We facilitate the integration of Ukrainians living in the Netherlands into Dutch society, while helping them to preserve their distinct identity, language, culture, and religious traditions for future generations. Our foundation also aims to provide continuous support and humanitarian aid to Ukraine, especially to areas most affected by Russian occupation and aggression.
Ukrainians in the Netherlands Foundation is a non-profit organization established during the Euromaidan Uprising in 2014. Since then, our foundation has become a point of reference and connection for the Ukrainian-Dutch diaspora, and has also been providing support for and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. From the moment the Russian Federation unjustly invaded Ukraine on 24 February 2022, our foundation has been at forefront of urgent humanitarian assistance for Ukrainian civilians and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as support for refugees and displaced persons in the Netherlands.
Our growing team of 500+ volunteers is tirelessly working day and night to end the war and help those whose lives have been tragically disrupted by it. Our initiatives include:
We coordinate and supply priority assistance for those impacted by the war, whether within Ukraine or beyond its borders
We help thousands of displaced Ukrainians by providing informational support and coordinating mental health support, translation, and humanitarian aid.
We organize initiatives about Ukraine, from informational and cultural events to peaceful demonstrations
We sponsor and support schools, churches, organizations and other social platforms that serve the Ukrainian diaspora and our Dutch allies
