Why we do what we do
Along with the tragedies, deep injustices, and devastation, the ongoing war in Ukraine has revealed to the world the beauty, ingenuity, incredible resilience, and heroism of the Ukrainian people. Forced by the Russian invasion into this existential fight, Ukrainian men and women have been bravely defending their sovereignty, dignity, and freedom. The lives of millions have been devastated by this war and they need our help; Ukrainians fighting and suffering must know that they are not alone and that the world is not blind to their sacrifice. Join our effort to help save and improve Ukrainian lives and together we will ensure that Ukrainian beauty outshines the dark shadows of the war and the devastation it leaves behind.

About Sunflower of Peace
Sunflower of Peace is a Boston-based non-profit with deep roots in Ukraine and the mission to save lives.
