The situation in Ukraine is no longer news, and other world events are coming to the fore. It used to dominate all of the world’s media but has now faded from the headlines. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that the situation on the ground has improved, and does not require our attention and assistance. The war is still dragging on, and people still need our help. Donations and foundations that help the victims of the war face the challenge of fundraising is becoming increasingly difficult. People are no longer as engaged or interested in the issue, and raising money has become a challenge. However, we cannot let this discourage us from continuing to support these funds and help those in need.

One nonprofit organization that continues to provide crucial support to those affected by the war is Jookender. It is an inclusive, friendly, warm and welcoming community organization that serves Russian-speaking Jewish families in the Greater Boston metropolitan area. Since the beginning of the war, Jookender’s team jumped into action and first started providing aid to women and children who have been impacted by the conflict. Our work includes providing psychological support, medical assistance and material aid to those who need it most. We have been working tirelessly to support those in need, despite the challenges we face.

As mentioned above, one of the challenges facing aid organizations is the difficulty of arranging fundraisers. It’s easy to become discouraged by the lack of support, but we must remain steadfast in our efforts. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference. It’s important to remember that we are not alone in our support of Jookender and other organizations like it. There are countless people around the world who care deeply about the situation in Ukraine and want to help in any way they can.

One of the great things about supporting Jookender is knowing that your help is not wasted. We are in constant communication with those we help and ensure that every parcel we send goes to those in need. Donations and financial assistance do not disappear “to nowhere.” Jookender is always in touch with those we help, and we can make sure the funds are used for their intended purpose.

As the situation in Ukraine fades from the headlines, it’s important to remember that the needs of those affected by the conflict have not diminished. The conflict continues to affect countless families, and they require our support. It’s up to us to ensure that aid organizations like Jookender have the resources we need to continue our vital work. We cannot let the difficulty of raising funds discourage us from helping those who need it most.
