Ukraine: DIRECT AID.

Ukraine: DIRECT AID.

From Elona Karafin

I am traveling to Poland to deliver aid to the border with Ukraine. Items are handed off directly to people that I know. This allows me to have transparency and visibility in the distribution of donations.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the overwhelming response to this fundraiser - I've already increased the goal multiple times, due to so many incoming donations! (incredible)

I am flying to Poland in a few days to volunteer at the Ukrainian border. I will be handing off items directly to my friends that sent me a comprehensive list of their needs (including doctors and those in the army). On the way back, the plan is to pick up and bring refugees to various cities in Poland.

Our prioritized purchases are medicine/tactical aid kits, baby products & safety equipment. I received special permission to transport certain items out of the US and the rest I will purchase in Warsaw. Also, $3,000 has already been transferred for humanitarian aid in Kamenets-Podilsky.

I am keeping the fundraiser open because every extra dollar will be put to good use. Any shares or additional donations would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and please stay tuned for more updates!

My best regards,
Elona

More Info

My name is Elona, I am a Ukrainian-American travel blogger. I am bringing critical aid to the Ukrainian border through Poland. I am also working with friends and family to get critical items directly to the people who need them. 

We need tactical body armor, medicine, children's medicine, and animal food. These are top priorities however things change every day and I will continue updating this page. 

There is a lot of aid pouring into the country through various organizations however, many items are stalled because there are barriers to entry to the cities that are under constant attack. 

I am documenting this process on my social channels (instagram.com/elona) - there you will see every item that was bought and delivered.  

Thank you so much to everyone for the tremendous amount of support in these testing times.
