We are a group of individuals based in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and London, UK.
On the 24th of February, we woke up to the news, that the country we’re born in, Ukraine, was invaded by Russia. Our parents and friends in Ukraine woke up to the sounds of bombshells.
Our lives have changed since that moment.
Innocent people, including children, are being killed and wounded daily, so surely we couldn’t stand aside.
A small group of us, whose family members and friends are still in Ukraine fighting for their lives started this initiative to collect/send humanitarian aid to people who desperately need our support.
What makes us different from the larger charities?
We are able to rapidly get the right aid to the people who need it most in Ukraine.
How are we able to do this?
Our team of volunteers in the UK and Ukraine have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most.
We have delivered over 82 lorries with humanitarian aid to Ukraine and around Ukraine since the start of the war.
We can deliver our humanitarian aid to most of the cities in Ukraine including the frontline cities, such as Mykolayiv, Kharkiv, Kramatorsk and more.
How can we do it?
From the beginning of the war we’ve been working in partnership with some amazing Ukrainian logistics companies as well as with some trustworthy and reliable volunteers on the ground.
With ongoing violence, a huge number of people urgently need help right now.
Your donations for Ukraine can make a massive difference.
Please give what you can to those who need it most!
Thank you so much to all the givers, supporters and sharers.
Keep up the good work!
The principal leads are below (but there are many more people behind these faces – we could NOT do this alone without the support of our fantastic friends and networks).
