KIWI K.A.R.E UKRAINE - Kiwi Aid & Refugee Evacuation

$426,669 of $500,000 goal
Given by 1423 generous donors in over a year

KIWI K.A.R.E is providing critical Aid and Refugee Evacuation services to the people of Ukraine.

The people of Ukraine are under siege. Help us do what Kiwi's do best: use our practical skills and can-do attitude to make a positive difference.

Fourteen million Ukrainians have been displaced, with half this number believed to be internally displaced within Ukraine. Many are unable to get away from the suffering and trauma of constant attacks.

KIWI K.A.R.E (Kiwi Aid & Refugee Evacuation) needs to raise money to fund vehicles, and purchase supplies and equipment to run a 24-month operation.

We are delivering food, sanitary products for women, nappies, toys for children, medicine and medical equipment, trauma kits and defibrillators, pet supplies (for the thousands of displaced animals) and much more.

We are also providing evacuation services for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s) from troubled areas.

KIWI K.A.R.E is a registered New Zealand Charitable Organisation and is led by Tenby Powell. With over three decades of military service in the NZ Army, a successful business career and service on government boards, Tenby is funding his own way while in situ in Ukraine and now seeks help with sustainable funding for Kiwi K.A.R.E.

“Many have lost everything. The supplies we deliver are essential for those remaining in Ukraine and for those we assist with evacuation. Without a new van the entire operation stops. We travel thousands of kilometres each week and we need to maintain this high operational tempo.”

Thank you for your generous support.

Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine hasn’t ended and neither will our support for those in need.

We have therefore reset the end date of our fundraising and will continue to push it out for as long as is needed.

Thank you New Zealand for all your support. 💙💛

Hope this help keeps a family warm this winter - instead of giving a Christmas gift at this end.

Thank you, Jan. Without your generous support, Kiwi K.A.R.E. would not be able to provide humanitarian and medical aid support, or build the stoves and water heaters. You have our heartfelt thanks. 💙💛
