Description of needs
  • What do we need to help Ukrainians now? 




    More than 800 children have been wounded since the beginning of the Russian invasion. Seriously ill and injured children must receive treatment in time, if they remain in Ukraine or are evacuated abroad. Zaporuka Foundation provides children with medicines and medical supplies, psychological support, physical rehabilitation, financial support and housing.



    During the war, 616 hospitals across Ukraine were damaged, 101 of them were completely destroyed. Those that remain are overcrowded and require more equipment and medicines. The heads of the hospitals ask the Foundation for help almost every day. There are requests for medicines and equipment worth from 10,000 to 500,000 euros. If you are interested in providing such assistance, we will prepare specific projects.



    Millions of people in Ukraine who have left their homes with all their possessions just in a small suitcase or even a pocket need food and hygiene products. Shelters hosting them need additional furniture, mattresses and other stuff. We help IDPs in Kyiv, Poltava, Cherkasy, Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Lviv Oblasts, which are the biggest hubs for IDPs. If you can collect humanitarian aid or donate for purchasing of necessary products, we will prepare a specific request for you.



    When the Russian invaders continue bombing the Ukrainian infrastructure, IDP families’ survival depends on timely preparation for the coming winter. IDP families living in rural areas don’t have central heating and need firewood to keep their houses warm. IDP families living in apartment buildings need heaters to be able to raise the temperature in their rooms, especially if they have little children. In addition, IDPs need warm clothes, blankets. If you can help Ukrainins survive in winter cold, we will prepare a specific request for you.


    The needs of the country that is bombed daily and where the infrastructure and the lives of people are being destroyed are boundless. We are sure that you will help us in our fight for life and freedom.


    We are ready to answer all additional questions.
