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

$446,270 of $500,000 goal
Given by 1465 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.

Kiwi K.A.R.E (Kiwi Aid & Refugee Evacuation) is operating in Ukraine delivering essential supplies and evacuating civilians from dangerous areas.

Use of funds

Money raised will go directly on operations, the establishment of a HQ, purchase of a van to deliver much needed goods, food, medicine - and to provide evacuations. No money will be used to fund administration or team wages; we are covering our own costs.

Big Thanks To These Two Great Aussie Men   4 February 2024

Richie and Alwyn will soon finish a busy and demanding winter ToD with Kiwi K.A.R.E in Ukraine.

They have driven ‘Manaaki’ (our ambulance) thousands of kilometres and breathed life into our Outreach Programme, conducting numerous evacuations of Ukrainians (and their beautiful dogs it seems) in Red Zones who needed to get to hospitals and out of harms way.

Importantly, they have augmented our trusted relationships with medical units and civic leaders which is important to operate effectively.

Thanks lads - the ANZAC spirit is alive and well and we are all very grateful to you. 💙💛

Thank you so much, John! 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. 💙💛

I hope some of the NZ Govt. funds announced yesterday find their way to KiwiKARE, it says it will partner with NZ agencies to deliver support. Now the "grunt" work starts to achieve your goal. Best wishes.
Tenby Powell

Thank you Gillian, your generous donation will be put to good use immediately. It’s still cold in Ukraine and the stoves and water heaters remain in high demand. We also hope the government chooses to partner with Kiwi K.A.R.E. 💙💛
