Help a Ukrainian Family Seeking Refuge From War

My name is Viktor Cherniyavsky; I am a Ukrainian citizen. My wife and 8-year-old son are currently in Poland, seeking refuge from the bloody war. I remain in Kyiv to defend my country. Because of the war, I cannot provide for them, and I ask you to help them pay for housing, food, and essential goods.
 
In 2014, I helped many Ukrainian civilians evacuate from the war zone in Russian-occupied Donbas. You can read my full story in English here. 
 
When the invasion started yesterday, I moved my wife and 8-year-old son to Poland, seeking temporary refuge from Russian bombs and bullets for them. I remain in Kyiv to defend my country and help fellow Ukrainians in time of need.

My job as a volunteer is saving and evacuating people to the safe zones from Kyiv and Chernihiv regions and providing humanitarian aid. So far, I've saved 74 persons, brought 30 tons of humanitarian aid to Ukraine and assisted former American soldiers in moving 32 tons of medical aid to Ukraine, etc. You can read what the first month of war was like for me here.
 
Please donate whatever you can. Every donation allows my wife and son to afford a roof over their heads and a meal on their table in the coming days and weeks as they wait for the war to end.
