WHO WE ARE
People’s Project is a non-commercial and nonprofit organization. It is an association made up of volunteers and caring people who coordinate their efforts for social initiatives aimed to support the People of Ukraine. Thousands of volunteers and benefactors from throughout Ukraine and abroad are engaged in activities carried out by People’s Project. For the whole period of work, we realized over a hundred charity projects, the total budget of which amounts to over 100 million hryvnias. And know what? We are ready to account for each penny of it, both raised or spent.
It all began in the spring of 2014 when annexation of the Crimea and war in Donbas started. A few volunteers visited Chonhar (a checkpoint in Kherson region, South Ukraine, bordering occupied Crimea) where our paratroopers were holding defense then. The situation was rather terrible – despite determination shown by the fighters, material destitution was obvious. The volunteers combined their efforts in commitment to turn the remains of the Ukrainian army into a capable and well-equipped entity as well as to take care of ordinary people suffering during the war.
There were five enthusiasts who acted as the driving force behind the Project. Within just a half of a year, hundreds of sympathetic people joined in. Over time, apart from supporting combat troops, we went in further medical treatment for wounded. We decided to use up-to-date approach involving the application of cutting-edge technologies: we started to grow up new skin and bones for those fighters who had been abandoned by conventional medicine. We also bought an innovative apparatus for rehabilitation of wounded. As well as saved about eighty heavily injured fighters from death, amputation, and lifetime maim; to restore them and give them the chance for a normal life. Today, we are proceeding with this kind of work.
Now, apart from the material backing of troops and medical centers, aside from treatment of wounded fighters and other charity initiatives, we are trying to develop and support promising projects and social initiatives useful for our country and able of changing our fellow citizens’ lives for the better. This is the sphere where we can prove truly useful for Ukraine.
And here is a good example: within one of our recently completed initiatives, O.R. Upgrade, People’s Project raised necessary funds and bought equipment for modernization of surgery blocks of Cherkasy Third City Emergency Hospital. You can read the detailed story following the link. A bit earlier we implemented the Bloodmobile project, under which assisted in equipping of a special vehicle for prompt delivery of donor blood to hospitals in frontline areas.
