Ukrainian Association Finland


At our stall you will find small fundraising support products such as bags, pins or stickers. In addition to fundraising support products, we would have for sale: books, individually packaged foodstuffs; crafts; toys; textiles or clothing.

The Association of Ukrainians in Finland (UYS) was founded in 1997 in Helsinki, and its goals are to unite and represent Ukrainians living in Finland and to preserve the achievements of Ukrainian culture. The association has been delivering humanitarian aid to Ukraine since 2014, after Russia occupied the Crimean peninsula and part of eastern Ukraine. From 2022, after Russia started a full-scale war of aggression in Ukraine, the share of humanitarian aid became the association’s largest form of activity.

The proceeds from the sale during Maailma kylässä festival will be used for humanitarian aid for those suffering from the war in Ukraine. We sell, for example, ecologically produced clothes from organic cotton, handicrafts made by Ukrainians and other Ukrainian support products.
