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

$481,107 of $500,000 goal
Given by 1554 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.

Greetings Friends

I’m pleased to report that Kiwi K.A.R.E has secured sixteen more ambulances which are now en route to Europe.

All going to schedule, we will collect them from Port Bremerhaven, Germany, in late July.

Due to your extraordinary help, this now totals 30 vehicles Kiwi K.A.R.E has gifted to Ukraine for humanitarian and medical support operations: 23 ambulances, 1 truck and 6 support vehicles.

Thank you New Zealand - we are very grateful for your support 💙💛

Thank you, Red & Christine. Without your generous support, Kiwi K.A.R.E. would not be able to provide humanitarian and medical aid support, or conduct evacuations. You have our heartfelt thanks. 💙💛
