Despite the severe challenges - constant rocket attacks, occupation, power outages - the foundation's team and volunteers continue to work.
We thank our partners and everyone who has contributed and will continue to contribute to this collection!
We can't do it without your help!
Autumn and winter have been difficult - our volunteers went to Kharkiv and Kherson as soon as they were allowed to, because it is very dangerous there and there is constant shelling. But people who love their land and their place do not want to leave, and sometimes they cannot, so we are in a hurry to help them in various ways - including food, water, diapers, hygiene products (shampoos, gels, creams), household chemicals and medicines.
Our fearless volunteers make these dangerous trips once a week.
We hire carriers, send the aid through volunteers we know or to the nearest available post office to deliver the most necessary goods.
That is why we currently need our own car, which would allow us to make more deliveries or distribute the supplies. Carriers or volunteers need money for fuel or even repairs, and we need to unite and help them as well.
We sincerely hope for the support of our friends and partners!
Despite the brutal war, our organization continues to help lonely elderly people. Many of them cannot move independently and need constant outside help. In total, our foundation cares for more than 15,000 elderly people, about 10,000 of whom live in geriatric boarding houses and territorial centers of social protection of the population with inpatient departments.
Now we are actively working in different regions of Ukraine, trying to help those who need help now. Every month, we deliver food, medicine, personal hygiene products, wheelchairs, household items and even furniture to the elderly. Our help can save more than one life, so you need to act quickly.
Therefore, we really needed our own transport, and funds were not collected as actively as the situation required, so our most loyal volunteer Maria sold her own car and bought a 1.2-ton Renault Traffic bus. Now we can deliver help to our wards at any time and day. A car for a volunteer is our everything! We spend most of the working day there, loading, transporting, unloading, overcoming all kinds of obstacles... However, after covering hundreds of kilometers, transporting tons of humanitarian aid each time, our car needs repair. Thanks to your donations, we have already made a small repair and clogged the fuel filter with oil, but now we need a major repair of the car.
We are incredibly grateful to each of you, to everyone who donates money to help lonely old women, because it is thanks to all of you that we can deliver the help they need everywhere, just when it is needed and make these people's lives a little better, give them a little joy and faith that they are not abandoned and indifferent. Therefore, every donation, big or small, is important to us, because the more they are, the faster we will be able to deliver aid!
We still have a lot of work to do, because the cold winter is approaching, life is getting more expensive, and the number of grandparents in need is constantly increasing.
