In response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and the country’s dire need for aid, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America announced a fundraising campaign that will help those most affected by the Russian invasion.
The first action was taken by the archdiocese this morning to donate $100,000 to the Ecumenical Patriarchate to support the efforts of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The archdiocese also announced the creation of the Ukrainian Relief Effort, which was established in collaboration with International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC).
Both organizations launched the campaign with a fundraising goal of $1 million for the immediate and long-term support of the Ukrainian people.
The IOCC is the humanitarian relief and development agency of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops of the United States of America. Since its inception in 1992, IOCC has provided more than $715 million in humanitarian relief and sustainable development programs in over 60 countries worldwide.
Today, IOCC applies its expertise in humanitarian response to natural and manmade crises in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, offering assistance based solely on need.
The link to donate to the Ukrainian Relief Effort is on the archdiocese’s website.
