"I don't need motivation to have a desire to help Ukrainian refugees during the war in Ukraine. Every pain and every obstacle of a Ukrainian on the path of adaptation in another country is my personal pain and difficulties as a Ukrainian. Fear for the future, stress from loss and pain for the fate of our country, what I read every day in the eyes of Ukrainians, what each of us experiences in our own way. I also see opportunities on my own way and share them with newly arrived Ukrainians. I want to see more smiles and relief on the faces of Ukrainians who ended up in the USA because of the war on our native land.

This site is a resource to help anyone who has recently arrived in the USA. Our projects are help in practice. And we have great hope to be able to continue helping Ukrainians in the United States to make their way easier. Glory to Ukraine! Glory to every heart that fights every day for the independence of Ukraine and the sovereignty of our country from the beginning of the full-scale invasion and long before it."

"I've fought for freedom in Belarus and know the pain of losing a home. Ukraine has always felt like a friendly neighboring country to me. I have friends there, and even if I'm miles away, I'm committed to helping. I can try to help those who were forced to move, in hopes they find a new home here in the U.S. I believe this project can help someone make their path easier. Long live freedom Belarus! Glory to Ukraine!"
