Standing with Ukraine

|

Dear Friends,

Never in a million years did I think that the help we provide, the impact we make would touch my family so closely. And yet, here I am, with my aunt hiding out in a bomb shelter in Kyiv, my cousin helping our community over there.

I am in touch with people in Ukraine and here are a few ways I think you can be of help:

  1. If you have a medical background and are able to help with telehealth services in Ukraine please reach out to me at anyashina@riverdaley.org
  2. Talk to your Russian speaking neighbors – please support everyone, not only those of Ukrainian background.
  3. Donate to any of the organizations below
  4. Help your children understand what’s going on (see below)

Please remember that we are all in this together – while the tyrant acts, all people suffer.

Thank you all.

With Kind Regards,
Alexandra Nyashina
