What’s Your Take?
Від Вас до нас!
A topic that would not be discussed. An event that did not happen or was greatly exaggerated. Rumours of the unthinkable, denials by figures of authority. Truth persevered and today, Ukraine Remembers – the World Acknowledges.

Would you agree that awareness about the Holodomor (1932-33) in your community is growing?

    1. Yes
    1. No
  1. Hard to say / Not sure
Your generosity will make a difference!
100% of the proceeds from our Special Covid-19 Pandemic Appeal will go to our community groups through the Hromada Legacy Fund. Your donation will serve as an investment in maintaining, developing and sharing our Ukrainian identity.
