Dear Very Reverend and Reverend Fathers, Reverend Monastics and Beloved Faithful of the Philadelphia Metropolia!
On Thursday morning, February 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russia’s military to invade Ukraine. The attack began with a launch of ballistic and conventional missiles, followed by ground and coastal operations. Soldiers of the Ukrainian army showed wisdom and excellent preparation for meeting the enemy. Unfortunately, we hear about a lot of damage to buildings, wounded and killed people. We know and believe that the war will end soon, but it will take a lot of effort and resources to restore everything.
Our Metropolia invites you to make donations to the Humanitarian Aid Fund for Ukraine. This can be done as follows:
Write a check to the “Ukrainian Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia” and send it to the office at 810 North Franklin Street, Philadelphia PA 19123. Please write on the check “Humanitarian Aid Fund for Ukraine”;
When the pastor announces the collection in the parish, leave your donation in the parish basket, which will then be transferred to the Philadelphia office along with other donations;
You can donate on the Philadelphia Archdiocese’s website www.ukrarcheparchy.us, and click on Donate through PAYPAL and select “WAR VICTIMS AND HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN UKRAINE“; Encourage local financial and other institutions to make contributions.
There are no small or large donations. But your donation can change someone’s life for the better. The Lord God will repay the happy donor a hundredfold. Pray for the people of the war victims! May the Lord bless you and our brothers and sisters in Ukraine!
Most Rev. Borys Gudziak

Metropolitan of Ukrainian Catholics in the United States

As the people of Ukraine undertake a heroic stand in their fight for freedom, it’s up to us to have their backs.
We at American Jewish Committee (AJC) just launched an emergency fund to assist Ukrainian refugees and to provide humanitarian assistance to Ukraine as a result of Russia’s unprovoked invasion.
Show your support: Click here to make a donation to AJC’s emergency #StandWithUkraine fund. One hundred percent of donations received will be distributed toward efforts to support Ukraine at this critical time.
Our first grant will go to IsraAid, the wonderful Israeli humanitarian organization, which is on the border of Moldova assisting Ukrainian Jewish and non-Jewish refugees alike.
We are also currently in touch with a number of key Ukrainian individuals, organizations, and partners to determine their most urgent needs and how we might best assist.
The stakes could not be higher. As a frequent visitor to this country with more than 300,000 Jews, and having just traveled there on a solidarity mission less than two months ago, I’ve seen the critical importance of a free and democratic Ukraine.
Already, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes.
AJC’s emergency #StandWithUkraine fund is consistent with our long standing tradition of providing assistance when possible in such dire situations.
In the coming days and weeks, we’ll keep all donors notified on allocation decisions.
For months, AJC has been mobilizing our global diplomatic connections and sounding the alarm about the threat of a Russian invasion to help ensure a powerful, unified, American-led response. Now, we’re redoubling these critical efforts, calling on Congress to stand with Ukraine and sanction Russia, and working to assist Ukrainian refugees and to provide humanitarian assistance.
Thank you for joining AJC in support of the Ukrainian people.

ACEP stands with all countries, organizations and individuals throughout the world who have condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This unprovoked act of war must stop. It has already resulted in the loss of civilian lives and homes and uprooted hundreds of thousands of innocent Ukrainians.
We join with others in sending our love and compassion to the people of Ukraine and hope for a peaceful, just resolution to this conflict.
There are many ways we can help. In addition to sending our love, the tools of energy psychology are particularly helpful in war-torn situations. If you know anyone who is in, or has connection in Ukraine, please share these resources with them.
And... these are great tools to use yourself if you're feeling anxious or stressed.
Please share these free resources widely on social media.
1. We've created a web page in Ukrainian that contains some key Resources for Resilience. It includes 5, free self help videos that anyone can use to relieve stress, anxiety and trauma, while building resilience. Access it here.
