Immediate Aid To Refugees Fleeing Ukraine

Team Ukraine Love is a mission by Adventurers for Change in collaboration with Yes Theory  to aid refugees in Poland displaced by the crisis in Ukraine and those within Ukraine. Led by Max Rantz-McDonald, Victoria Umanska and AJ Forsythe, this humanitarian effort is focused on providing immediate aid to those in need, and transparency to those who support the cause. Team Ukraine Love is currently working out of Warsaw, Poland, supporting refugee centers around the city and making daily trips to the Ukrainian border  to drop off aid. We are focused on finding out what people need, figuring out how we can provide it, and then mobilizing these efforts as quickly as possible. 

Since launching this campaign (Day 5 of the war), we have been blown away by the response we have seen internationally, including over 6,500 donations from 114 countries around the world. When we first arrived, we started with a goal to raise $50,000 USD, which has since increased to $1,000,000 USD. Almost all of this money has been allocated to specific projects, so we need help raising the remaining amount. We are so close to our goal !

These donations have gone towards 2 places: aiding people who are still in Ukraine, and helping refugees who have come to Poland. We have been taking trips down to the border of Ukraine and Poland to deliver supplies such as generators, sleeping bags, hand warmers, socks, and underwear. In Warsaw, we have been providing supplies to local refugee shelters and distributing food, clothing, power banks, mental health resources, and lodging. 

We have also paired up with a Polish supermarket store to provide €110,000 worth of gift cards to refugees. These gift cards are being distributed at shelters and in train stations around Warsaw, and give people the opportunity to purchase specific goods. This is in an effort to provide people with the dignity of choice. 

As a small organization, we are capable of getting on the ground, figuring out directly what refugees are in need of, and find a way to make sure they get it. The more we do, the more we see what needs to be done. 

In order to continue to provide aid, reaching our financial goal is essential. ALL money donated goes directly towards those most effected by the crisis. Every single one of our volunteers pays for their own travel and lodging. We hope that you will consider donating to help us reach our goal, or sharing with those who are capable of doing so.
