For decades, The Associated has been there for the Jewish community in Ukraine. We’ve helped thousands escape antisemitism while living under the former Soviet Union regime – supported them as they built a new life in the United States and Israel. We created our Baltimore-Odessa Partnership and helped to revitalize Jewish life in Odessa, while at the same time continuing to care for the city’s most vulnerable.
Today, we watch in horror as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine creates a massive humanitarian crisis. Millions are attempting to leave the country, facing long, grueling and uncertain journeys – others remain, trapped in conflict zones, struggling to stay safe and find access to food, medicine and other essential supplies.
The Associated is committed to supporting its partners on the ground in Ukraine, providing immediate aid to individuals and families impacted by the crisis, while ensuring the well-being and safety of those who are fleeing.
