As a result of help from people so far, we have been able to help deliver 32 civilian trucks and lots of medical gear through an excellent channel directly managed by two dear friends in London. They are buying trucks, recruiting drivers and in many cases driving the trucks themselves in coordination with a Ukrainian group based in Lviv and Kyiv that is prioritizing delivery directly to ‘high-action’ areas that need additional capability in supply, medevac, and general transportation.
Civilian SUVs and trucks are playing a vital role in the humanitarian and military effort in Ukraine, and these vehicles are in short supply and urgently needed.
Upon hearing of this our friends took action. They bought a truck, filled it with medicine, bandages, night vision monocles, and boots. And then they drove it from their flat in London to Western Ukraine and delivered it directly to a frontline soldier who drove it East, picked up the rest of his team who had been without transportation, delivered the medical supplies, and re-entered combat operations.
Our friends returned home, recruited other friends to help, and bought another truck. And another. As of today an astounding 32 vehicles!
The outpouring of support that they have received is amazing, and at times unexpected. They receive pictures (like these and more) from each unit receiving a truck, some with thank you cards from the soldier’s family.
