CNEWA is grateful for all of the donations given to help the Ukrainian people. And yet, many have asked what more they can do. Here are a few suggestions to consider:
Spread the word with advertisements and flyers.
CNEWA has created these easy to print ads that may be posted on bulletin boards within your community or placed in a pew (with your pastor’s permission!) in the back of your parish church. You can encourage others to do the same.
Share CNEWA’s Ukrainian campaign page on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media channels. Here is the link: https://cnewa.org/campaigns/ukraine/
If you have not done so already, please “like” and follow CNEWA on social media. Every time you engage with CNEWA on social media, the more likely other people will do so as well.

Gather in hope
Consider bringing people together to pray and support the people of Ukraine. CNEWA can help you organize an in-person or online gathering to spread a message of hope; if there is enough lead time, CNEWA can provide a speaker for an event in your community or to make a virtual presentation to your parish, school, community center or home.
