The devastation, the human tall and suffering of this criminal war are truly staggering.
“Early UN estimates indicate that nearly three in 10 people in Ukraine need life-saving humanitarian assistance. ” Large sections of residential areas in major cities are destroyed. Astounding five million people had to flee the country as refugees while additional seven million are internally displaced. They need urgent help with basic needs.
There is a huge world wide outpouring of support for the people of Ukraine. We hear of staggering sums of money committed by the various states to the support of Ukraine. There are international NGOs and massive non profits receiving avalanches of donations world wide.
The reality is that very little of these vast sums are currently reaching actual people in need on the ground. Vast amounts of what is being actually delivered is done by the heroic local volunteers. They are underfunded, understaffed, exhausted and overwhelmed by the need they serve. Sadly, this need is only growing. This page of the site is dedicated to bringing attention to the credible and locally verified grass roots organizations and the ones that deliver to the ground.
We are working on updating this page primarily with local humanitarian organizations providing critical support on the ground with the goal to encourage their direct support.
If you are planning a fundraiser, if you or your organization is thinking of ways to give in the most efficient way, please, consider donating directly to these local and local partnered organizations on the torn by this horrible war land of the people. Our goal is through our curated art projects to bring attention to these local grass roots organizations.
We thank you.

Founded in 1948, Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 U.S. states and more than 90 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay. Direct Relief has deployed more than 250 tons of medical aid to Ukraine since the war broke out. The organization is working with Ukraine’s Ministry of Health and other groups in the region to provide requested medical aid — from field medic backpacks to oxygen concentrators — while preparing to offer longer-term aid to people displaced or affected by the war.
