Where the money will go:
We will send the money we donate to three different places, to try and spread our contribution and have an impact in a variety of ways. One large organization and two individuals helping their local communities, two specifically Jewish and one not.
Here's a little info about each of these heroes and if available, a link to find out more.
Olga is a friend of ours who's team brings food, household, personal and medical supplies things to people in the kharkiv region who can’t get what they need for themselves. They serve especially older people in the rural areas around Kharkiv - including areas that previously were under occupation and vulnerable folks who cannot line up fo rhours to get medicine and food, including elderly and disabled people, single mothers with newborns etc. They also provide Kharkiv City Clinical Hospital of Ambulance and Emergency Medicine and Kharkiv Regional Hospital with the necessary aid. Despite regular shellings Despite the shellings, our fearless drivers and cyclists take numerous daily trips to all corners of the city and to the villages of its region. She is doing a huge mitzve with this work, providing much needed aid to these people who are really in a dire situation. Many of these villages were occupied by Russian soldiers, which means the houses were trashed, both left incredibly dirty and with many appliances, clothing, tools etc vandalized or destroyed. For people already living a poor village life (not to look down on these proud and courageous people) and currently trying to rebuild but generally with electricity for only a few hours a day, this assitance is extremely important. Yyou can also donate directly to Olga's organization on paypal at: [email protected]
Head of the Jewish community of Chernivtsi/Chernovits. The Jewish community of the city of Chernivtsi includes more than 200 Jews, most of them are very old pensioners. Many of them are lonely, sick people, and there are those who cannot move. The standard pension of these people is about 60-70 US dollars, so it is not possible to live decently on such an amount of money and the prices in Ukraine for many products are the same as in Germany. Our organization, to the best of its ability, helps the most needy Jews of the city, and today we have more than 100 such people. We try to look for sponsors abroad who periodically donate funds to support Ukrainian Jewry but this financial assistance is clearly not enough, to reach out to all the low-income Jewish people with support. Also, many Jewish refugees from the eastern regions - the war zone - came to our city and they also really need help. The leadership of our community organized hot meals for the poorest people and distributed food packages. We also regularly distribute food packages to families of Jewish refugees, as well as refugees of any nationality who come to our Israel Synagogue with a request for urgent help. We will be very grateful for any help. Your support during this difficult то time will be very important to us!

Irina and her husband began by self funding this effort from day one of the war, before beginning to fundraise on March 20. As new requests from the ground come in daily, their efforts to support the people of Ukraine continue to ramp up.
