Join the Embassy of Ukraine in Australia and the AFUO’s Future Ukraine fund at an Evening to Protect, Save and Rebuild Ukraine to raise funds for United24, a global initiative of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
This exclusive fundraising dinner will feature Jamala, one of Ukraine’s biggest music stars and the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016.
Our guest speaker from the frontlines will be the world-famous, tough and fearless Ukrainian female medic and Invictus athlete Yulia “Taira” Paievska, who documented the russian destruction of Mariupol on bodycam and survived russian captivity for three months.
Jamala will be supported by members of the well-known Sydney soul band The Bluesberries, who produced the hauntingly beautiful six-track EP Blue Skies in early December 2022 in collaboration with 70 Australian and Ukrainian musicians to raise funds for Ukraine via UNHCR. Talented violinist and singer Mar’yana Sywak will join The Bluesberries, and will play during cocktail hour.
Our goal is to raise funds for a targeted United24 project: the rebuilding of a school destroyed by Russian missile attacks – the Velykokostromska Gymnasium, a branch of the Zelenodolsk Lyceum, in the Dnipropetrovsk Region. The school was the only educational institution in the village for 250 students, and included a primary/high school, pre-school and gym.
