Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, millions of families have been displaced and lack access to food, clean water, medical supplies, and other basic needs. Sheng-Yen Lu Foundation responded to this humanitarian crisis with a $10,000 grant to Razom for emergency response efforts. Razom, which means together in Ukrainian, is an on the ground effort led by Ukrainians to distribute critical supplies to families in need.
Thanks to the generosity of the True Buddha Diamond Temple of New York and several individual donors, Sheng-Yen Lu Foundation was able to make a second grant of $10,500 to the Seattle Chapter of the International Rescue Committee, which set up an unrestricted fund to help all Ukrainian refugees arriving and resettling in Washington state.
Many thanks to everyone for their support of this humanitarian aid to Ukraine!
