WHAT IS HAPPENING IN UKRAINE?

On Thursday, February 24th, Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine. For months, Russian forces have been launching missile strikes on Ukrainian cities, shelling military and civilian infrastructure in Ukraine, and advancing across the country. Putin’s goal is to overthrow the democratically elected Ukrainian government. Major Ukrainian cities, including Mariupol, Kharkiv, and the capital, Kyiv, are under constant attack and bombardment. Russian forces have indiscriminately targeted kindergartens, hospitals, orphanages, and aid corridors, forcing millions of people to flee or seek safety in bomb shelters.

WHAT WILL THE FUNDS BE USED FOR?

Since the start of the war, the Operation Sunflower team has created a network of drivers and volunteers on the ground that is able to deliver aid from neighboring countries to the people in Ukraine who need it most.

  • stable shelf food;
  • sterile medical equipment;
  • essential medicines;
  • baby formula;
  • diapers and creams;
  • feminine care items;
  • and other live-saving goods that are out of stock in regions under invasion and bombardment.

  • drivers;
  • insurance;
  • gas;
  • landing fees;
  • boxes;
  • and payments for those risking their lives to get aid into Ukraine.
