Monetary donations to support the Ukrainian rail sector

Global Ukraine Rail Task Force

Raise Funds For The Rail Sector In This Crisis

After Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine, the rail system has become the lifeline of the Ukrainian people as well as its humanitarian and war effort. But Russia is deliberately targeting it – damaging the infrastructure and injuring or killing its workers. More than 1460 rail workers have been wounded and 560 killed so far in their mission to keep the network running in the current wartime atmosphere.

The Ukrainian rail sector needs your help in this crisis! Donation proceeds provide food packages for rail workers and their families in the war zone. Each one consists of flour, pasta, rice, salt, corn and wheat grits, oil, canned fish and meat, pate, tea, condensed milk, sugar, and biscuits/cookies. We are also collecting to transport urgent medical supplies collected in other parts of the world to the frontline to the facilities of Ukrainian Railways

Generous donors have made it possible to provide tens of thousands of packages so far. For more details, watch the short video below.

We ask you to donate in several leading currencies (all shown to the right of this page)
