Uniting for Ukraine

Dalit Solidarity, a nonprofit and a tax-exempt charity is looking for Sponsorship of the Ukrainian Families who are refugees now in their own homeland and in Europe under President Joe Biden New Program “Uniting for Ukraine” that allows them to travel to the United States for two years with work-permit.  Here below is the summary of the program:

On April 21, 2022, the United States announced a key step toward fulfilling President Biden’s commitment to welcome Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s invasion. Uniting for Ukraine provides a pathway for Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members who are outside the United States to come to the United States and stay temporarily in a two-year period of parole. Ukrainians participating in Uniting for Ukraine must have a supporter in the United States who agrees to provide them with financial support for the duration of their stay in the United States.

The first step in the Uniting for Ukraine process is for the U.S.-based supporter to file a Form I-134, Declaration of Financial Support, with USCIS. The U.S. government will then vet the supporter to ensure that they are able to financially support the individual whom they agree to support.  For More info:  Uniting for Ukraine | Homeland Security (dhs.gov)
