The Ukrainian people have been fighting for their independence for centuries and continue to do so in the 21st century. Without light, heat, food, but there is nothing more precious than freedom and the right to a free life. As a century ago, Ukrainians continue to demonstrate strength and indomitability, but modern harsh realities give us more opportunities to help and support those who need it most. The Russian Federation resorted to insidious terrorist methods of fighting against the civilian population of Ukraine by damaging critical infrastructure facilities. The first mass shelling of our country's power plants took place on October 10, 2022, and for several months now, Russia has not retreated from its goal of de-energizing Ukraine. According to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi, our energy workers work every day and perform incredibly difficult tasks to return electricity to every Ukrainian's home.
The situation is currently very difficult. Right now, our citizens remain without electricity. Which means no light, heating, hot water, the ability to properly cook food. That is, without the basic conditions of existence. Also, the lack of electricity deprives people of the opportunity to contact their loved ones and follow the news, due to the lack of communication and the Internet. For the bazats, it also means the loss of jobs or opportunities to study online. Even in such difficult conditions, generators and batteries can restore heat, light and basic living conditions to people. Our foundation created the generatorufhope program, under which we purchase all the necessary heating and electricity generation equipment and transfer it to the needs of the residents of Kherson, Bakhmut and other cities where the electricity situation is the worst. One generator costs 45,000 hryvnias, as does one battery and an air heater.
This is approximately $1100 or €1000 per piece of equipment. The operation of one such generator is enough to support the electricity and heat needs of two private houses. German quality generator, can work for 8 hours without stopping. Among the advantages is the mode of maintaining silence without losing the quality of work and the amount of energy supply.
The program also includes the purchase of heating pads worth 5000 hryvnias per unit, 120 dollars, for equipping heating points and transferring them to places where internally displaced persons are currently staying. Anyone can support our initiative by simply clicking the "Donate" button in the program description. At first glance, we set a very difficult task to provide as many residents as possible with electricity, but together we will be able to give the gift of heat.
