Fundraiser for European Notre Dame Sisters supporting Ukrainians
We are raising matched funds until midnight to send to our Sisters caring for Ukrainian refugees
Information about the terror in Ukraine and the number of people trying to flee is growing every day. After speaking with our fellow Notre Dame Sisters in Eastern Europe, we have a clearer picture of what they are doing to help. This is our time to support them.
- The Sisters in the Czech Republic are housing refugees from Ukraine. After Mass on the feast of St. Joseph, Ukrainian refugees prepared their specialty foods and a concert, “Light for the Ukraine,” was held in the chapel of the Sisters.
- In Slovakia, which is on the border of Ukraine, Sisters house and care for of 13 refugees. They also welcome refugees crossing into Slovakia offering information on local services.
- Sisters in small towns help provide food and clothing.
- Others are donating weeks of their time working at the Ukrainian border with volunteers.
We are raising funds with a $3,000 match.
The funds will be sent to the Generalate, the headquarters of the Sisters in the Czech Republic, to be distributed as needed to support refugees on several fronts.
