Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership

The mission of the Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership is to establish goodwill, understanding and cooperation between the people of Cincinnati and the people of Kharkiv and thereby to develop lasting friendships and increased exchange of ideas, goods and services between our two cities.  We believe that our cooperation will enhance civic, cultural and economic potential for both cities. We, in Cincinnati, hope to share our ideas and experiences in the development of individual liberty, human rights and freedom, democracy, market economy and entrepreneurial skills.  Our Program is recognized as one of the most successful and active sister city relationships in the U.S.A. and one of the most active of all USA-NIS sister city pairs.




Cincy4Ukraine was established by a dedicated and passionate group of American-Ukrainian individuals committed to making a positive difference in the lives of those affected by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Their primary mission is to provide essential support and resources to the most vulnerable communities and individuals, offering hope and assistance during these challenging times. They strive to deliver vital aid in the form of medical supplies, first aid kits, clothes, and more.  Together, we can bring hope, rebuild lives, and create a stronger and more resilient Ukraine


Hope4Ukraine is a non-profit organization founded in February of 2022 in response to the Russian invasion. Hope4Ukraine has consistently been sending help directly to Ukrainian communities since the war started. We see our purpose and mission as an organization to raise funds and channel them directly to verified contacts in Ukraine assisting those who are in dire need and who are often not being reached by outside organizations. Our regular recipients include volunteers who buy and deliver food and medical supplies, hospitals, orphanages etc. Join us and let’s help Ukraine together.

Ukrainian National Women’s League of America

Established in 1925, the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America (UNWLA) is the longest-running and largest Ukrainian women’s organization in the US. Our mission is to promote and develop educational and cultural efforts and provide humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians worldwide. We are guided by principles of Christian ethics, religious tolerance, political non-partisanship, and universal respect for human rights. Branch #144 was created in Cincinnati in August 2023 to proudly carry on the tradition of the national organization in our Tristate community.

USA with Ukraine 

Our mission is to support Ukraine and help to save as many precious Ukrainian lives as possible in this cruel war. We keep a wide range of connections with Ukrainian volunteers and non-profit organizations that distribute supplies on the Ukrainian side and in the US.  We organize events and collect funds to ship humanitarian aid directly to those in need in Ukraine. We ship on a monthly basis, such as medical supplies, shoes and clothes, school items for kids and equipment for the first responders. We helped more than 20,000 people directly, including elderly and sick victims of war, firefighters in the city of Kharkiv, and we have 300 refugee kids in Vinnitsa that are under our care.  We keep in touch with local artists, writers and representatives of the local art community to benefit their ability in spreading the information about Ukraine.
