UCU Helps Ukraine

Since the beginning of 2015, staff and members of Ukrainian Credit Union Limited have been raising money for the "UCU Helps Ukraine" fund in order to assist those injured in the fighting in eastern Ukraine.

As the fighting continues many individuals will be in dire need of help. Many will sustain injuries, rendering them incapable of returning to their previous jobs, or lose their lives, leaving their families with one less provider. In a country such as Ukraine, which is in the midst of economic reform and struggling financially, those directly affected by the conflict may find themselves with little to no help from the authorities in terms of social assistance. With the generous support of people like you, we will be able to help those individuals and their families not only meet essential daily needs, but work toward a brighter future. 

On behalf of staff and members of Ukrainian Credit Union Limited, we would like to thank you for your support of our organization’s initiative “UCU Helps Ukraine.” Your donation will go a long way in helping assist the men and women who have made enormous sacrifices in Ukraine’s struggle against Russian aggression.       

The UCU Helps Ukraine fund has collected approximately $76,000 CDN. So far we have distributed a total of $71,055 CDN to 44 soldiers who have each received $1,200 USD.

We will continue making distributions of $1,200 USD per soldier while funds last. Your generosity has made this possible, but sadly there are still so many injured soldiers that require help. Thank you once again for your donation and support. Together, we will make a positive difference for those committed to Ukraine’s democratic and European future! 

There are still many young soldiers who have lost arms, legs or suffered even worse injuries. If you have the ability and desire to help the wounded Ukrainian soldiers, you can make a donation to the account #721225 at any branch of Ukrainian Credit Union Limited or through our Call–Center at (416)–922–4407 or (800)–461–0777.

We transfer the collected funds directly to the soldiers. If you follow our Facebook page you will see that we regularly publish photos of the young men we have helped along with the thank you letters they have sent us.

Sincerely yours,
The UCU Helps Ukraine Committee
