" Ukrainian-born Nataliia Karpenko returned to the US in February 2022 just before the war erupted. Still unable to leave Ukraine, her family moved to another, hopefully, safer location. Natallia, who is already familiar with charity organizational structures and has a marketing background in the healthcare industry, has been organizing fund drives and orchestrating proper channels to ensure assistance gets to the right sources for distribution.
VALERI BOCAGE, FOUNDER/CEO, POWERFUL WOMEN INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS
A connector from the Powerful Women International Connections (PWIC) network, introduced Natallia to the founder, Valeri Bocage, and from there, the story of a partnership unfolds with efforts to expand the impact to help Ukrainian women and families currently living in cold bomb shelters. Powerful Women International Connections (PWIC) is a company that connects, educates, and collaborates with women humanitarian leaders to make a Bigger Impact in society. PWIC Global Impact was founded as a nonprofit to build sustainable communities and improve lives.
Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek (a PWIC member) recorded this conversation with the two partners to share on 2022 International Women’s Day not only as a tribute to the influence and power women can have when collectively directed, but as a call to action for the global sisterhood to engage with voices, assistance, and prayers.

"Ukrainian Children and Mothers Immediate AID" Program
Focused on helping mothers and children from Ukraine during Russian war. The donation will provide the funds:
1) For direct financial support
2) For the local assistance group in Ukrainian cities to purchase the most critical, necessary goods for the newborn, children and their families until they can evacuate.
There are shortage of:
basic goods such as warm clothes, heaters, phone charging batteries, sleeping bag, floor mats, food and water.
immediate medical supplies for women giving birth, sick children and wounded.
products for kids such as pampers, blankets, food, etc.
building supplies to improve a very outdated bomb shelter and basement.
money and cash for mothers for the immediate needs for the grocery, pharmacy, gas, phone payments, transportation, etc.
We’ve developed ( and continue developing) the network of the local partners in the cities of the Ukraine to make the purchasing and daily distribution among women and vulnerable. So far we’ve supported the following organization in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa.
