Catholic Voice Emergency Project
Ukraine is at war. Ukraine is suffering. So the Catholic Media lacks funds. There is a risk for the Church to lose its voice.

Who We Are
Ukrainian Catholic Press Association (UCPA) is a group of professional Catholic Media.
The Association was born in 2015 in Lviv. Members of UCPA are Media of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine. In the beginning, all the members were the press Media: journals and magazines. The main purpose is to help with the promotion and distribution. Our associated members are also professional Catholic online Media and radio stations.
UCPA is acting with the permission and blessing of the Church Authorities. It has 6 Members and 3 Associated Members. You can see the list with links for their websites here.
As you imagine, the Media can’t be functioning without employees. The salary of each is about 600 euro / 650 US dollars. We know very well that we won’t be able to sell the next issue of our magazines or receive donations from our Ukrainian followers. But we also know that we cannot stop working and we must save our staff to keep the voice of the Church clear. The same difficult situation is experienced by all Ukrainian Catholic Media: printed editions, online, radio.
The impact of each Catholic Media is in the range from 2000 to 20 000 Ukrainian readers/listeners daily. Basically, the staff of one Catholic Media is composed of 4 workers. We need to save about 70 workplaces for catholic journalists. This would save the audience of minimum 100 000 people informed about the initiatives of the Catholic Church in Ukraine.

How Can You Help Us
You can help us to provide 1/3 of the salaries for catholic journalists in Ukraine. If we could grant the 300 euro / 300 US dollars monthly (which is the official minimum in Ukraine) we can save one working place in the Catholic Media.
You can support the professional Catholic Media during the harsh wartime in Ukraine.
