Get to know FinUA

Background was founded the first day of the war in Ukraine in 2022 as volunteer online project. We are Ukrainians and Finns living in Finland. We registered 10.07.2023 as FinUA-yhdistys ry, a non-profit association to address informational needs of Ukrainians in Finland.


Mission of FinUA is to provide checked and up-to-date information and volunteer support for Ukrainians coming to Finland as the result of Russian invasion: we want to dispatch people to correct organizations and workers to support their arrival and integration on Finland.
