The $1K project: new financial assistance to Ukrainians
Ukrainians who, as a result of a full-scale war, were forced to seek shelter around the world can apply for financial assistance from The $1K project in the amount of 1,000 US dollars. Find out how to apply and who is eligible for benefits
As a result of the war, millions of Ukrainians faced dire situations that negatively affected their standard of living. Russian invaders destroy homes, burn villages and destroy everything in their path. A special sponsorship program called "The $1K project" was created for people affected by the war.
The $1K project is a project thanks to which sponsors from the USA can provide financial assistance to Ukrainian families affected by the war. The process of receiving aid is quite simple, because after the application is approved, the funds are transferred to a personal card. The $1K project started working on helping the victims almost immediately after the beginning of the russian invasion. Over 10,000 families and about 35,000 young Ukrainians have received financial assistance from sponsors.
Who can count on financial assistance under The $1K project program?
• Any Ukrainian family that has felt the consequences of the terrible war can count on help from sponsors from the USA. Due to the fact that the program is designed specifically for families, an independent person cannot receive financial assistance. The age of the family members does not matter, as does the current territorial location of the family, so funds can be received not only by those who still live in the territory of Ukraine, but also by those families who have left for safety.
• Subscriptions to the official pages of the project in social networks, namely Instagram and Facebook, are a mandatory condition for receiving financial assistance. This is a necessary condition for personal verification, so if you do not use these social media, you need to join them, because without fulfilling this condition, your application will not be considered. Please note that your social media pages must be open for your application to be considered.
