UKRAINE TODAY IS TORN BY A GREAT WAR

A terrible evil came from where it was not expected. From brotherly Russia. Putin, a dictator and a maniac, had suppressed and taken away civil rights away from the Russians, coveted the free Ukraine. Free, and therefore so much hated by him.

Today, the life and freedom of the young and independent Ukraine, its soldiers, mothers and children, is hanging in the balance. They are fighting for their survival.

THEY NEED OUR HELP RIGHT NOW

Help us pay to transport aid to Ukraine!

Dear friends! We thank you for helping Ukraine and its people, but now need to ask for your assistance to pay to transport humanitarian aid by air. Aid sent by airplanes will get to recipients in a matter of days. We have medical supplies, clothes, children's toys, diapers and lots of urgent care items ready to be shipped.


Our staff is not paid — we all donate our time and resources to this project. 100% of all donations to AtlantaForUkraine.com go to fund our project goals. We will publish a complete financial report on this site at the end of each month. AtlantaForUkraine.com is a Georgia registered non-profit corporation.

We want to thank the following donors, who helped fund our effort to ship goods to Ukraine: Joy and John Garrett, Peter J Carrato, Anna Zagoruiko, Viktoriia Radionov, Veronika Volkova, Iryna Dudko, Irina Semenenko, Bella Litnevskaya, Svitlana Klıne, Svetlana Constant, Mariana Khmil, Maksym Hnativ, Kateryna Pasaylyuk, Quan minh Nguyen, Yaroslav Molkov, Tina Maddox, Maryia Bondar, Asya Datsenko, Omar Franco, Marina Dashevskaya, Stella Dashevsky, Candice Quirk, Bette Gilbert, Katherine West, James R Hamilton, Maryana Hlyva, Kaylee Murtagh, Svetlana Constant, Kristina Murphy

FIRST BATCH OF HUMANITARIAN AID IS ON ITS WAY TO UKRAINE! NEW SHIPMENT IS GETTING READY FOR AIR TRANSPORT.

Our volunteer-operated sites collected approximately 15 tons of humanitarian aid. Most of it was already shipped out or is on its way to Ukraine. Take a look at how we loaded and sent our first shipment of aid to Ukraine via Savannah, GA.

Further aid shipments we be sent by air to save valuable time and to reach the needed faster. We are currently looking for airline partners to help us get much needed aid to Warsaw or Krakow, Poland. In the meantime, if you can pitch in to help pay for air transport, we'd be very grateful!
YOUR HELP WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE MOST NEEDY RECIPIENTS WE PERSONALLY PICKED
Wе hand picked some of the most needed organizations, had them personally inspected, and, most importantly, partnered with a respected local non-profit to distribute all of your humanitarian aid. Our own representative in Kyiv supervises the process of aid arrival and distribution, and documents it with photo and video reports.
