CNEWA has been active in Ukraine since the unraveling of the Soviet Union, of which it was once an important component. Much of our funding support has been directed to the formation of young men and women — to serve as priests, religious and catechists — through the Ukrainian Catholic University and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.
Many of these same men and women who now serve as leaders in the parishes, eparchies and communities are mobilized today to help those fleeing the instability and violence in southeastern Ukraine. And CNEWA is there, providing the help centers established by Caritas Ukraine and the Major Archeparchy of Kiev.
Thanks to our benefactors, our support began in the earliest days of the conflict, in 2014, and includes food supplies, clothes and other essentials for those displaced by war.
