Help Ukraine win
Russian aggression in Ukraine is the greatest threat to freedom and democracy since WWII. The outcome will either empower freedom or embolden authoritarianism. We will live with the consequences for generations.
We have entered the most crucial phase. Ukraine has launched a counteroffensive that experts agree could tip the balance and shorten the path to victory for Ukrainians. Time is of the essence. You can help Ukraine win, defend freedom, and save lives by providing your support for Spirit of America’s Ukraine Program.
A proven track record of assistance
Working alongside our US military partners, Spirit of America has provided aid to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression since 2014. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion began in February 2022, we’ve delivered hundreds of tons and over $30 million in nonlethal assistance to the front lines in Ukraine including helmets, body armor, medical supplies, trucks, and successful preparedness training courses.
What Ukraine needs to win the war now
With the counteroffensive underway, Spirit of America is raising urgently needed assistance to help propel Ukraine to victory by providing continued support in the form of nonlethal frontline assistance and health and well-being services.
Frontline support includes nonlethal assistance such as 4×4 pickup trucks, surveillance drones, night vision goggles, as well as training and development. Health and well-being services are also needed and include medical equipment and combat showers that provide critically needed hygiene services to citizen soldiers on the front lines.
Vehicles continue to be urgently needed. After months of heavy fighting in which Territorial Defense Force (TDF) units have served continuously along the frontlines, they have an extreme need for 4×4 trucks to move troops, injured soldiers, and carry equipment.
Surveillance drones and night vision goggles are an integral part of the mission-critical gear identified by the TDF to help save precious lives and win the war. Surveillance drones and night vision goggles identify Russian threats to provide protection to the Ukrainian front lines.
Spirit of America continues to provide highly needed medical equipment including medical trauma kits, evacuation stretchers, and unmarked ambulances.
Ukrainian fighters have been on the front lines, in cold muddy trenches, for months now. Conditions have only become worse over time following the weather transition from winter to spring. The absence of a solution for maintaining personal hygiene has caused an increased number of soldiers to suffer from skin diseases and illnesses. It also has a devastating impact on individual and unit morale with a corresponding increase in sick leaves, mental health issues, and suicide rates.
Combat showers provide necessary hygiene and laundry services on the front lines for up to 50-100 soldiers a day, moving to where they’re needed most. Additionally, these units are used in vulnerable villages and communities, where civilians who haven’t had access to electricity or running water will also be able to use them.
With your support, 56 TDF captains completed training through the initial pilot Captain’s Career Course to receive combat preparedness training. Because of its effectiveness in mission success and saving lives, further training programs are being developed to train TDF noncommissioned officers and platoon leaders. Throughout 2023, we aim to have provided training for 500-900 noncommissioned officers and 600 platoon leaders.
Right now, you can make a direct impact for Ukrainians on the front lines by donating to Spirit of America. With your help, Ukraine can meet the moment and protect freedom and democracy for the world.
100% of your donation will go directly to the program expenses of helping Ukrainians. Spirit of America’s fundraising and management and general expenses are funded separately. Restricted donations in excess of a project’s need will be offered a refund.
