Orphans in Ukraine

To enhance human rights in Ukraine, U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s focus on orphans is intended to communicate the need to support and improve the lives of people in this important sector of society.   

Through an open exchange of information from corporate, government, educational and non-profit entities, as well as from private citizens, the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation wishes to inform as well as advocate for positive change affecting orphans and orphanages.

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation encourages your participation and support – both financial and moral!  You may submit information, make a donation, or join our advisory council. Contact us at info@usukraine.org re: orphans.
