The following projects provide critical support in Poland, Ukraine, and Romania. These projects will change as needs evolve.
1 MONTH OF EDUCATION $100
We’re partnering with Ukrainian school for refugee children. School provides structure, routine, and a sense of purpose for the children. The monthly enrollment is $100 per child and includes breakfast and lunch.
5 THERAPY SESSIONS $150
Refugee children have endured the unimaginable and many require therapy to help recover from the trauma. We are partnering with a collective of psychiatrists and psychologists to provide mental health support.
ORPHANAGE AID $250
In early March, an orphanage previously located in Chmielnicki evacuated its 113 children, 10 caregivers and the caregivers’ 8 children to Warsaw. The orphanage staff are in desperate need of additional caregivers, tutors, and medical and dental care for the children. $2,500 per month will help underwrite these needs and we are seeking $250 minimum donations toward this amount.
MEDICAL KITS $125
Prescription medicines, first aid supplies, vitamins, and physician visits, refugees require ongoing access to basic medical support. Our “kits” will provide underwrite basic medical supplies and services. $125 can underwrite medical needs of a family of four (4) for one month.
Pasha Servetnyk was a winner of The Master Chef competition. Since the Russian bombing and occupation of his city Kherson, he bakes bread to feed the people of his city for free. Under threat of death, Pasha continues to help others the best way he can. This project will help ramp up production and distribution to get more bread to more people.
EMERGENCY RELIEF IN THE UKRAINE $100
Ukraine remains under siege and the needs of the people who remain in shelter in country changes daily. Emergency food aid, shelters, military equipment, and medical supplies are at the top of the list and various NGOs are working to meet the demands as quickly as possible. We have a direct line with the NGOs on the frontlines and plan to support them as critical issues arise.
SAFETY VESTS $300
We’re collaborating with a Ukrainian-based network that is providing protective gear for first responders who are helping to evacuate people from cities under siege. $300 will underwrite one Kevlar-type battle vests with 2 metal plates for members of the rescue teams.
The distribution of supplies and food into Ukraine continues to be a priority. Ukrainian volunteer Timur and his team have been delivering 1,100 bags of food each day into strike zones, but shelling has destroyed vehicles in their fleet. We are working to acquire a new van so that they can keep delivering vital aid to thousands of families.
