Our Animal Rescue Efforts in Ukraine

As the war rages in Ukraine, animals have been caught in the crossfire, with the situation growing more dire every day. While many Ukrainian zoos are supported by international zoo associations such as EAZA, small animal shelters – especially in Russian-occupied territories – have been struggling to maintain their care. In this disturbing video, over 300 dogs were found dead in a Borodyanka shelter after volunteers were unable to enter to provide food or water during the Russian occupation of the region. To help this crisis, Nova Ukraine is currently supporting several animal welfare organizations and volunteers that are caring for these injured ...

Generators Delivered to Chernihiv at a Heavy Cost

In the ongoing war in Ukraine, Russian shelling consistently targets civilian infrastructure, including critical objects like power plants and electrical facilities. As a result, power banks, generators and other power sources are some of the most critical items in besieged cities where active fighting is taking place. Nova Ukraine has purchased 17 gas-powered generators which have been delivered from Cherkasy to Chernihiv General Hospital where electricity and heat are currently out. Our volunteers had to transport the generators across the Desna river by boat, because all the bridges in the area have been destroyed. Sadly, while delivering these ...

Medical Supply Deliveries to Ukraine

March 31, 2022 Over a month into the war in Ukraine, Russian troops were pushed back near Kyiv and have started withdrawing. But fierce fighting continues in the East and South, so we must continue raising awareness in the US and the world, fundraise and coordinate urgent help for millions of Ukrainians impacted by the war. Senseless atrocities in Mariupol lead to a humanitarian tragedy, as the once thriving port city is being wiped off the map by constant Russian shelling, which also makes it impossible for aid to be delivered. Russia destroyed over 60% of Ukraine's oil infrastructure. Hospitals lack medical supplies and are regularly targeted ...

Partnering with UNICEF USA, AirBnB.org and more

March 22, 2022 It has been a difficult three weeks since Russia invaded Ukraine. Zelensky delivered an impassioned address to Congress urging the United States to do more to end the senseless humanitarian crisis caused by Russian aggression. The besieged city of Mariupol remains under heavy bombardment, with no food, water, or electricity. The Russian Air Force dropped a powerful bomb on a theater in Mariupol, where over a thousand civilians—many of them children—were seeking refuge, despite the word “CHILDREN” being prominently painted on two sides of the building for Russian pilots to see. Now, six countries are investigating war crimes ...
