Our initial focus of attention since creation has been to assist the victims of the current conflict in Ukraine. Our organization is a partnership of Ukrainians and Americans with the aim of combining talents and resources to help improve the lives and the living conditions of those less fortunate people struggling for mere existence.
UAOH has the capability to coordinate, arrange, and fund for the transportation of humanitarian assistance from the donor in the United States to the final destination of designated recipients oversea’s; to receive, clear customs, deliver, and distribute humanitarian commodities; and to provide press coverage and final reporting. UAOH has a working relationship with registered recipients in Ukraine and experienced assistance providers to ensure the all assistance reaches to intended beneficiaries.

Starting with Ukraine and in all countries our operations will be identical. UAOH is a non-profit organization with the sole objective of providing essential, emergency humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable population in each targeted country and to medical facilities providing health care to these vulnerable people. It is the goal of UAOH to provide humanitarian assistance by matching donors in the U.S. with the needy beneficiaries in targeted foreign countries. UAOH believes that the most needy populations include; children, the elderly, the disabled, refugees, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), and those suffering from conflicts and disasters. UAOH is dedicated to improving the living conditions of these most vulnerable by positively impacting their daily lives

UAOH was co-founded by Mr. Igor Shulyak, a Ukrainian citizen residing in Ukraine but currently the President of UA Global operating a business in New Jersey, and Gerald Oberndorfer, the former Director of Humanitarian Programs for Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia for the U. S. Department of State.
