International Association for Support of Ukraine

About us

We, Ukrainians from all over the World, having met on Facebook, started working remotely as a single team at the end of February 2014. We gathered for the first time in July to register our charity organization.

Why we united into a charity organization

Since the beginning of the Revolution of Dignity protests in Ukraine in December 2013 to the bloody events of February 2014 about 3 000 people were injured, hundreds of which were severely wounded. However, that was not the end of the Ukraine’s tough times for the country had to defend its territorial integrity in its eastern regions. The numbers of injured and severely wounded keep growing each day an so are growing the numbers of those who need special medical care, prosthetics and rehabilitation. Ukrainian health-care system is not yet ready to cope with treating complex wounds and their growing numbers due to the shortage of medical equipment, supplies and drugs, Ukraine’s limited access to certain modern technologies and shortage in funds of medical institutions.

Prior to the tragic events, none of us was even thinking of engaging in charity. But we had no other choice but to unite for helping our wounded heroes get medical treatment in Ukraine and abroad as well as for supporting social changes in Ukraine.
