Our founder, and SW Portland resident, Maya, is a proud Ukrainian-American. Watching the nation of her grandparents, family and friends be decimated by Russia's calculated war of choice is simply crushing. Many of us are asking what we can do:
1) We can donate money to these personally-vetted diligent organizations hustling to get medical and living supplies to Poland, and then via truck into Ukraine. This is a very informative article from Airlink's CEO on why monetary donations, and not stuff, are so important in these times.
2) We can stay informed and lobby our government for further action.
#StandwithUkraine. Thank you profusely. Дякую! Слава Україні! Героям слава!
NYC-based, focused on purchasing medical supplies for critical situations like blood loss and other tactical medicine items. They have a large procurement team of volunteers that tracks down and purchases supplies and a logistics team that then gets them to Ukraine. They have been doing amazing work getting specific medical supplies in, for ex, tourniquets and chest seals.
