Aid for Ukraine Campaign Update

March 10, 2022


The team continues making sizeable daily deliveries of aid into Ukraine, while also focusing on some-longer term strategic planning. Pivotal to this is ERU receptionist, Tanya (pictured above, alongside Dale and Willem), who is now running point on the aid team’s coordination with a larger NGO.


While we continue to focus on these consistent daily shipments, the larger NGOs have begun to show up on the ground, and we are taking on a role as guides to the aid delivery process. As the team has gained substantial expertise over the last week, we are looking for opportunities to apply this knowledge to help those who are now arriving more efficiently and effectively get their products across the border. This will form a big part of the work to come, and we’re excited to share more details on this soon!


Here are some recent news features of the work being done:

Correction from the last update: the individual who has been helping keep soldiers fed from a basement in Kyiv is in fact not a woman, but Starkhov, pictured above.


Thank you for your continued support!
