In civilian life we all take electricity for granted. We sleepily creep into the kitchen at night, find the switch and squint our eyes in the bright light. Flipping through social networks on our smartphone, we switch on the electric kettle. Easy, comfortable, as it should be.
At the same time, electricity can almost be considered a luxury. A dim light bulb in a dugout, the right amount of charge for a phone, warmth to dry wet boots, or to charge electronic sights, night vision devices and thermal imagers. All these issues quickly become more relevant if there is no electricity at all. And the steady buzz of a generator indicates that at least for some soldiers these issues soldiers are addressed. Electricity at the front is a vital necessity.
That is why The People’s Project continues to supply generators to the troops. This time the three generators were sent to the 701 fighters of the Separate Battalion of Marines.
This means that three more defense points in Mariupol will reverberate with the same uniform and soothing hum. Maybe they are not industrial generators and their power and not enough to supply energy to a lot, but at least the Marines’ primary needs will be met. This means night vision devices and thermal imagers will be charged, which will continue to serve snipers on watch for saboteurs and radios will always be connected. This means life is a little easier for Ukraine’s soldiers.
They are mindful everything needed is purchased with your donations. They are always sincerely grateful.
On Wednesday we visited the fighters in Mariupol. Given the imminent winter and operational needs, we must bring the Marines much needed equipment. What that equipment is you can always refer to the list in the project Mariupol Defenders.
If you have the opportunity to participate and assist in meeting the needs of Ukraine’s defenders – we are always grateful. Get involved in the project Mariupol Defenders.
