Help Us Provide Emergency Aid For Ukraine

100% of all donations will be used to provide humanitarian relief to refugees and our brothers and sisters suffering in Ukraine right now.
Those in need will be supplied with food, water, clothing, shelter, medicine, etc. Thank you for caring and for showing immense generosity. God bless you.

If you are able, please make a donation to help the faithful of Ukraine.

The contemplative Benedictines of Solonka, in Ukraine, near Lviv, are used to silence and solitude. But because of the crisis, they have opened their doors. Since the end of February 2022, they have assisted hundreds of needy families,  helping to feed them and shelter them. May God bless them.


Prayer for Ukraine: Lord, we ask You to give peace, we pray for the defenders of Ukraine, we pray for the people, for the refugees, we pray for the conversion of Vladimir Putin, we pray that we begin Lent and we go through it to your Resurrection. We realize that every crucifixion lived in you, every cross gives in life. May the Mother of God cover Ukraine and the world under her mantle. Amen 
Archbishop Metropolitan Borys Gudziak

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the faithful of Ukraine.
As Bishop Pavlo Honcharuk of Kharkiv told us, “The situation is getting worse every day.  We live now from hour to hour.”

 ACN has supported the Church in Ukraine for more than 70 years. With the help of our donors, we will not abandon her now.

A Catholic charity serving our suffering and persecuted brothers and sisters around the world since 1947
