The Ukrainian families now living in Topeka are not used to being dependent on others. They are here because of the terrible tragedy that is still occurring in their beloved country. Our goal is to help them regain their independence. Your donation will go directly to that initiative. Even though they are now safe from the bombs and atrocities which drove them from their country, they are not free from the trauma. Their children struggle to understand why they are here. Most of the families have been torn apart! Many of the women are here alone with their children. Their husbands and fathers are in Ukraine fighting for their country. Your donation helps us provide the much needed support they need to become empowered and independent. Instead of "Giving them a fish," we are helping them to "Learn how to fish" in a new pond in a new country.
