Today, about 57,000 women serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and this is only official data. The Oleksiy Stavnitser Charitable Foundation and the Zemlyachky NGO are proud to announce the launch of a new, extremely important project to provide women at the front with the necessary ammunition.
If you are now at the front and you lack ammunition, uniforms, hygiene products and other things for a comfortable service - open the Instagram page of Zemliachky and write them in private messages what you need.
Since the beginning of the war, the Oleksiy Stavnitser Foundation has been purchasing stoves, vests and helmets for the military. Immersed in the topic, we began to understand all the nuances: weight, level of protection, material and convenience of various ammunition. Imagine spending the whole day in armor, helmet, with weapons that weigh more than 20 kg, and not just to spend time, but also to give a decent fight back to attackers!
That is why we started looking for lightweight but safe stoves and helmets. And later we got acquainted with "Zemliachky. Ukrainian Front".
This is a project that not only tells about women at the front, but also supports women defenders with everything they need: from special hygiene products and underwear to ammunition, uniforms in size and footwear, taking into account the individual needs of each.
Our organizations have joined forces for a common goal - comfortable and safe performance of combat missions by the defenders of Ukraine.
The Stavnitser Foundation searched for and found super light armor plates weighing 2.7 kg instead of the standard 4.1 kg, with the same degree of protection. The organization "Zemlyachki" found suppliers of comfortable uniforms, shoes and ammunition for women.
Now we can provide women at the front not only with lightweight stoves, but also with: lightweight helmets, comfortable shoes and uniforms of appropriate sizes, panamas and gloves, specific medicines, backpacks, first aid kits, underwear and, of course, a package of "women's humanitarian aid" consisting of 30 hygiene products.
We called this project "Try walking in her shoes".
We will fundraise, purchase and provide women at the front with the most necessary things.
