what people say about us

John L. N. Bitove, C.M.

There has never been an organization like UMD in the global Macedonian community. UMD’s founders have broken down the old barriers by speaking about one cause, with one voice – Macedonia.

Michael and Marian Ilitch

All of our successes have been the result of many others helping us along the way. Our giving back to the community is our way of saying Thanks… Mike and I are both very proud of our Macedonian heritage and have prided ourselves on passing along many of the wonderful traditions to our children and grandchildren throughout the years… We appreciate the good work that the United Macedonian Diaspora is doing to preserve and promote the Macedonian heritage and identity worldwide.
