San Francisco, CA, December 15th, 2022 – This year, Nova Ukraine provided the equivalent of $55.5 million in aid supporting the large-scale humanitarian efforts throughout Ukraine. Of that, $37.5 million were funds spent on projects, and $18 million were in-kind donations. Nova Ukraine leadership reports having raised over $64 million to date, allowing humanitarian projects to continue into 2023 and giving Nova Ukraine the ability to respond to new challenges facing Ukraine.
More than half of the monetary donations went to emergency first aid, hospital medicine, supplies, and medical equipment. Another 20% helped procure food and basic-needs items. The remainder funded infrastructure and supply-chain efforts, refugee evacuations, and animal welfare projects. Nova Ukraine applies stringent accounting standards to all projects and ensures transparency through public reporting on NovaUkraine.org .
According to Nova Ukraine co-chairman Ostap Korkuna, “since the beginning of Russia’s large-scale attack on Ukraine, we’ve been continuously looking for effective ways to help the people of Ukraine. We expanded our volunteer base and built supply chains and partnerships. We have many ongoing large-scale projects, and we also support local volunteers helping Ukrainians survive the harsh winter, often without power or heating due to continuous Russian rocket strikes. None of this would be possible without the support of more than 160,000 individual donors. We continue to collect donations to aid more Ukrainians through this tough winter. Even a small donation can have a significant impact.”
Nova Ukraine and the leadership team would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to all partners and donors for their continued support, expertise, and sacrifice during this difficult time.
