CRISIS IN UKRAINE
Sadly, the War continues in Ukraine, taking a tragic toll on the population and decimating the country.
With the Ukrainian Military having repelled Russia from the Kyiv Region, our central office in Kyiv has reopened. We have resumed our work, helping and supporting the orphans in Ukraine. Some orphans have relocated, some left Ukraine. We are establishing contact with all of them and are providing them with monetary aid regardless of their location.
We have received donations from strangers from around the world via our website since the War began. We are using these donations to increase the monetary aid each orphan receives and to provide monetary aid to orphans awaiting sponsorship. A portion of the donations we are retaining in anticipation that when the War finally ends, and orphans and their caretakers return, some may find their homes destroyed and will require assistance rebuilding their lives. It will be our duty to help them.
We have been contacted by sister charities, corporations and individuals, looking to help Ukraine. To some we gave advice, others we guided in the right direction based on their preference of aid, and with a few we are in discussions to partner aiding our orphans.
We are extremely grateful to everyone for their generous support and understanding as we continue our mission in Ukraine.

HELPING ORPHANS SINCE 1992
With over 25 years of experience, the Orphan's Aid Society (OAS) has been providing relief for the orphans of Ukraine, helping them gain independence and lead productive, fulfilled lives.
Remembering Lucy Lebedowicz,
Our Long Time Board Member.
May Her Memory Be Eternal.
Maria Jowyk founded Orphans Aid Society in 1992 to aid and support orphans in Ukraine. Over the years, through Maria Jowyk’s hard work, OAS grew into a grass roots organization throughout Ukraine. Thousands of orphans became recipients of Maria Jowyk’s love and care. They received monetary aid, clothing and support. Many finished higher education, became professionals, and went on to lead full, productive lives. As a result of Maria Jowyk’s dedication, persistence, and love for Ukraine, Orphans Aid Society thrives to this day, continuing her great legacy.
