Ukrainian Support Project by University Students
In presence of the ongoing devastating events in Ukraine, students across local NYC universities have felt the urge to support the country in any capacity that they can. The project we have started under the NPREMA umbrella has enabled us to connect with students in New York to organize humanitarian aid item drives within our communities, which we then deliver to local Ukrainian shipping services (Nova Poshta, TRT, and Meest) transporting donations directly to the beneficiary banks within Kyiv and Lviv.
Currently, we are in need of all the support we can get in providing humanitarian aid overseas. If you are interested in setting up a donations drop off location within your university or local community or have items you would like to donate please contact us via the form below. We are happy to guide you through how to get involved. Categorically the items in need of donation include clothing (children and adults), medical supplies, sanitary items, and non-perishable goods.
How You Can Help
If you are interested in either donating to one of our collection sites or starting your own drop-off box, please see the comprehensive list of items we are collecting attached below.
As the situation continues to unfold, the shipping services that we are working with have exhausted their emergency funds and are seeking donations to enable the continuation of the transport of the donations. Our project contributors have been covering some of the transport and shipping expenses out of pocket to get the donations off the ground, but we could use all support we can get to help continue our efforts and assist the shipping services to continue their efforts. Donations of all sizes will be incredibly helpful to the maintenance of this initiative.
Thank you to everyone in the community for your continued support and we will continue to update this page with our progress as we try to help one step at a time.
