"90 Years of Energy for the Good of Society”
by Ulana Zinych

The UNWLA is celebrating 90 years of its extensive, multidimensional, humanitarian and educational service which can be described as "90 Years of Energy for the Good of Society".  Since the home of UNWLA is in the United States, much of the organization's work is centered within the US. A shining example of this work, among many other accomplishments, is the creation of the Ukrainian Museum in New York City.
