The event was organized by Ukrainian American House in partnership with the Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco, Ukrainian School in Sacramento and Math Club with the support of the Ukrainian community. Two test sessions were offered, both in the first week of June 2024 (June 1 and June 4, 2024). A total of 38 students took the NMT in Sacramento this year. Vlad Skots, Founder and Co-chair of the Ukrainian American House, opened the official part of the event by congratulating the students on successfully passing the test and wishing them success in their academic pursuits. He also emphasized that the organization's doors are always open to those in need of help and highlighted the importance of unity within the local community and among all Ukrainians living abroad. Dmytro Kushneruk, Consul General of Ukraine in San Francisco, delivered a speech emphasizing the importance of community during unstable times and highlighted the value of pursuing education in top-rated Ukrainian universities despite the ongoing Russian aggression. The aim is for the students to return to Ukraine and contribute to its restoration in the social, economic, and cultural spheres. “It’s very important that the Ukrainian government is just creating conditions for them to keep the connection with their country so that people are not refugees forever,” he said. Caroleana Kvaterchuk Allison, Executive Director of UA House, delivered a speech emphasizing the crucial role of education in establishing a platform for effective bilateral cooperation in various spheres, including humanitarian, economic, cultural, educational, social, and political. “The focus on creating opportunities for both Ukraine and the United States aligns with the mission of UA House”, said Allison.

The NMT is coordinated by the Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assessment (UCEQA) directly from Kherson region, Ukraine. This year, the test could be taken on either June 1st or June 4th.

UA House launches a new initiative to support kids suffering from a rare disease

6 May 2024
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 2, 2024, Sacramento, CA - UA House has recently launched a new initiative, aimed to support children suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) by providing collagen patches that are necessary for bandaging and closing wounds to significantly ease the pain and improve the quality of life. Epidermolysis bullosa is a genetic disease that affects a relatively small number of people worldwide, with only half a million cases reported. In Ukraine, individuals with EB are recognized as people with disabilities and can only be treated at Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital in the "Specialized Medical Center for Children with Epidermolysis Bullosa." In these difficult times, especially in the midst of war, the Center requires our support and encouragement to help all its patients. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for EB, but further treatment can help alleviate the pain and manage the condition. People with EB cover their wounds with dry plasters, pay attention to their diet, avoid injuries, and seek treatment for pain-related illnesses to manage their symptoms. Your kind donations will assist us in providing collagen patches that are necessary for bandaging and closing wounds to significantly ease the pain and improve the quality of life for those suffering from EB. EB affects not only the physical health of children but also their psychological well-being, making their everyday lives more challenging and preventing them from enjoying a normal and happy childhood. Epidermolysis bullosa is a rare disease, and only half a million people in the world have it, according to scientists. “This initiative is a testament to our organization's commitment to making a positive impact in the community. We are dedicated to providing the necessary resources and support to these vulnerable children, and we remain hopeful that our efforts will make a significant difference in their lives,” said Caroleana Kvaterchuk Allison, Executive Director of Ukrainian American House.  With a project need of $50,000, your contributions will significantly aid us in acquiring collagen patches, which are crucial for bandaging and closing wounds to significantly ease the pain and improve the quality of life for those suffering from EB. We appreciate your support in this critical matter. If you would like to support this vital cause, please visit our website to donate: https://www.uahouse.org/donate.
