Welcome to Spotlight Ukraine

Voices of pain, anger, hope and celebration.

We are on a mission to keep Ukraine in the spotlight. Through the power of storytelling, advocacy and fundraising, we aim to support the Ukrainian people and celebrate their unique cultural identity. We endeavor to bring together voices from the ground, from aid workers, from volunteers, and from Ukrainian communities around the world to shine a spotlight on what’s happening in Ukraine right now and to share in the vibrancy of Ukrainian culture. We are also raising funds through our shop, our fundraising campaign to support World Central Kitchen and through the promotion of non-profits and fundraising events, to support the Ukrainian people – now, and in the rebuilding that’s to come.
