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.

UA House in partnership with Humane Society International (HSI) responds to the pet crisis in Ukraine by launching 'Helping Paws' Initiative

25 April 2024
April 18, 2024, Sacramento, CA.: Ukrainian American House (UA House), in partnership with Humane Society International (HSI), responds to the pet crisis in Ukraine by launching 'Helping Paws' Initiative . Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has resulted in a severe crisis in animal care. Countless animals are suffering from a lack of shelter and food. Despite the constant threat of shelling and occupation, brave Ukrainians are tirelessly working to save these animals. Helping Paws is an initiative of Ukrainian American House, in partnership with Humane Society International (HSI) responding to the pet crisis in Ukraine. Together, we have established a distribution network to provide humanitarian aid to animals in areas where they are most in need. We are committed to delivering hundreds of tons of food to shelters that have been thoroughly vetted. The statistics surrounding the full-scale invasion of Ukraine are indeed shocking. Due to the current situation, it has been reported that every month, more than 1000 animals in frontline areas are in need of serious medical treatment. Furthermore, the number of animals in shelters on frontline territories has increased by more than 100%, with more than 500 shelters currently in need of sponsorship. By donating now, you can help purchase truckloads of emergency food to send to shelters caring for pets and other distribution centers within Ukraine.
