From the beginning of the war, we provided hundreds of tactical medical aid kits, dozens of tactical gear items, and several useful gadgets, together worth tens of thousands of dollars, to help Ukrainian defenders at the front lines resist the invasion.
Advanced medical kits are purchased in the USA, and delivered through Poland to defenders in Ukraine, with the help of multi-country logistics team and local volunteers. Each kit includes a medical tourniquet, hemostatic dressing, chest seal, compression bandage, and other basic medical supplies, in an individual tactical pouch. Or even better - we provide bulletproof vests so that the first aid kits don't have to be used!
Based on the requests we receive directly from the groups of defenders in Ukraine, we purchase protective gear and affordable gadgets in the USA, Canada, or Europe and work with local volunteers in Ukraine to deliver them to the front lines. Examples include safety goggles, knee pads, water filters, optical binoculars and night vision devices.
Basic life supplies that are still available in Ukraine are purchased there, and delivered to vulnerable civilians and abandoned animals by dedicated local volunteers. We focus on helping people that live near the front lines and those in the small villages and towns destroyed by the invaders.
Accommodations for people displaced by the war and for refugees abroad are found by our network in western Ukraine, Poland, and in other European countries. We help connect locals that may have an apartment available while on travel, with displaced Ukrainians that need temporary housing.

If you are in the war zone and need help getting a medical kit, or you are a part of a local community close to the front lines, you can send us an email or a message on Facebook or Instagram. We are a small grassroots organization with limited resources, and we would do our best to help you, or direct your request to other bigger organizations that can help.
