    HI everyone,
    I'm passing this question on from a non-member:

    "Assuming Ukraine wins and is secure and has begun rebuilding, I am planning a trip there to do some volunteer work.

    Are you or the PTG aware of any piano technician organizations in Ukraine I might contact well in advance?

    Failing that, even concert orgs, or piano dealers, or piano teacher associations or even individual tuners would be very helpful.

    I've googled all this already but your (collective) info will be much better!

    Hi Scott,

    I have a client from Ukraine who might be able to help. Is your friend looking for someone to work with or to bring supplies to or something else? I will be happy to reach out to my client and either pass any info your way or put them in touch with your friend. Whichever is best.

    I'd say the best place to ask that question is on the Facebook groups, Global Piano Technicians or Piano Technicians International.
