Kahng-Diotte Family Fundraiser to Help Ukranian Refugee Children

by Shaz Kahng




Campaign has ended


Hi friends,

The war in the Ukraine has impacted so many of the brave people in that country. Our family (Bill, Shaz, and our 12 year old daughters Gemma and Zoe) wanted to help the Ukranian people out in some way. So we are heading to Siedlce, Poland in July to volunteer at a summer camp for Ukranian refugee children. The trip is organized by a great organization called Global Volunteers which conducts volunteer programs around the world to assist people in need.

We'll be teaching English to the kids, playing games with them, taking them on day trips, and trying to bring some joy into their lives so they can feel like carefree, happy kids again, even if for a short while.

Typically, families raise funds to cover the $10K fee we paid to participate in the camp, but we are not asking for that- we are asking friends to consider donating to the program in Poland so the organization is able to offer more summer camps to more Ukranian kids. Thanks for helping out this wonderful program!

Warm wishes,

Shaz, Bill, Gemma and Zoe

Global Volunteers' mission is to connect people worldwide to wage peace and promote justice through service. Our goal is to sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their communities, so they can realize the full promise of their human potential. Each Global Volunteer plays a significant role in positively impacting the people they serve and the communities they visit

Working on teams of up to 20 individuals, volunteers participate in one-to-three-week service opportunities where they create, nurture, and sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their families. Volunteers are welcomed into homes, classrooms, clinics, community centers, hospitals, orphanages, childcare centers, libraries, government offices, farm fields, and more on exceptional international service-learning programs providing essential services of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Volunteers work with and learn from and about local people who are making real change in their communities to help children grow and thrive.

By supporting volunteers' efforts, you contribute directly to the future success of children in partner communities. Your generous donation to your chosen volunteer ensures that these services continue year-round. Thank you for making this investment in the future of our world - our children!
