Dear partners and friends
The events in Ukraine are very distressing for all of us.
As an organization, we want to contribute to support the people in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian government has called on the population to join the armed resistance against the Russian invasion. Thousands have responded to this call. But they are not sufficiently equipped and many among them have never held a weapon.
These are ordinary people - like you, like us - who are very afraid. These civilian defence units lack many things. We know from our partner organizations in Ukraine and from our Ukrainian colleagues that there is a particularly urgent need for bulletproof vests. Manufacturers are currently reluctant to sell directly to Ukraine. That is why we are needed. All of us.
We have already pre-ordered vests worth 10,000 EUR. However, we cannot manage this project alone - we need your support! 10% of the costs will be covered by our association. For the rest we need you.
It's simple: We bring vests to the places where they save lives, you help, and the first delivery is just the beginning.
You can find all the background information below.
We look forward to your support.

Together with our whole team in Berlin and our partners in Ukraine.
