HELP UKRAINE - AID STILL NEEDED!
There is a significant shortage of basic humanitarian aid for Ukraine and its wonderful people. Here's a recap of the work done since launching in April:
Convoy #1: May 2022, two ambulances and medical kits delivered
Convoy #2: June 2022, five vehicles delivered (one ambulance, two 4x4s, one bus, one van). 4x4s provide access to areas with poor road conditions. Buses help residents evacuate occupied zones.
Convoy #3: August 2022, seven vehicles delivered (ambulances, 4x4s, vans, defibrillators, stretchers, oxygen units, medical supplies).
Convoy #4: October 2022 - eleven vehicles delivered!
We continue working on this project because we’ve seen the outsized impact that this aid is having. For as long as donations keep coming in, we will continue going into Ukraine to provide this aid.
Please help us continue.
While donation are not tax deductible, 100% of money raised will be directly used to purchase more ambulances, patient transport vehicles and associated medical supplies.

2 hours after delivering the first ambulance in May, we received a call from officials, saying that ambulance was immediately used to pick up 2 wounded people that would have otherwise died. We had to keep the project going!

WHO IS BEHIND AUS UKRAINE AID?
Well know Australian business person and recently-elected member of the North Sydney Local Government, James Spenceley is behind this project.
“Having spent significant time in Ukraine and having both family and friends there, I found it difficult to find direct and trusted ways to donate or get assistance immediately to help people in Ukraine.
Speaking with relatives and friends in Ukraine, I found one of the most requested items to be ambulances, with many having been destroyed in the conflict.
I’ve sourced and personally purchased 2 second-hand ambulances with the required associated medical supplies and will personally deliver them to Ukraine."
You can follow James' journey via his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages to be assured of the direct nature of the donation.
To bring the aid even further, James has launched a GoFundMe campaign to crowd-source the purchase additional ambulances.
100% of the money raised for this campaign will be used to purchase more ambulances, patient transport vehicles and their associated medical supplies and logistics.
AU$25,000 covers the purchase and delivery of 1x second-hand ambulance fully loaded with medical equipment.
