At a peaceful time, Vanongo IT/logistics startup entered the market with a mission: “Move everything. With one touch.” But on February 24, 2022, everything changed.
- Routine “peaceful” transportation became not topical, so with the beginning of the war the entire team of Vanongo changed their methods of work to help deliver humanitarian aid.
- At the moment the company has already successfully transported more than 17 000 tons of cargo, mainly humanitarian. The delivery of the most necessary things is carried out not only in Ukraine: the Vanongo team keeps finding cars for transportation from abroad.
- Maryna Chepurna, Team Lead of People and Culture department: We have one goal: To deliver the cargo in Ukraine from point A to point B, which will save lives of Ukrainians. Each of our colleagues does extraordinary things, sometimes even under the terrible sounds of explosions and air raid sirens.”
- At present the company is cooperating with the office of the President of Ukraine, Kyiv City Administration and Vitaliy Klitchko, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Territorial Defense Forces, the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. The company’s developers help to make a volunteer platform related to delivery.”
- Over the last month, the Vanongo team was able to buy and deliver products in hot spots for the Ukrainian Army and territorial defense, found contacts of brave drivers to evacuate people from the hot spots, bought and delivered food for animals to people who have taken care of the abandoned cats and dogs, has taken hot food for women and children, and it was looking for and successfully delivered medicines for elderly people.
- In order to help Ukrainians further, as fuel money ends, Vanongo collects donates.
We support our country and want its economy to recover as soon as possible. All the founders of Vanongo are Ukrainians. We want Ukraine to be a strong country, it will always be a priority. And now we are doing everything to speed up our victory,” – co-founder Viacheslav Levchenko.
