UCARE Summer Camp

It's that time of year again--summer camp season. UCARE will once more be sponsoring a summer camp for orphans in Ukraine. As always, we are short on funds, as raising funds in Ukraine is quite difficult due to the current election campaign and war; so I'm asking those of you who can to help out.  Every little bit helps.

The camp is not huge, about thirty kids plus staff. Last year it cost us about $400 per kid to transport them across all of Ukraine, feed and clothe and house them for two weeks, take them on several local excursions, and to pay for supplies for arts, crafts, sports and other activities, as well as to house and feed our support staff (most of whom are volunteers). It's a great deal.

None of this money goes towards my transportation or costs. I pay my own way, and spend hundreds of dollars on stuff for camp.

Camp is a wonderful experience for all of us. Because we keep it fairly small, by the end we all know each other and have become one big happy family. The kids--and staff--cry when the buses pull away on the last day.......

If you've got a few extra bucks, and want to give a poor kid a lifetime of good memories, click on the link below and help us out.

Thanks! Щиро дякуємо!

GoFundMe currently only charges charities the credit card fees; there are no additional fees on top of that. 

If you prefer to donate by check, you can send a check made out to "UCARE Inc." and send it either to me, or to our treasurer at

Thanks to everyone who has already donated, and thanks again for your continued support!
