MARGATE, FL (March 22, 2022) — We Florida Financial, a cooperatively owned, not-for-profit credit union, has donated $25,000 to the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund, a fundraising effort launched by the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU) that has unified credit unions across the globe to support Ukrainian credit union system throughout the recent Eastern Europe conflict.   

“It is our honor to support the efforts of our fellow financial institutions in providing much need relief to the Ukrainian credit union system,” said Robert D. Ramirez, President & CEO of We Florida Financial. “We hope our contribution can assist in providing aid to the people that have lost their homes, jobs and financial security both now and in the future as they navigate these incredibly horrific times. We also ask that our local colleagues join us with their support as well.” 

Upon announcement of the Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund, We Florida Financial was moved to contribute due to the impact on their fellow industry colleagues in Ukraine, but also on their very own associates. 

Tatiana Wright, Compliance Specialist at We Florida Financial personally shares, “it means a lot to me to be part of a team that is making an effort to help people and organizations across the ocean and hours away, and to show that they are not forgotten, not left alone to fight for survival.” Born in the region and worried for her grandmother still living in Ukraine she continues, “People just want a safe place to sleep, warm food on the table and a hug from their loved ones. These are such simple things that are taken for granted but mean so much during these uncertain times and I feel humbled, that the organization I work for has committed to helping.”
