Ukraine Protection and Development Fund
The Ukraine Protection and Development Fund was established to help resolve the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine resulting from the Russian invasion that started on 24 February 2022, which was, in fact, a continuation of Russian aggression against Ukraine that started overtly in 2014 with the invasion of Crimea and prior to that on a political level.
Ukrainians have done what the world considered impossible: they have stopped and destroyed a good part of the Russian army and exposed Putin’s lies and manipulations.
In the face of cynical Russian bombing, blackouts, Bucha, torture chambers, mass graves – Ukrainians are positive they will prevail, and after victory Ukraine will be safe from Russian attacks in the future because Russia and the world will have seen and have to respect Ukraine as a single, united country that is NEITHER RUSSIA NOR RUSSIAN.
Ukraine Protection and Development Fund is proud to be a part of helping Ukraine and Ukrainians in their battle for freedom, independence and safety.
Including actions of our individuals prior to establishing the fund, we have provided more than $500k in assistance to Ukraine, including the supply of:
We have also helped a lot of other charities from the United States, Ukraine and other countries get things done here, including sourcing, logistics, delivery, and photo confirmation.

We are proud of our partners that we have helped and proud that our donors have trusted and entrusted us. And positive in a safe, prosperous, victorious Ukraine.
Through our own fundraising efforts, we have supplied more than $500,000 USD in body armour (helmets, ceramic and metal plates, bulletproof vests and carriers) directly to various military units in Ukraine.
Through Computers for the Front, we have supplied more than 500 pieces of electronic equipment including laptops, tablets, desktops and printers to various military units.
11 computers were donated to Computers for the Front for the Ukrainian Army. The batteries are dead, and 2 printers need power and connection cables.
