on the line to defend against the Russian aggression and fight for their freedom and independence.

Despite the outpour of support from individuals and other countries, particularly in the West, Ukrainian troops are still struggling to secure funds to purchase critical items such as defensive gear (body armor, helmets, knee and elbow pads), thermal imaging equipment, supplies, humanitarian aid, and medicine—including first aid kits.

This is a life and death situation, and they need your help. Funds raised will be used to purchase the above. Please help Angelika raise these urgent funds. Anything raised here will be transferred directly to her so that it can be used on the ground.

Ukrainian soldiers want to be able to go home and hug their family. They want to rebuild. They want their people’s freedom back. They want their country back. And they want this war to end. Because every day this goes on is a day too long.

Thank you,
Katherine Brodsky
