On February 24, 2022, the Russian military began an all-out assault on the sovereign country of Ukraine. As a result, families were torn apart, and day-to-day survival became the new normal for the citizens of Ukraine.
The United States has a special bond with the National Police Department of Ukraine. Many U.S. police officers have been deployed to Ukraine to assist with reforms after the Maidan Revolution in 2014. As a result of this bond, we are receiving information directly from officers either deployed to combat area checkpoints or are operating checkpoints in their own communities. These long deployments and the current state of war has created a severe financial strain for many of the officers and their families, and financial assistance is needed directly to the officers and their families. This fund will assist with day-to-day needs as they are made known.Donate Now
