These funds were used to purchase: tactical unloaders, thermal imagers, batteries, gasoline generators, power banks, quadcopters, construction materials and tools, fuels and lubricants, bags, some medical devices and much more.
“On February 25, at 2 p.m., the “Fond Gromady Zhytomyr” together with the Zhytomyr City Council launched an official fundraising campaign in support and protection of Zhytomyr.
Results: in total, more than 8.8 million hryvnias (including donations in all currencies) were transferred to the official accounts of the “Fond Gromady Zhytomyr” during the 24 days of the war. The receipts sent by people and companies every day, sent by all of you, FRIENDS, show that everyone understands the importance of supporting our military, the need to help the victims of the cynical ruthless invasion of the occupiers. During these 24 days, with the funds received on the Fund’s accounts, we managed to purchase and transfer a lot of valuable and necessary things to our military, help in setting up defense checkpoints, organize deliveries of important cargo and much more. We are not always able to report in detail on the money spent in the current environment, so as not to “convey” people, locations and equipment, but the reports will be after the victory. And now security is more important” said Zhanna Solovyova, head of the “Fond Gromady Zhytomyr”’s board, on her Facebook page.
