Emergency fund for Ukrainian community foundations
Fund for Ednannia
The Fund for Ednannia collects and distributes donations to community foundations in Ukraine.
All funds raised are distributed to ISAR Ednannia for its Emergency Fund. ISAR Ednannia is a Ukrainian national network for the development of local philanthropy.
This fund was established at Berks County Community Foundation in the spring of 2022 to help Ukrainian community foundations address the most pressing needs in their communities.
Examples of initiatives that have so far been supported by the Fund for Ednannia:
Food packages were delivered to 910 households made up of the most vulnerable populations in southern Ukrainian town and 10 nearby villages. Among those assisted were senior citizens who cannot access their pensions during the war, families with children, and people with disabilities. Pictures of this operation are featured below.
New medical equipment — fetal monitors, pulse oximeter monitors, neonatal pulse oximeters, children’s heated mattresses — was delivered to a maternity hospital in in northern Ukraine where other nearby hospitals have been destroyed. The hospital expects the equipment to assist in the delivery of 350 children over six months.
