Amazon launches humanitarian aid hub in Slovakia to help Ukrainian refugees.
- With the hub up and running, a network of Amazon fulfilment centres across Europe is now preparing and delivering more than four million critical supplies donated by both Amazon and its customers—including shelter materials, hygiene items, blankets, and clothing.
- Working backwards from refugee needs, Amazon teams assess what supplies must be donated directly and source them, procure any missing items, and then consolidate, pack, and ship the supplies needed by charities to do their lifesaving work.
- Customers in Europe can donate to support these efforts through dedicated Wish Lists on Amazon’s European stores.
Come Back Alive is one of the largest charitable foundations that supports Ukrainian soldiers, founded by the IT specialist Vitaliy Deynega. The organization collected more than 210 million UAH (more than $7M) in 2014. According to Na chasi, the Patreon page Come Back Alive is in the top ten projects by the number of financial donations.
There are several other organizations to support:
- Army SOS, which develops drones;
- Everybody Can, an organization that supports internally displaced people;
- Help on the Ministry of Defense website.
