Learn about “Concord for Ukraine” Group

Concord for Ukraine is a group of concerned Concord citizens who have come together to raise money and provide medical equipment to those on the frontlines in Ukraine through a Boston-based organization called Ukraine Forward.

Every One Needed.  Together – we can make a difference.

It’s simple: Citizens purchase medical supplies through a carefully cultivated and monitored Amazon WishList. The supplies are collected at Christ the King Ukrainian Catholic Church in Jamaica Plain where packages are boxed and shipped via Air Poland for distribution by Ukrainian volunteer university students in Kyiv. Already this organization has supplied nearly $400,000 in needed medical supplies directly to Ukrainian soldiers and citizen fighters. This war is devastating and senseless. We hope you will join us in this effort.

This event is being offered by Sonia Kowal (daughter of Concord residents Irene and Igor) and sponsored by The Umbrella Arts Center to promote the new community initiative – Concord for Ukraine –  providing medical equipment to Ukrainians on the frontlines through the Boston-based volunteer organization Ukraine Forward.  Ms. Kowal has conducted pysanky workshops at Boston Adult Education Center and Boston College.

A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, “to write” or “to inscribe,” as the designs are not painted on, but written (inscribed) with beeswax.
