Supporting Ukraine

Dear Friends,

Less than a week after our last newsletter we watched with horror as the atrocities in Ukraine began to violently unfold. Rather than updating you on ViVA's recent activities, we feel it is important to focus this installment on links to reputable charities serving those who are fighting for Ukraine's sovereignty and fleeing from Russia's criminal assaults, including Ukrainian artists and the cultural sector.

Hoping for peace,

Dr. Natalie Marsh
Co-founder, Executive Director & Chief Curator
