Our Mission

Who We Are?

We are a group of thousands volunteers across the world, led by a Board of Advisors (to be formalized), founded by Artur Kiulian and operated by a group of hundreds of team leaders.

What We Do?

In Short: We are helping people deal with the consequences of war.

But what does it really mean?

There are so many dimensions of the negative consequences of war. And we know we can't help all these problems, there are many other organizations and volunteers that are and will be much more efficient at those as time progresses. That's why we are building an infrastructure to empower individuals and organizations to help solve these problems.

What does infrastructure really mean?

It means we become a provider of services to other organizations. We intend and already support with some of those:

  • Technology (#team-it)
  • Financial (#team-financials)
  • Funding (#team-funding)
  • Legal (#team-legal)
  • Security (#team-security)
  • Intelligence (#team-intelligence)
  • Human Resources (#team-HR)
  • Marketing & Communications (#team-marketing)
  • Logistics (#team-logistics)
  • Analytics (#team-analytics)
Why is it needed?

Because not every 15 person non-profit is able to afford to hire $300,000/year engineer specialized in cyber security and even should not. It's not an effective use of funds but the need is there. That's why we aim to solve that problem for many organizations and groups of volunteers.

We are here to stay, no matter how long war takes we will be here. We will help deal with war, we will help deal with the side-effects of war. And most importantly, we will rebuild Ukraine and make it better than it was. A stronger, independent, proud country with a bunch of friends, the friends that will know they helped as they could. They will travel to Ukraine when things are okay, meet those people we saved and know they were a part of it, forever ingrained in the history of good. Because it's the right thing to do, and the thing that we want to, to be a part of a beautiful, humane, cooperative willingness to help.

What We Don't Do?

We don't buy weapons or military aid because we can't due to our 501c3 non-profit status in USA. We do support Ukrainian government and different Ministries with what we can but we can't send or pay for shipment of needs to Ukrainian Army.
