JANUARY  2015 (see photos and description below):

Collected funds were used to purchase as follows:


wheelchairs (one donated by Ukrainian community in Strasbourg, France)

chargers for mobile telephones

direct financial assistance to Andriy Usach (see story below)

Our assistance is an ongoing project… as long as the war continues in Ukraine, our soldiers and volunteers need as much help as they can. Thank you!

Crutches delivered to LVIV MILITARY HOSPITAL and handed over directly to wounded soldiers


Battery chargers… people give the soldiers old mobiles, but chargers have been lost. Communication with relatives, friends and brothers-in-arms on the front lines is essential for spirit and morale.                                 First wheelchair arrives…..


Another wheelchair arrives at Lviv Military Hospital from Strasbourg, France (via Kyiv). Vasyl delivers the wheelchair    (and some goodies…) to a patient in the hospital


LVIV Military Hospital….The boys say thank you!



Direct financial assistance for Andriy who was severely wounded in Luhansk Airport in July 2014 and is still under treatment….


Here is his story (see URL link below)

Thank you!

Slava Ukraini! Heroyam Slava!


Слава Україні! Героям Слава!
