Ukraine Friends delivers critical help in Ukraine by providing aid to military personnel and citizens as needs evolve.
Ukraine Friends was founded to first focus on
saving lives and alleviating suffering. Quickly, it has
established itself as a signficant private initiative
in Ukraine with diverse objectives and effective
programs to meet present and future challenges
ahead. From evacuation to reconstruction, Ukraine
Friends is prepared for the long road ahead.
Volunteer Ambulance Corps
The medical infrastructure in Ukraine has been significantly damaged due to the continuous and targeted attacks on healthcare and access to critically needed aid has been severely impacted. Ambulances have and continue to be a focus of this aggression. The Volunteer Ambulance Corps program provides first-hand support to the medical professionals and field staff that are in dire need of assistance.
IFAKs, individual first aid kits, are one of the most needed items and are essential to saving lives. The kits contain up to 18 components and can save over 90% of the field casualties that occur on the front lines. Specifically, it provides interventions for two of the leading causes of death on the battlefield — severe hemorrhage and inadequate air supply.
“Many innocent citizens including children have been killed. Far too many people have been wounded. And thousands of people have been profoundly traumatized by the extraordinary violence around them. We must protect and help the people of Ukraine. Now. They need substantial aid to both cope with the war and the eventual reconstruction.”
Ukraine’s youngest generation is suffering the most. Ripped away from their homes, their neighbors and loved ones, this war is creating a generation of children who need all of the love and support we can give. Responding to needs as they evolve, Ukraine Friends has created the following programs with children in mind:
Playgrounds for Peace
This program, which provides playgrounds for children in refugee centers, is about more than just the playground — it’s about community building and bringing joy to the youngest victims of this war.
Hygeine & Travel Kits
Often lacking even the most basic supplies, we pack hygiene and travel kits for children and their families. These kits can include dental kits, juice, candy, stickers, notepads, crayons and play-doh.
Toy Distribution & Drives
Whenever we have feet on the ground, whether its our Founders, staff or our generous donors, we always make sure to have toys on hand to deliver. Whether its a soccer ball, doll or puzzle, toys allow these children to be children.
