What Makes Us Different
The reasons Ukraine continues to stand and endure against the tyranny of a (so called) “superpower” have to do with the dignity, integrity, strength and perseverance of its people.Qualities that we feel are found in our charitable organization, Funds for United Nations SDG (Sustainable Development Goals).Here are some differences between us and other charitable organizations inside or outside of Ukraine:1) We are highly trustworthy and official. We are sanctioned by the United Nations. Though not funded by the UN, we are fully accountable to them for all transactions and deeds.2) Our staff work with passion and purpose, not for pay. We are Volunteers; many of the team are themselves Internally Displaced People (IDPs), having joined us after fleeing war zones in Ukraine. Our team members receive no salaries or any percentage from donations - so we are fully non-profit and voluntary.3) All aid that we receive and deliver is documented with photos, videos, and monthly accounting reports. This documentation is done in accordance with United Nations protocols, and is delivered to the UN head office.4) While there are other worthy organizations conducting their humanitarian work from neighboring countries, or exclusively at Ukraine’s western border, we go to ‘Ground Zero’ - to the very front - and deliver where risks are high. The people we serve in these war zones include the elderly, disabled, children, families with multiple kids, special needs children and elderly (including psychological needs), orphans, people who have lost their homes, hospitals at the front, plus areas where winter weather increases the need for generators and power stations. We provide care for abandoned and wounded pets. We also rescue civilians and soldiers who have been wounded - even tortured - by Russian troops in areas such as Azovstal Mariupol, Borodianka, Bucha, Majariv, Donetsk region, etc).5) We offer to all IDPs a haven at our base - which is the safest area still in Ukraine in the Carpathian Mountains. Here they receive housing with medical service, three daily meals, and schooling for kids - all for free! The IDPs we shelter (officially more than 5,000) can also come to our storage warehouse and get all the supplies they need: specialized baby food, clothing, hygiene, medicine, and more.These are the qualities that make us… US! The Ukrainian people we have helped, the soldiers we support at the front lines – they are our witnesses.
