Šiandien Ukrainos žmonės kovoja ir už mūsų visų laisvę. Todėl kviečiame susivienyti ir padeti kovojantiems, nukentėjusiems, sužeistiems ir išgyvenantiems karo siaubą . Ukrainos žmonėms yra reikalinga ne tik moralinė, bet ir materialine parama .
JAV LB yra atidariusi bendrą sąskaitą kur galima aukoti įvairiais būdais https://javlb.org/ukraina/Pinigai bus/yra pervedami į Europos šalis kaip Vokietija, per Rotariečius, kad gretų nupirkti reikalingų prekių ir perduotų Ukrainai.Tačiau situacija yra tokia, kaip pavyzdžiui Europoje jau trūksta miegmaišių, pirmos pagalbos vaistinėlių, o vaistų Lietuva kol kas iš vis negali teikti dėl kažkokių įstatymų.Tad čia galime mes padėti. Šiuo metu renkame miegmaišius ir siunčiame į Čikagą, į Pasaulio Lietuvių Centrą iš kur bus siunčiami .Kviečiame prisidėti prie šios akcijos.Pvz Nebraskos apylinkė per dvi dienas surinko 100 miegmaišių ir nesustoja. Mes, Vakaru pakrantėje, Los Angele galime daugiau.Nereikia bėgti į krautuves, užsakykite internetu ir siųskite adresu, žr skelbimą.PSAmazon dar yra, bet leidžia po 4 vienu metu.Dalinkimės-jei ne pagalba, bent informacija.

She will speak to our students about the events in war-torn Ukraine.You are most welcome to come and listen to her talk.The Center is preparing a huge planeload of supplies.
