Ukrainian American organization to assist hurricane victims
Philadelphia The awful horror which overwhelmed the lives of the residents of New Orleans and its vicinity also touched Ukrainians living in the area. Luckily, three Ukrainian students who were studying in New Orleans, Oleksij Luhovyj, Nazar Trebot and Oleh Krutyj managed to evacuate in time, and are safely ensconced in a hotel in Dallas, TX. Nonetheless, the Ukrainian Embassy continues to receive telephone calls from families and friends of Ukrainian residents of New Orleans that have not been heard from, and is actively involved in the search for the missing victims.
UUARC appeals to Ukrainian Americans to send financial help for those who are suffering. Please send checks or money orders to:
UUARC New Orleans Fund
1206 Cottman Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19111
