Help for Ukraine via Czech and Slovakia

We are currently raising funds to buy a second pickup truck that can be used to transport supplies throughout the Eastern part of Ukraine.   Our contact in Olomouc, who sold us the first pickup at a reduced price, has a second vehicle ready for export.  The price for the Nissan Navara is 190,000 Czech Crowns (about $8000).  It took some work, but we now have a process in place to handle all of the paperwork related to purchase and export.  Given that these vehicles are life savers, we are trying to raise funds for the second one.  

We have donated $2,000 to Hotel Pratoll in Ricany where 30 refugee families are living
We have donated $1,000 to setup a refugee house in Kosice where 3 refugee families are living
We have exported 2.7 tons of food and first aid kits from Prague to our friends in Svalyava
We have exported 100,000kc of medicine (roughly $5,000) through a Catholic Charity 
We have exported one Nissan Navara D20 truck to our friends in Svalyava.

1. Aaron Burda is related to the funds beneficiaries via his now extensive work over the last three months organizing projects to help Ukraine.  Peter Feher has worked extensively with refugees in Kosice and with organizations in Uzghorod.

2. We will be withdrawing funds from Gofundme to either Aaron Burda's personal bank account and then transferring it to Aaron Burda's Czech Trade License bank account (a registered payer of VAT in Europe).  Alternatively, we will be withdrawing funds to Aaron's US LLC (Cepuder, Steiner and Dohnalek LLC) a Nevada based corporation with bank accounts at Nevada State Bank.  From there, funds will be transferred via TransferWise to Cepuder Steiner and Dohnalek's Czech Branch with bank accounts at Fio Banka a.s., which branch is also a European payer of VAT. 

3.  Funds will be use to purchase a Nissan Navara D40 pickup truck and then donate it to a Ukrainian volunteer organization in Svalyava.  That organization will implement repairs on the vehicle and then provide it as a resource to organizations in Eastern Ukraine.
