Help Defend Freedom of Ukraine
by supplying critical non-lethal optical, protective, and medical equipment to the forces with urgent needs so that Ukraine's victory over Russian invaders will be a bit closer
Dear Friends of Ukraine,
We have been helping our homeland since the start of the Russian war against Ukraine. Together with my colleagues and other like-minded Ukrainians, we established the Children of Heroes Fund, which provides long-term support to kids who have lost their parents after February 24, 2022. With my colleagues from the investment industry, we launched the #TheResponsible50 project aimed at analyzing what side of “responsibility” the top-50 multinationals take concerning their businesses in Russia.
You probably know how brave Ukrainian freedom fighters are. Some perhaps heard that President Zelenskyy continues to urge the world’s leaders to actively supply Ukraine with weapons. However, as our country wasn't fully prepared for the attack, there are units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces who are still underequipped. That is why we decided to launch DEFENDFREEDOMUA, a non-profit boutique project aimed at helping Ukraine to defend not only its own but also Europe’s future and freedom by supplying professional critical optical, protective, and medical equipment to make the UAF more advanced and effective. A proven network of our partners, close friends, and even relatives currently serving in the army allows us to fulfill actual needs and deliver sets directly to the frontlines.
We cover the full spectrum, from raising funds and procurement to logistics and reporting, while our trusted partners provide NGO, administrative, and infrastructure support. DEFENDFREEDOMUA operates on a 100% non-profit and volunteering basis. We invite you to join us and contribute to the fundraisers so that the freedom of Ukraine will be a little closer.
