We are a group of people with the purpose of saving lives in Ukraine torn apart by the war. We believe Ukraine will be reUnited soon and become one of the most thriving countries in Europe.

What do we do?

Our main project at the moment is purchasing ex NHS ambulances, loading them with disposable medical supplies eg. bandages, dressings, sanitizers etc. and shipping them over to Ukrainian hospitals. Our ambulances are saving lives in the most affected areas of the country.

Why UUF?

Charity is not our job, it's our passion. We came from different backgrounds as soon as the war began to help Ukraine.

We work directly with hospitals and medical organisations in Ukraine. We thoroughly verify every request and make sure the aid is being deliverd to the right people in the most effcient way.

One day we might create a separate charity fund. At the moment we prefer being informal to invite more passionate members to our team. All our activities are being oversean and processed by a registered charity Embraceme (1172342)
