LIVING WATER – UKRAINE NEEDS OUR HELP
Russian aggression has brought Ukraine to the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.
The country’s civilian population has been suffering from continuous attacks on housing, infrastructure, transportation, electricity, gas, and water supply.
In the spring of 2022, after Russia destroyed the drinking water supply in Mykolaiv, a major regional center near the Black Sea, it denied 200,000 people access to water. Upon learning of the situation in Mykolaiv, Ukrainians in the Carolinas connected with local Ukrainian volunteers and a team of scientists and engineers from Wise Water, led by Yaroslav Naumuk. Together we pioneered an assistance program that helped fund and build high-productivity and easy deployment and maintenance ion-exchange water filtration systems that work equally well with water from the sea, local rivers and lakes, and conventional and drilled wells.
In June 2023, Russia once again committed an act of ecocide and genocide against the people of Ukraine by blowing up the Kakhovka dam and hydroelectric power station. Besides flooding southern Ukraine and killing its residents and ecosystem, Russia destroyed one of the largest water reservoirs that supplied drinking water to four regions of southern Ukraine. The government of Ukraine is doing its best to solve the situation on the ground, but the immediate need for drinking water is enormous.
The head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional council asked our organization to help supply their region, especially the towns and villages around Kryviy Rig, Marganets and Nikopol with Wise Water filtration systems that have been very effective in Mykolaiv.
A system with a capacity of 1,000 L/Hr and a barrel of 1,000 liters with a water dispenser costs about $13,500. The people and local governments of this frontline region that is constantly under fire are looking for assistance, and Ukrainians in the Carolinas would like to help.
If you or your organization can help us supply water filters for Ukraine, please make your tax-deductible donation to our volunteer-run 501(c)(3) charitable NC nonprofit here: https://www.ukrainiansinthecarolinas.org/donate
