You know that powerless feeling you have in the pit of your stomach when you hear bad news, knowing you can’t do anything to help? This story offers a small antidote to that. When my dear friend Dr. Nora Dunbar told me about this project, I felt a spark of optimism.
NAU’s Department of Psychological Sciences is bringing 3 Ukrainian psychology students to Flagstaff to help them to complete their interrupted education. It’s just three students, but think about the impact this could have. These displaced students can be empowered to be part of rebuilding a stronger Ukraine after they are able to return home.
Some of the applicants have lost their homes, and a few have small children. NAU is covering their tuition, health insurance, and a small stipend but the students will still need financial support for travel and other living expenses.
Want to help? Two ways:
1. Make a donation here to ensure that this project is a success. The deadline is August 26th.
Send us confirmation of your donation and you’ll be entered to win a free session with KDI Photography. (Terms and conditions apply.)
2. Offer housing.
No or low cost housing is needed – a room in a house, a mother-in-law unit, or a small home for example. If you are interested in housing or hosting a graduate student please contact Nora.Dunbar@nau.edu .
