Ukrainian-American HGAR Member Launches Fundraiser for Ukraine
IRVINGTON—Luba Sydor, a Ukrainian-American Realtor with Houlihan Lawrence’s Irvington office, has launched a fundraising campaign for medical and military supplies for Ukraine’s Dnipro Territorial Defense Battalion, as Russia continues to wage war on the country.
Sydor has established a special Amazon.com shopping list as a convenient way for people to donate much needed supplies:
“As a Ukrainian-American, I am heartbroken at the events transpiring in my beloved ancestral homeland,” said Sydor. “Throughout Ukrainian history, millions of people have given their lives for freedom, dignity and human rights, in order to claim the right to peace and stability, as many other nations enjoy.”
Sydor is also a volunteer with the Barvinok Foundation and the Yonkers School for Ukrainian Studies under the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America.
“The situation in Ukraine has grown even more dire and what we see on the news is a mere snapshot of the actual devastation,” Sydor added. “Our family in Lviv and Kyiv, along with millions of others, are fighting and protecting their country to the end. We all feel so helpless and want to find a way to help, so please consider donating these supplies.”
