Nova Kakhovka, Ukraine

Plum Island residents Nadiia and Jarred Sadowski recently started Nova Kakhovka’ for Life which has been raising money and sending it directly to volunteers in Nova Kakhovka’, a Ukrainian city hard hit by the invasion.

“I am impressed by how much people are trying to support Ukraine,” Nadiia Sadowski said. “Every little bit helps. Every dollar, every cent. No one over there expected to go through this because no one expects it. No one is ready for this, too.”

Nadiia Sadowski was born and grew up in Nova Kakhovka, Ukraine.  She met an American, fell in love and got married to Jarred Sadowski.  She moved with him to live in the US, settling in Newburyport, in 2018.  Nadiia’s ties to Ukraine remain strong as her parents, sister and her sister’s family as well as her friends and their families all still live there.

Watching the Russian invasion and subsequent devastation that began on February 24th, 2022 is nothing less than heartbreaking.  Both Nadiia and her husband Jarred immediately started working to quickly get money to her home town of 40,000 people.  They have assembled a group of in-country trusted volunteers where the funds are  directly utilized to buy and distribute food & essentials to people in need.
