Updates on the Ukraine GADRA Team

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 been in touch with approximately 1500 people and has helped over 400 people to evacuate to safety and assisting others who are trapped with complex shelter-in-place needs including food, water, medication, disability assistance and family care.

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. Special thanks to: Google, AT&T, Bristol Myers Squibb, Public Good Software, the Zenkle Family Foundation, Bristol Myers Squibb employees, Text-to-Give and CNN Impact your world donors.
