We Provide Humanitarian Aid and Critical Life Saving Supplies

A grassroots initiative that provides immediate
life saving medical supplies, protective gear
and humanitarian relief not provided by government agencies.

Our aid to the people of Ukraine is direct.
No overhead. Proven delivery.

Assist Ukraine is currently a project of the co-founders.  Assist Ukraine is in the process of incorporating as a nonprofit corporation and obtaining its 501(c)(3) determination letter.

“Assist Ukraine focuses on helping the people who are still in Ukraine who are fighting for their lives and their future, explains Anne Garrels, a long-time NPR correspondent and co​-founder of Assist-Ukraine. “We are poised to respond to their immediate humanitarian needs. We have delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars of high-end medical supplies and protective gear, food to cities under attack, and have helped to start a children’s home for displaced orphans in a safe area in Western Ukraine.”

The Ukrainian army is fighting valiantly to defend their country. While it is amazing that 300,000 civilians have joined the Territorial Defense Forces, Ukraine does not have the capacity to outfit these volunteers with the necessary protective equipment and medical supplies. These defenders need effective body armor, helmets and individual first aid kits (IFAKs). As the war enters a new and even more brutal phase, the need for immediate delivery of these items is greater than ever.  You can help them by donating today!

100% of your donation goes to obtaining supplies ​and critical resources that are saving lives.

To ensure every cent of every donation is used to purchase needed supplies, the Assist Ukraine founders are personally covering all transportation, resourcing, logistics, and communication costs.
Time is of the essence!
