Zgraya's co-founders

Eugenia Talinovskaya is a volunteer with 15 years of experience.

“My first projects were focused on helping orphanages. It was not a fund at that time.

When the Revolution of Dignity began (in 2013) we participated actively – met many different needs, delivered medicines and food. We opened our own headquarters. It was the moment when we created “Zgraya” – a physical organization without registration. 

And when the ATO began, “Zgraya” concentrated on helping the army, and actually in years 2014-2015 we were very actively involved in helping the military. There is our page on Facebook, where you can get acquainted with our activities in more detail, there are photos, reports, price tags.

When the active phase of the ATO ended, I went back to my work with orphanages and I’m still doing it. I have also been coordinating fundraising projects of the International Charity Foundation “Kozhen Mozhe” (“Everybody can”)  since 2016.

From time to time, when it is necessary to react quickly to any situations in our country, that are outside the framework of any funds, I, as an individual, begin to volunteer and collect assistance. 2 years ago, when there were fires in Chernobyl, we, in the same way, on our own, without any fund, provided assistance in extinguishing fires there.

Since there is a war in Ukraine now, we, as “Zgraya”, as a physical association of active, caring citizens of Ukraine, have taken it upon ourselves to open our warehouses (we already have 2 of them – on the left and right side of Dnipro river in Kyiv) and to launch our delivery. We do what we can: search for what is needed, fundraising and coordinating  purchases and deliveries to civilians, hospitals, the Armed Forces and territorial defense.”

Alexey Yudkevich - coordinator of the evacuation department "Zgraya"

“I have always been a cynical buddy, but the current situation in my country doesn’t let me remain indifferent: civilians who find themselves under fire from the aggressor need to be rescued and taken to safe places. My place today is here, in Ukraine, in Kyiv! We coordinate and carry out the evacuation of the civilians – this is our duty.

Back in 2014, I was an active participant in the Revolution of Dignity. Later on, I was volunteering in the freewill battalion  “Dnipro-1” in eastern Ukraine.

“No one remembers where and when “Zgraya” started. It has always been. For the sake of a common case – to help our country – we call again all ours!”
