"The war in Ukraine became a great tragedy of the 21st century. It broke the lives of millions of Ukrainians, took away their health and loved ones, and destroyed families, homes, and plans for the future. We share the pain of the Ukrainian people, and in order to support Ukraine in a difficult time, in March 2022, we founded THE CIFERS FOUNDATION.Today we report on the first year of our work with deep gratitude to partners who supported our charitable initiatives. We sincerely thank everyone who wrote to us, trusted us, waited, understood, and did not lose hope. Thank you for your patience and warm feedback about our Foundation. We are sure that every good deed makes the day brighter and the world healthier. Therefore, we continue to help Ukraine with firm faith in the victory of Light, Good, and Love!" - Sincerely, Luther and Anastasia Cifers.


3 shelters for refugees were organized in Warsaw (Poland) and Farmville (Virginia, USA). The first shelters for Ukrainian migrants were organized in March 2022 in Warsaw. In October, the first shelter in Farmville, Virginia, received the refugees. Mothers with children, senior citizens, and even animals received temporary shelter and comprehensive assistance in shelters.

350 families received financial support from $100 to $5,000. During 2022, we provided financial support to Ukrainian families with children who lost their family members, homes, jobs, or were forced to relocate due to Russian hostilities and occupation. The program was implemented in cooperation with the "Dream" Foundation.

Almost 1,000 human stories of Ukrainian families have been collected by the foundation's volunteers. An information base of Ukrainian families in need of urgent assistance has been created. For the most part, these are large families from the East of Ukraine. To support the affected families, a program has been launched to find American families who take a Ukrainian family under their patronage for long-term care.

Personal correspondence from families:
"You are doing incredible things! You see, it's just a miracle!"
"Thank you for the hope!"
"Many were filled in, but you were the first to respond, and gave hope for help!"
"I received funds and an account. Sincere thanks to you and all good people involved in good deeds!"
"Thank you very much, I received the money. Very timely and unexpected before the New Year. You are doing a great job at this difficult time."

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia on the territory of Ukraine, 350 Ukrainian families have already received one-time personal financial assistance in the amount of 100 to 5000 dollars within the charity program of the Cifers Foundation.

This financial support was received by families with children who suffered from russian aggression: they lost their housing and means of livelihood, are in the occupied territory, or were forced to relocate. A significant part of these families lived in the territories of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kyiv, and other regions where hostilities are still being conducted.

Every day, the Foundation receives words of gratitude from program beneficiaries. Here are just a few of them:

"You are doing incredible things! We suppose, it's just a miracle!"

"Thank you for the hope!"

Ivan Yushchenko, a resident of the village of Kotsyubynske in the Kyiv region, became the MMA World Champion in the weight category of 77.1 kg among youth. The 2022 MMA World Mixed Martial Arts Championship was held in the capital of Serbia, Belgrade. More than half a thousand athletes from 63 countries of the world took part in the competition.

Ivan fought five battles and won all of them. In the final match, he defeated an athlete from Armenia - Spartak Mikailyan.

At the announcement of the result after the final match, Ivan came out wearing a T-shirt with the image of his friend and comrade, Ukrainian mixed martial arts champion Eduard Kostrytsy, who died near Bakhmut at war.

More than 250 Ukrainian families have already received financial assistance. Ukraine suffers from hundreds of rockets every day. Because of this, Ukrainian families with young children are often forced to stay in basements, without electricity, in the cold, without income, without medicine, and even without food. The purpose of this new "Adopt a Ukrainian Family" program is to connect families from the USA who wish to personally help a Ukrainian family with pressing financial needs. Using messaging apps and translation apps as needed, the families on both sides can communicate directly with each other, sharing their experiences and offering their love and support. This connection can be made regardless of whether or not the donation goes through The Cifers Foundation. We hope for your golden hearts. Please read the details in the presentation below.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of russia on the territory of Ukraine, the Cifers family fund has constantly supported Ukraine, providing systematic assistance to its defenders and civilians. As part of the charity project, 100 Ukrainian families received one-time personal assistance in the amount of $100 to $5,000. By the end of the year, the fund plans to provide such assistance to another 100 Ukrainian families.

“Our family is grateful to the Cifers Foundation for providing financial support to us. Today, during a full-scale war, we stay in Ukraine, and for me, as a mother of many children, this is very important. Thank you," writes Svitlana Zhavoronkova, a mother of 3 children.

"Thanks to the Cifers family from the USA, 10 families from different villages of Chaplin, Kakhovsky, Bilozerske, Khersonsky districts, Lepetykha and Novaya Kakhovka received direct financial assistance. Among them is a family in occupation with a baby who is just 20 days old," adds Larisa Polska, head of the board of the Kherson Community Foundation "Zahust".

"All my life I will be grateful that we are safe and can help our native country in this difficult time. Thank you for the fact that my children do not hear explosions and have the opportunity to return home after victory and build a new country. I want everyone to know about the tremendous help provided by the Cifers Foundation to families abroad and the Ukrainian army," writes Svitlana Chaurova.


The Cifers Foundation was founded by Cifers family to help Ukraine and its people, who are fighting hard against the Russian aggressor. We help with military protective equipment and other things needed to protect people and settlements. We also aid families affected by the fighting.
