War: How you can help Ukraine

We have selected two of the most reputable charitable foundations and one civic initiative project that can be trusted. They help people who are now in Ukraine and refugees who are suffering from the fratricidal war unleashed by Putin. All of these organizations work efficiently and transparently.

The first is the Sunflower of Peace Foundation, led by Katya Malakhova, a Ukrainian-born suburban Boston resident. The fund she is in charge of has already raised more than $3,000,000 to help Ukrainians (data as of February 28).

Its current mission is to support the people of Ukraine affected by the Russian military invasion initiated by Putin and his henchmen. The Foundation cooperates with a global network of reputable organizations and institutions that seek to help Ukrainians who are in dire circumstances.

In just a few days since the beginning of the war, the foundation has managed to raise more than half a million dollars to provide medical and humanitarian assistance, which will be used by paramedics and doctors in areas affected by the military conflict in Ukraine. The funds will be used to purchase first aid supplies, medicines, medical equipment and other things necessary to save human lives.

The shipment of the next container is scheduled for March 5, 2022.
