My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Universal Aid for Children, Inc., Miami, FL, USA
My family has been donating to the UAC for over a year. The UAC has several programs that are geared towards helping Ukraine and its people. The UAC programs range from helping Refugee Relief, to Healthcare, to programs geared towards helping young adults without families to make it on their own. My family donates to the latter and currently sponsors two young adults in Ukraine. Irina and the UAC staff work tirelessly to help these young adults monetarily, spiritually and emotionally. They encourage the young adults that there is hope and a good life for them if they work hard.
My family has monthly emails with our two sponsored young adults, and it is heartwarming to hear how they are doing. To have them know that a family is helping them and caring to write them each month goes a long way to building their self-esteem and to give them hope for the future.
I cannot say enough good things about this program. The UAC also attends Ukrainian festivals in the US to spread the word about the need to support these worthy programs. If you are looking to support a worthy organization and make a difference in the lives of Ukrainians - this organization does it honestly and compassionately.
On a separate note, we adopted our daughter from Ukraine. We know first-hand that it is not possible for everyone to adopt an orphan, one can pray and support them as they turn into adults and that makes a big difference in their lives.
