Recipients of aid in Kamianske – toys and books bring a smile to the faces of two boys, aged three and six, forced from their homes, and everything in them, to stay alive.
The international charitable foundation, NGO Peremoga Victory and Future, is an organisation that Sunflower regularly works with to deliver aid to Ukrainian civilians. They receive the aid transported by Sunflower and help distribute it to the final receivers – mothers, children, and vulnerable people displaced from dangerous regions and occupied territories.
NGO Peremoga Victory and Future reaches out to Sunflower when a family needs urgent help. One such request came from a mother of two boys originally from Lugansk on the eastern border but forced to flee west with her family to Kamianske, Dnipropetrovsk.
“Hi, I am an internally displaced Ukrainian mother of two - three and six years old. Can our family get some help from your organisation? Diapers size 5, food, sweeties for children.”
Other requests from Victory and Future come on behalf of large families living in crowded accommodations.
“Dear kind people, please help our big family. We live in one flat - eight people, including three pensioners and two children. Our family saw a lot of grief and loss in the horrible war. Please help us survive this very difficult time. We were residents of Novoukrainka and Shahtarsk in the Donetsk region. Now we live in the city of Kamianske, Dnipropetrovsk.”
Others asking for help have nothing after barely escaping alive.
“Hello, could I ask for help? My two-year-old son and I are internally displaced people in Ukraine. We evacuated from Snihurivka of Mykolayiv oblast, which now is under Russian occupation. We escaped shelling as a miracle, we had to escape without clothes at all. We are renting tiny accommodation in Odessa, with almost no money.”
Requests like these pour in each day.
Sunflower hears - and answers - these calls for help
Sunflower matches foreign support to Victory and Future - and other verified NGOs across Ukraine - to enable the delivery of life-changing aid to all of these people.
Relief and gratitude are palpable in their messages of thanks.
“Good afternoon! Our family has got your aid. The volume amazes us. The parcel is very big. We are grateful for your help. We wish you good health and patience. We believe in Victory! Peace to all!”.
“We have received the humanitarian aid. We have never seen such a big volume of aid. Huge selection, big volume, the video I record cannot show our feelings. We are shocked. Thank you”.
“Thank you. We have just received your humanitarian package. We are very grateful for your aid. We have never received so much ever. Everything is tasty and very high quality. Also, clothes and toys for my child were a surprise. Thank you. You are the best.”
