The Work and the Cost

The work of GADRA and Fight for Right continues at a fervent pace as case managers, resource personnel and a growing cadre of volunteers come together for the life, safety and wellbeing of Ukrainians with disabilities.

Fight For Right has a caseload of over 7,690 people and has successfully assisted 4,487 Ukrainians with disabilities and their loved ones while sheltering-in-place and with coordination of evacuations.

Every day we see evidence of people helping people. Volunteers, agencies, and a growing network on the ground are joined by generous corporate and foundation funders, and individuals using the links and text-to-give options joining together in a global community of care in the face of horror.

Joining in support of Fight for Right and GADRA, funders and donors have raised over $385,000 for Ukrainians with disabilities.
