Florida for Ukraine was born in February 2022, but it fills like we have been dealing with the Ukrainian crisis for years. It all started with one rally in Hallandale on one of the worst days in history. Florida for Ukraine became the leading pro-Ukrainian organization in Florida, and one of the top Ukrainian organizations in the US. Since the beginning of the war, FL4UA managed to send more than 40 tons of humanitarian and medical aid and hundreds of shipments of special protective equipment to our defenders.
FL4UA helped more than 600 Ukrainian families of refugees and will continue to provide full support and help to needed people.
Our goal is to make Ukraine and its people fast recovery from social and economic crises and help to build a stronger country aligned with democratic values and bring Ukraine to the same level as European countries and the USA.
