UNITED24 was launched by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy as the main venue for collecting charitable donations in support of Ukraine. Funds will be transferred to the official accounts of the National Bank of Ukraine and allocated by assigned ministries to cover the most pressing needs:

Come Back Alive
Launched in 2014, Come Back Alive became the biggest organization providing support to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Charitable Foundation of Serhiy Prytula
Serhiy Prytula has been helping the Ukrainian Army as a private volunteer since russia occupied Crimea and Donbas in 2014. At first, he helped with the uniforms, armor, and food supplies, later, when these needs started to be covered by the Ministry of Defense, he switched to high-tech technology, drones, and equipment for command posts.
“Hospitallers” is a volunteer organization of paramedics. It was founded by Yana Zinkevich at the beginning of hostilities in Ukraine in 2014. Then russia annexed Crimea and began hostilities in the east of the country.
The slogan of our organization is "For the sake of every life".

4. Protest and boycott companies that are not withdrawing from russia
Using the services of companies that have not left the russian market, people are simultaneously supporting the war. The cause-and-effect relationship is quite simple: a person buys something → the company makes a profit → and pays taxes to the state budget of russia → which buys weapons with this money. Even if you are in another country and taxes are paid there, supporting companies that have not left the russian market gives them tacit consent to their position.

5. Hire and host Ukrainians
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, more than 5.6 million people have fled Ukraine. These are women, children, and the elderly. Each of them needs housing and food, and many feel strong enough to work.
Support Ukrainians in your cities.
