“As a YMCA member and supporter, you are part of a global YMCA movement that serves over 65 million members in 120 countries.”  

Our YMCA brothers and sisters in Ukraine need our help.  They are serving those on the front line during the Russian invasion and occupation.

YMCA Ukraine’s Immediate Goals

The first priority is support for YMCA Ukraine itself, in bringing life support to those who have been uprooted by the violence. YMCA Ukraine will be providing accommodation, food, clothing, medicines and personal hygiene products, as well as psychosocial support delivered in groups and individually, to children and young people. These will be delivered through YMCA centers in seven cities: Verkhovyna, Odessa, Lviv, Lutsk, Kremenchug, Kirovograd, Zaporozhye, Zdolbunov.

The second priority is supporting YMCAs in neighboring countries provide the same types of support for those who have fled Ukraine.
