Aid for Ukraine with trust, efficiency, and love

Mission

Direct humanitarian aid to Ukraine with high financial efficiency and a human touch. FINANCIAL EFFICIENCY We spend 100% of humanitarian aid donations received on shipping costs for supplies donated separately and collected by our all volunteer network, moved with donated trucks, and stored in donated spaces. We get financial leverage on cash donations because we don't purchase supplies, we just pay the shipping. HUMAN TOUCH iLoveUkraine believes the best of humanity will triumph over war atrocity. We decorate our supply shipments to Ukraine with yellow and blue hearts drawn by school children. We thank our donors individually. We are grateful for the help we have been given and we pray for peace.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Direct humanitarian aid to Ukraine with high financial efficiency and a human touch. We want to relieve the suffering of Ukrainian refugees, women, children, orphans, and families who were devastated by the invasion.

NO POVERTY: We help refugees settle in safe new countries and find employment.
ZERO HUNGER: We are sending food supplies to Ukrainians with limited food.
GOOD HEATH AND WELL BEING: We are sending medical aid to Ukrainians whose medical system has been broken down by the war.
GENDER EQUALITY: We send humanitarian aid to the vulnerable who are primarily the women and children who have been impacted by the war.
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION: We send water purification equipment to those whose plumbing and sanitation have been damaged.
PEACE JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS: We promote peace in Ukraine by raising awareness of the humanitarian crisis caused by the war.
