Humanitarian aid to the city during wartime

Since the beginning of tha full-scale Russian aggression, the IT4Life foundation and members of the Kharkiv IT community have been combating the humanitarian crisis that arose in the wake of constant shelling of Kharkiv.

In the first week of the full-scale war we created a volunteer network consisting of restaurants, drivers and other caring people, who help the city.

Our network is made of approximately 450 volunteers and most of them work, under the constant shelling of Kharkiv, every day  without any break.

These volunteers bring humanitarian aid to all the Kharkiv districts: Novi Budynky, KhTZ, Piatykhatky, Saltivka, Pivnichna Saltivka, the city center, and settlements in the Kharkiv region.

  • address food and medicine delivery for people with limited mobility and people living in places with the damaged infrastructure;

  • evacuation of Kharkiv civilians, who became victims of shelling, to safe cities in Ukraine and Europe;
  • coordination of humanitarian aid from other Ukrainian cities to Kharkiv and Kharkiv region.
As of the end of March 2022, our volunteers have:

Address humanitarian aid for the victims

Since the  first days of the full-scale war, IT4Life  members together with other Kharkiv volunteer organizations actively collect and process requests for humanitarian aid from civilians and coordinate the delivery of food and medicine to the victims of war. The priority in aid is given to elderly people, women, children and people with disabilities.

Warm food for people

Over 20 restaurants prepare warm food for people in bomb shelters, hospitals and other hotspots in Kharkiv. To achieve this we get help from volunteering cooks, drivers, coordinators and packagers.

Each day we process hundreds of requests and then set out towards people who were left without homes or means to sustain themselves.

Coordination of humanitarian aid from other Ukrainian cities to Kharkiv and Kharkiv region.

Some of our volunteers work remotely, outside of Kharkiv. This enables them to buy essential goods that are temporarily unavailable in Kharkiv stores. We get this crucial aid thanks to many volunteering drivers and coordinators from various cities of Ukraine.

Evacuation of Kharkiv civilians, who became victims of shelling

By March, more than 1,000 residential buildings got damaged, leaving many people without housing. Thanks to transport companies that agreed to aid the people, we were able to save over 10,000 people, who got by buses to Poltava, Dnipro and a number of cities outside Ukraine.

How does the volunteering work:

  1. Collect the requests from people of Kharkiv in need.

    Every day we process requests from various city areas and classify them according to the areas of aid.

  2. Distribute the requests among volunteers.

    Depending on the request, we direct it into the corresponding volunteer chat room.

  3. Collect the aid.

    Look for the items requested in our warehouses. If we don’t have them available, then we place the order for them.  If this is a request for warm food — direct it to one of the volunteering restaurants.

  4. Coordinate the aid delivery.

    Volunteering coordinators set up the logistics for the aid delivery, help with the communication and provide the drivers and providers with the appropriate papers.

  5. Refill the aid supply.

    We collect the donations for the humanitarian aid supply and  then purchase food, medicine and personal hygiene items.
