We provide micro grants, materials, and technical assistance directly to partners. Why? Because we know them based on over 20+ years’ experience in Ukraine. It’s the absolute fastest way to help with the greatest impact and transparency. Many of these goods are available commercially, but the shrinking of the country’s GDP core needs, such as shelter, food, medicine and hygienic products is making certain items, scarce. So we have partnered with suppliers and shipping companies to bring items to those in need and are bringing them in country to our partners on the ground.
We have partnered with the 188 Foundation for most risky rescues, which has focused on reaching the most vulnerable. However, our fleet of vans and drivers have been able to support transport of individuals in safer zones.
