They fund 100% volunteer teams in Ukraine who make urgent deliveries, including medicine, first aid, baby formula, food, and hygienic products. Teams evacuate children and seniors from the front lines — often under fire — and provide basic needs to the volunteer defense forces: fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters protecting their homeland and loved ones from Russian troops.
To date, their teams have evacuated over 22,000 women, children, and seniors from devastated cities, including Kyiv, Mariupol, Dnipro, and Kharkiv. They are a 100% volunteer-run organization with no overhead costs. Every donation they collect goes directly and immediately to support life-saving missions in Ukraine.

A SVIC member Julia Korolko’s best friend from Ukraine organized a small volunteer group called “Brothers and Sisters of St.Javelin” with her IT coworkers; they buy food for restaurants that feed Ukrainian military and civilian people in Kiev. A message from their team (see attached for photos of their event and paypal and banking info):
Translation of the latest post (from 10th of April) from one of the volunteers and our coordinator (Iryna Kovalenko), who visited some de-occupied villages near Kyiv with humanitarian help:
“It is impossible to convey feelings in words. It hurts, and terrifies, and at the same time relief when you do a good deed… I am grateful for the help of Kateryna Hryshyna, Olena Shevchuk, Vasyl Kolb and others.
Thank you Nastya Kyselova, thank you Artem Lomako for fundraising and food.
Thank you Dmitry Tsokolov for baking delicious bread so quickly.
We will help as much as we can, we all do the same thing!
Glory to Ukraine!!!”
