Our goal is to use every hryvnia as efficiently as possible. Therefore, we initially work with large quantities and close the full cycle of assistance – from negotiations with manufacturers to delivery to subdivisions. We succeeded thanks to TECHIIA holding volunteers, who have experience since 2014, and friends in Ukraine and abroad,” says Oleg Krot, director of Techia Foundation and managing partner of TECHIIA holding.

During the year, subdivisions of various branches of the armed forces and structures of the Defense Forces of Ukraine received assistance from the Fundation Techia. Among them:

  • brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,
  • divisions of TRO,
  • marines and border guards,
  • units of the Main Intelligence Directorate and the National Police,
  • special operations forces,
  • air defense units.

The Assistance Fund is 99% made up of funds from the TECHIIA holding and its founders.

Anyone can make a donate to the Fund's account. But there are small amounts. We do not conduct large-scale fundraising campaigns, because we are not a professional charitable foundation. Our principle is to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine with our resources and do it with maximum efficiency, – Oleg Krot sums up.

In 2023, the Techia Foundation continues the project “Support for Freedom of Ukraine”. A new focus of work is added to purchases – prosthetics for military and civilians who have lost limbs as a result of the war. The organization has signed memorandums with two prosthetic centers.

Recall that in addition to the NGO “Fund for Flow”, Oleg Krot personally supports the Defense Forces of Ukraine. The amount of assistance from him crossed the mark of 40 million dollars. Procurement details are not announced due to military secrecy.
