Six months ago, back in March, the Slots City Foundation reoriented their activities to help the army. From October, a new phase in the Fund’s life began. We divided our purchases into two programs: humanitarian aid and drones. Such changes are a good opportunity to summarize and report on what we managed to do for the Armed Forces of Ukraine over the past six months.
So, together with friends and volunteers in the past half a year we helped purchase the following items for the army:
- 15 cars, including 2 buses and one truck,
- 8 drones,
- 6 night vision devices, including 4 thermal imagers ,
- 5 transfers of equipment,
- 3 promotions of humanitarian aid transfers,
- 3 collections of technical equipment, including – electric generators and sets of radios.
- In addition, 3 purchases were made to provide accommodation, food and clothing to various individual teams, and also transferred 1 million in one check to the “Come Back Alive” Fund.
During this time, the following millitary units and agencies received help from us:
- Marine Corps Brigades of Ukraine (among them – 35, 36 and others),
- Brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including territorial defense (among them – 61, 93, 94 . The Department of the Naval Forces of Ukraine,
- Maritime special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine,
- Border troops,
- UAV school,
- The displaced persons.
From March to August only more than 7 million 70 thousand hryvnias were directed to help the army (the exact figure is 7,074,550 hryvnias).
“Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, we have been helping the army, information forces, humanitarian projects with everything we can: finance, equipment search, repairs, procurement, expertise. We will continue to do everything to bring our victory closer. And at the same time, we have to help people who have lost their homes to survive this difficult time. Help is important especially during the difficult winter, which is already approaching. Helping to defend the country and protect people is one of the main tasks of the Slots City Foundation during the martial law,” Stas Andreev, director of the Slots City Foundation, is confident.
With the beginning of martial law, all charitable projects of the Foundation were reoriented to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We receive inquiries directly from the military. Next, together with investors, donors, friends and partners, we carefully study the details of the request for help, make the necessary purchases and report on all the developments and progress.
