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 exhibition of Ukrainian children's drawings, collected by the charitable family foundation "The Cifers Foundation", received an unexpected, but very powerful sound. Now it can be seen by millions of people from different parts of the world who fly to the capital of the USA, to the Washington airport.

The exposition presents works created by children in Ukraine and those who were forced to leave their homes, fleeing from hostilities to different parts of the world. Young artists depicted their families, hometowns and villages, courageous defenders. The drawings are full of strength, love and firm belief in the victory of good over evil. And this is the message of Ukrainian children to the world.

In the beginning of the school year, the Embassy of Ukraine in Moldova handed over the Books for Preschoolers to the Chisinau Lyceum named after M. Kotsiubinsky, which was financed by the Cifers family foundation. This Lyceum was chosen because the Ukrainian language is studied there.

The Books for Preschoolers are printed by the Kyiv publishing house "Samit-Knyga". Books are intended for children aged 5-6 who were forced to leave Ukraine to escape the war. The Cifers foundation supported the project for Ukrainian children to learn their native language even in a foreign country. The books are distributed in various European countries, especially Poland.

"Thank you all for your cooperation! Ukrainian children in Moldova wand to remember their native language!" – wrote Svitlana Melnychuk, representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, on her Facebook page.





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.
