A Letter from UKRAINIAN ACTION
MISSION & HISTORY.
28 October 2022
I lived in Ukraine for several years and my friends there have been forced into an unimaginable situation. Every week we buy pick-up trucks, fill them with humanitarian supplies, and drive them to the Ukrainian border.
The trucks and supplies are donated to the brave and vulnerable people of Ukraine through a trusted network of friends and colleagues that I personally know from my time as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine.
Since March 2022, we raised over $1.3m (our initial target was $10k for 1 truck), bought over 93 trucks which we drove, alongside our volunteers, laden with critical humanitarian and medical supplies from London to my friends in Kyiv, central and western Ukraine.
We were also able to send supplies to the family that housed me 20 years ago when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in a village in central Ukraine. They welcomed me into their home like family and put up with my broken Ukrainian for 3 months, and I am so grateful that we were able to provide them with critical supplies.
We will continue to buy trucks and will drive them to Ukraine with more medical and humanitarian supplies.
We have also partnered with Water Mission to deliver and install water purification systems across the country. The Living Water Treatment System is essentially a miniature water treatment plant that can purify more than 10,000 gallons of water per day - enough drinking water for 5,000 people.
We appreciate you may have already donated to other worthwhile causes, but if you are interested to support this direct, tangible effort to support the vulnerable civilians of Ukraine it is hugely appreciated.
All funds raised will continue to help the victims of this war, whether by funding more trucks and supplies or for initiatives that contribute to supporting vulnerable people in need.
Thank you for supporting Ukraine.
