About Us

When the Russians rolled across its border in February 2022, the number of people fighting to defend Ukraine massively increased within a number of weeks. Foreign governments poured large amounts of equipment and material into the country, yet it still wasn’t enough to cover demand. Desperate messages emerged from the frontline. Those messages reached Ukraine Aid Operations. Inspired by the bravery of the Ukrainian defenders, we have committed ourselves to providing them with essential lifesaving gear. 

We have raised over six million dollars, which is spent on the purchase and transport of armored plates, helmets, radios, drones, gloves, IFAKs, nightvision, vehicles and many other, smaller items. These items are all delivered straight into the hands of the units that need them, thus minimizing the risk of things ending up in the wrong place.

The team has rapidly grown to dozens of volunteers around the world who are helping to raise funds and find and deliver equipment directly to the units in need.

Our organization is registered in Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States. In the U.S. , we are an official 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, which makes US donations tax-deductible.
