Saint Andrew’s Society, the philanthropic organization of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, has forwarded $2,400 this Nativity Season to the Center for Elder Care in Mariupol, Ukraine. This is the third such donation in the last 18 months provided to assist the displaced needy senior citizens. The financial gift was passed over to Ukraine by the Mission Team to the orphanages led by His Eminence Archbishop Daniel last December. This support is in addition to the over $240,000 in aid provided by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA (and administered by the Consistory Office of Christian Charity under the leadership of Protodeacon Ihor Mahlay) given to the needy refugees and families of wounded or killed military.

This center that cares for the disenfranchised elderly was originally located in Donetsk and operated by the Church. At the beginning of the hostilities in Eastern Ukraine instigated by the Russian backed insurgents, this center was evicted and elderly, many handicapped, given only several hours to leave. The Church relocated the refugees to Mariupol a city under the control and care of the Ukrainian government. This grant was designated for medicines, hygienic supplies for the elderly and warm meals or food staples during this Christmas Season

St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Orthodox Society was founded in 1990 by the faithful here in the USA as a religious and charitable organization. As an integral ministry of the Church, the Society’s philanthropic mission focuses on providing humanitarian assistance to the needy and supporting church-related projects in Ukraine.

The Society has raised and funded over $1.3 million projects in Ukraine. The major effort most recently supported by St. Andrew’s Society has focused on charitable outreach.
