President & Founder — Halyna Kavka - Shudan
As Founder and President of International Charitable Foundation "Glory to Ukraine", Halyna Kavka - Shudan is one of the a larger Ukrainian community in Cleveland. Her efforts to date have helped orphan, single parent families, ukraine war heroes.
Halyna Kavka - Shudan was born in Lviv Lviv Oblast in the early 1941s. She was a orphan child. Halyna’s Life as Hope. She has loving Aunt Julia, brother and sister. They were a rather poor family.
After graduating Medical Special School in Lviv, Galyna was able to combine her education in medical techniques and Children's Charities. She got married, had a family... Two kids Yaroslav and Volodymyr. The husband of Galyna, died, so she was left alone with her two sons. In 1989 she left Ukraine to settle in the Americas.
She find ways to engage with the Ukrainian community of Cleveland, including take part in Greek Catholic Church.
Halyna’s credo: God’s glory is the source. The wellspring from which all smaller glories run.
So we arrived at this idea of creating a foundation in her name.
WHAT WE DO
The progress of publishing activity in Ukraine is an important indicator of cultural life and the enjoyment of the advances of science and culture by citizens. The need for historical substantiation of nation-building is an axiom and needs no proof. Collective memory matters politically: it provides a nation with an identity and common myth of origin, legitimizing power by creating a desired image of the past. That matrix provided the groundwork for Ukrainian history as the basis for building “a single Ukrainian nation.”
Literature is the mirror of society. Ukrainian literature is being made today by Halyna Kavka with her historical trilogy "The Face of Ukrainian History", for example. Literature is not something to put your mind into, literature is something only a heart can understand. Literature broadens the horizon. Literature - one of the greatest creatures of culture. Literature helps us discover the world of spirituality
We do whatever it takes — every day and in times of crisis — to give and helping orphaned children, single parent families, ukraine war heroes a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm, transforming lives and futures.
