We envisioned this event as an opportunity to maintain awareness about the war, raise funds for urgent medical and humanitarian needs, and demonstrate the beauty and power of Ukraine and its people. With this event, we are asking supporters in the United States to help Sunflower of Peace provide as much relief as possible to those suffering in Ukraine,”
