The helmet that saved a Ukrainian soldier’s life

Last week, one of our military partners shared this photo and said: “This is one of the Spirit of America helmets from a firefight last night in Mykolaiv. It saved his life.”
Spirit of America has delivered more than 65 tons of lifesaving supplies and equipment into the hands of Ukrainians. And, 49 more tons are on the way right now — food, medical supplies, combat boots, 2,250 bulletproof vests, and 1,905 ballistic helmets like the one above.

This aid will protect thousands more soldiers and civilian volunteers against Russia’s unjustified war on their freedom.

Ordinary citizens have become soldiers overnight. We are outfitting Ukrainian defenders with protective gear to help shield them from Russian fire.

As the photo of the helmet proves, your support really will save lives.

Will you give a gift to protect one more Ukrainian?
