We are UAid-Direct

A charity providing aid and assistance to the people of Ukraine

Donate Goods

Food, medicine, hygiene items, clothing and equipment.

Financial Donations

These can be general or specific. For example, for helping children, helping with our transport network (vehicle purchase or fuel costs) or for specific goods.

Help Us

We welcome your help. If you would like to help us with transport, warehousing or sourcing get in touch.

100% of donations are used to carry out our mission.

Our Mission

To provide direct help to those in Ukraine who do not have a choice in war. Our focus is on helping women and children that are often overlooked, neglected, vulnerable and unable to evacuate: orphanages, nursing homes, domestic violence shelters, safe homes and hospitals.

We take food, medicine, hygiene supplies and clothing via the quickest and safest route into Ukraine, often able to deliver within 48-72 hours of receiving an order. As a completely volunteer-led effort, we use 100% of your donations to carry out our mission.

Our Approach

We work in three simple layers:

1. Receiving Requests

We receive many requests for assistance. We start by vetting the individual or organisation to ensure it's genuine, and then we triage the request and start working to secure the items needed. 

2. Sourcing and storage

Our warehouse team in Poland will then check to see if we have the items in storage. If so, it can be assigned for delivery. If not, we will work to secure the item through donation, or through fundraising to purchase new.

3. Transport and follow up

Once our sourcing team is ready, the goods are labelled and loaded with one of our drivers. We use a network of trusted Ukrainian and international drivers to deliver goods across Ukraine.
