Emergency Response is the SOS button that is pressed in times of need. We created this project to provide urgent help and support in face of an extreme or unforeseen situation in Ukraine. Today, the sovereign nation of Ukraine has to deal with the most horrendous and catastrophic emergency – a brutal invasion. Vostok Donetsk is responding to this by providing critical humanitarian war relief and recovery depending on the most urgent needs as they evolve, and amplifying the voices of Ukrainians.
The current emergency response is focused on purchasing medical supplies for critical situations like blood loss and other tactical medicine items, hospital supplies, and tech enabled emergency response supplies that facilitate the delivery of this aid. Our procurement and logistics teams are made up of a trusted volunteer network we’ve nurtured since 2004 and partner organizations worldwide like Nova Ukraine, United Help Ukraine, Revived Soldiers Ukraine, Sunflower for Peace, Euromaidan-Warszava, and Kryla Nadiyi. We are also working with governments and embassies on helping to establish humanitarian corridors.
