Foundation "Angels for Ukraine"
We bring people to safety and unite efforts to recover Ukraine. We continue to provide transport for evacuation, and we also started implementing projects focused on Mental health/psychosocial support and the recovery of local communities. We cooperate with Ukrainian companies, municipalities, hospitals, and refugee centres. We maximally involve Ukrainian transport companies, thereby supporting the local economy. This site was also developed by Ukrainian programmers working intermittently due to power outages caused by continuous bombing of energy infrastructure facilities.
We rely on our experience and invite everyone who is willing to listen and help to cooperate. Without mutual conversations, trust and tolerance, we could not do our job.
Our goal is to help children, families, the elderly come to where they feel safe and welcome, where they can get help in need. And we hope that we will be able to help these people return home - then when it will be safe. Our psychosocial support projects and recovery initiatives will help those who returned home and want to build a new life.
In the first week of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the transport company Amitours.ltd director Mr. Raitis Bullits travels to the Polish-Ukrainian border, willing to help with his experience of transporting Ukrainian refugees to other European countries.
Seeing the huge scale of the tragedy, it becomes clear that personal funds and company capabilities are not enough. Mr. Raitis Bullits turns for help to the investor club “Changer club”, of which he himself is a member, to raise more funds for the transportation of refugees.With the help of the Changers club and private supporters 2,657 Ukrainian refugees are transported out of the war zone.
Another member of the Changer Club – Mr.Brooks Newmark joined Mr. Raitis Bullits on the Polish border to see with his own eyes what this important work means. It was Brooks, with his political experience, who realized the need to form a fund that would deal with bringing the civilian population to safety.
