Support for the Ukrainian war victims
You have already donated almost 48 million Polish zlotys to support Ukraine, the country fighting for its independence. We cannot even find the right words to express our gratitude for your generosity. Good deeds are always the best solution to the harm made to innocent people. Thanks to you and on your behalf, we can constantly bring help to those in need. Here’s what we have achieved in the last couple of days:
Today, a couple of tons of food products and medical supplies have been delivered to Lviv to a territorial defence troops made up of volunteers, who help the people of Ukraine in the most dangerous areas of the country. The shipment of goods from our warehouse is handled by amazing volunteers from Lviv and it will be delivered directly to the people and places requiring help.
Ukraine receives even more support from us, however, we cannot inform you about the type of help due to security reasons and upon the requests from our Ukrainian partners.
We have also delivered 5000 blankets to the Caritas charity in the archdiocese in Poznan, to support the reception centre of the Poznań International Fair.
We have provided financial support for the Siemacha Association in Cracow, which helps the children of Ukraine. Currently, ca. 300 children, who have fled poverty and war, have found a shelter in the Cracow and Wroclaw branches of the Association. It provides them with daycare, educational support and development possibilities.
We will keep you updated about our next activities.
today is the 27th day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It is unbelievable, that this nightmare has been taking place beyond the eastern border for nearly a month… During that time, hundreds of thousands of kind-hearted people rushed with support, which can be seen on the donation stripe of our campaign—it is getting greener every day, and we cannot thank you enough.
We are converting the raised funds into supplies, that are being delivered to the people of Ukraine, the war victims.
Here is the latest news from the field:
The end of last week turned out to be extremely busy for our warehouse people, who take care of dispatching the Siepomaga humanitarian aid supplies to Ukraine. On Friday, we sent 10 palettes of medical supplies, among others, surgical sutures, scalpels, dressings, and gloves, and 28 palettes containing shampoos, shower gels, soaps, and baby powders. On Saturday, people of Lviv also received 800 sleeping pads (2.5 cm thick), which are indispensable in the field and temporary shelters located near the war zone.
We sent 100 sleeping pads, 100 first-aid kits and one AED with spare electrode pads to the refugee shelter in Kamieniec Podolski. (Ages ago the city was generally considered the largest Polish fortress in the Eastern Borderlands). Thanks to our trusted partners from Poland and Ukraine, these supplies will be delivered in the upcoming days.
For a couple of days, we were trying to safely evacuate a beneficiary of the Siepomaga Foundation from a small town at Dniester river, a hundred kilometres east of Kyiv, to Poland. On Friday evening, the little boy from Ukraine suffering from cancer, was transported with his family: mother, younger brother (and his dog) from the Ukrainian-Polish border to Poznań. Now they are resting. We are preparing them for a trip to Germany, where the boy—thanks to the donations from Siepomaga.pl —will undergo therapy. “After that, we want to go back to Poland and stay there”—says Svieta, our beneficiary’s mother.
We found out about a dramatic call for humanitarian aid from Bachmut city in the Donetsk region. Every day, thousands of people flee here from the bombed cities, located east of Ukraine. There is no food and place to sleep. Today, two trucks of the Siepomaga Foundation with food supplies will take off to the help centre in Bachmut. There is an 1800 km drive ahead of them.
A while ago, we sent 85 high-tech Motorola radios to Ukraine. Today the paramedics thanked us for the devices, which had been purchased thanks to the Siepomaga Donors. We provide help where it is needed the most.
Support and share—the largest national campaign to help war victims of Ukraine!
It’s been almost 3 weeks since our reality changed irreversibly. News about the suffering of the civilians, which makes the blood run cold, has been coming from information channels on a regular basis. They concern simple people, who used to lead a normal life. Each day, tens of thousands of people are heading to the West across the Polish-Ukrainian border, fleeing from bombs and danger, waiting at every corner. Most of the Ukrainian people stayed in their homeland, though. Thanks to you and this campaign, we can support both of them.
Our latest activities:
One of the supplies were delivered to Lviv on Saturday afternoon! The recipients of our “package” were medical centres and services helping sick and wounded people in eastern Ukraine. According to the latest news, ⅔ of patients in Lviv hospitals have been evacuated from the East.
Our support included ca. 3 tons of extremely necessary medical supplies: individual dressings, specialised dressings, burn response kits, hydrogel dressings, drainage kits, rolled gauzes, neck collars, foil blankets, antibacterial silver dressings, disposable delivery surgical kits, Kramer splints, plaster bandages, synthetic stiffening and elastic braces, gauze bandages, highly absorbent gauze pads, hygiene pads, disinfectant solutions, sanitisers, and headlamps.
On Monday evening, the rescue workers of the RK Rescue Support Foundation collected from our warehouse near Poznań medical equipment that will be delivered to the children’s hospital in Lviv. In Warsaw, at nighttime, the devices were put into an ambulance, which will arrive in Ukraine on Wednesday morning. After the delivery, the ambulance will go back to Poland and bring a child requiring urgent treatment.
The first-aid kits purchased by the Siepomaga Foundation have been delivered to A0409 unit in Kyiv. We have just received a photo from the “end users”. Together we have a great POWER to help!
We have responded to a dramatic request of Tereszpol mayor to finance vaccines against hepatitis A for the group of a couple of tens of Ukrainian refugees, who are currently staying in the Sub-Carpathian region (these vaccines are non-reimbursable).
We will keep you posted about our next activities. Thank you again and again for your generosity and trust from the bottom of our hearts!

Support and share—the largest national fundraiser for war victims in Ukraine!
for 2 weeks there has been the largest response of Donors going on in the history of Siepomaga.
The support for our war-stricken neighbours is coming from every part of the world. Thank you for every penny, dollar, euro… Every donation enables us to bring help where it is needed the most.
Ukraine—a home that hasn’t been finished yet. Loved by so many people. There are no words to describe the pain caused by such a huge loss. Everything you know, everything you love— it’s already gone. Familiar landscape, scents, places. The school you went to, the hospital you were born in. All is left is ruins. And a hole in your heart filled with sorrow, anger, and grief. All we can do it cover it with support and good deeds.
In the last couple of days, thanks to your donations, we have managed to:
Purchase dressings and first-aid supplies used in the battlefield, which is currently one of the most needed and deficient equipment in Ukraine. Thanks to the company specialised in manufacturing such supplies, we have ordered 10 000 special tactical dressings, that will be delivered to our warehouses in 2-3 days and then transported to Ukraine. This is another purchase financed by the Siepomaga Foundation—along with vented dressings—that will be used by the medical services in the battlefield. Its total cost was 1,6 million zlotys.
Pass in front of the OKO.PRESS cameras, among others, 250 pairs of tactical military boots for Territorial Defense Forces. “The boots will be distributed among other detachments, to which the delivery of such supplies cannot be realised”—says the woman from Ukrainian services.
Purchase 225 000 protein bars and chocolate bars, which are a solid and proven food in extreme conditions. Yesterday we delivered them to the Government Strategic Reserve Agency (RARS). In the next days, they will be transported to Ukraine. The food is one of the basic needs in the war zone and refugee areas.
Purchase almost 10 000 disposable diapers for babies, 32 000 menstrual pads and over 44 000 wet wipes for a total amount of over 465 000 zlotys. The citizens of Ukrainian cities in the war zone and the refugees, especially women and children, require the personal hygiene supplies, which have been delivered to RARS warehouses, from where, in cooperation with Ukrainian institutions, they will be transported to Ukraine.
Send almost 80 modern VHF radios worth totally ca. 250 000 zlotys. These devices enable, among others, encrypted digital or analog communication, data transmission, and operator localisation via GPS. These are the most advanced and reliable devices, used for development of communication systems during rescue operations and humanitarian activities. The type and place of its delivery has been discussed with Ukrainian experts. Our help goes to the areas where it is needed the most.
Prepare special support for Ukrainian families, who fled Ukraine to Poland. From now on they can create dedicated, individual campaigns, from which the donations can be withdrawn and used for daily needs. If you know any refugees from Ukraine, please help them launch their campaign:
We will keep you updated on our next activities. Thank you for your generosity and trust with all our hearts! That’s just the beginning, and your support will be also needed in the following months.
We are grateful, that you help us help others! Together we have a great POWER!
The purchased supplies will be transported to the Hendi company, which has provided free access to its warehouses to the Siepomaga Foundation in the logistics centre near Poznan.
Dear Donors, for many years you have been proving that you are the best donor community in the world, but despite that, we are still surprised with such a huge amount of donations and the speed at which the funds have been raised to support Ukraine. Thank you for your trust from the bottom of our hearts.
How do we launch our support today?
First, we are going to focus on purchasing large amounts of the most needed food products. We want to place them on pallets, which makes the logistics easier, without a need to sort them.
We keep in touch with KPRM and RARS (Government Strategic Reserves Agency) teams, which, together with the Ukrainian government, have been coordinating the humanitarian aid for Ukraine. In this way, we are going to support the Agency by providing Ukraine with the most urgent supplies, which are being passed on to people by the Ukrainian site. Today we have purchased a truck with 65 000 tinned food which in the first place will be transported to the government warehouse, and next, across the Ukrainian border. Further purchases will be made in the following days. As a Foundation, we have an opportunity to organise large supplies, and we are happy that there is a fixed procedure for providing humanitarian aid, which allows this process to run safely.
Thanks to the cooperation with the Zobacz Mnie Foundation (in English: “Look at me”) we are going to offer support for 66 boys from Kyiv and their guardians, who came to Wroclaw for a football tournament a couple of days ago, and due to an ongoing situation, they cannot go back home. We are going to provide them with accommodation, psychological support, and sports training. We are also planning to bring to Poland their mothers and siblings.
Thanks to the cooperation with Iskierka Foundation, we are going to help tens of families of children with cancer, who keep coming to four Polish clinics for treatment. Two of these children are being treated in Rzeszow, one of them in Katowice, and another one in Zabrze. They will also need support, which includes food, clothing, and accommodation.
We have found the attached short clip today online. It breaks our hearts, and this situation should never have occurred. Unfortunately, that’s how the lives of thousands of innocent children in Ukraine have looked like for the last couple of days. They are on our minds when we are coming with help…
We will keep you updated with our next activities. Once again, thank you for your generosity and trust from the bottom of our hearts! You help us help others! Together we have a Great Power!

The conflict in Ukraine is unimaginable suffering of thousands of innocent people. Ukraine is at war…
We have been watching eastern Ukraine with a particular concern, and what innocent people, living in the war-threatened area, are about to face—hardly a thousand kilometres away from Poland. Unfortunately, the worst has happened. There are bombs, fire, guns, and victims.
And there will be more. Tanks have never been a symbol of peace. We cannot predict, what will happen in the days to come, but the scenarios are far from optimistic, and people must receive help.
The armed conflicts triggered in the offices of the highest levels of government mostly affect the tiniest and the most vulnerable ones—the civilian population, women, children, and elderly people.
The conflict in eastern Ukraine has continued since 2014, yet the events from the last couple of days have shown, that the war turmoil has gone too far. We would love to have such power to stop this. However, we can take action and do what we are best at. Bring help wherever people are suffering.
This campaign was created to raise funds for war victims. The scope of support will depend on the scale of development of the armed conflict in Ukraine, and adapted to the needs of the people. We have been monitoring the whole situation, and we will be in constant touch with the organisations helping Ukraine, which will contact us, asking for support. Every hour brings new information, and everything is constantly changing.
We want to thank all people who are not indifferent to the pain of others.
If you can help, and want to join us… Let’s do it together!
If you cannot help, support us with positive thoughts and keep your fingers crossed. War is an enormous tragedy. Let’s stick together with our neighbours.
* The campaign is managed by the Siepomaga Foundation, which, as a charity, can quickly finance helpful organisations acting for the support of Ukraine.
The whole amount of funds will be donated to support war victims in Ukraine
