Dear friends,

Last year we received an E-mail from Ukraine, from an American Peace volunteer working at a University in the city of Kryvyj Rih in Ukraine. She is helping them organize a library and asked us if we could help with donating books. You were very generous with your response, and we collected more than 200 books. You also donated money to pay for the shipment of the books when we went caroling in January. Thanks to one of our members, Larysa Pevna, who works at the School of Medicine at UNC, we also got a lot of books on medicine and public health. As the university at Kryvyj Rih does not have a School of Medicine or of Public Health, we decided to donate these books to the National University “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, as they recently opened the first School of Public Heath in Ukraine.

This Sunday, April 22, 2007, starting at 11:30 AM, we will gather all the books at the Church in Garner, NC, and get them ready for shipping to Ukraine. If you have any books you can spare (they can be on any subject and can be in English, Ukrainian, Spanish or French), please bring them to the church this Sunday. Also we could use some help packing the books, as they have to be boxed, weighed and catalogued.

Thank you very much for your assistance,

Oleh Wolowyna
