The struggle against the Russian invader has to be fought, and will be decided, on Ukrainian soil by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. From the first weeks we realized we had to try to support them. We put together money from ourselves, our family, friends and from friends of friends and started to acquire protective materials needed badly in Ukraine.
We did so in close cooperation with Ukrainian counterparts. Most materials are acquired in Europe or the United States and transported in small vans to the front, mostly in coordination with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. Next to that we cooperate with a group of drone-builders located in Ukraine.
We bring medical trauma-packs (including tourniquets and Israeli bandage), bulletproof vests, elbow and knee pads, kevlar helmets, reconnaissance drones, thermal vision cameras, tents, items of medical supply, clothes, and tools to restore infrastructure: water pumps, grinders, drills, chain saws.
A few times we brought supply to Ukraine ourselves and met intense gratitude. Besides the great need of protective tools it's also the feeling that the Ukrainians are not left alone against 'the second army of the world' that boosts their spirit. We can't do that enough. It's crucial.
