WHO WE ARE
Established in 2014, FAU has spent nearly a decade working with the State Emergency Services and volunteer brigades in Ukraine, building strong relationships in Kyiv, Lviv, Uzhgorod, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil, Odessa, Chernivstsi, Dnipro, Cherkasy, Mykolaiv, and Nikopol, and to date has delivered over 140 tons of life rescue and health care aid.
When the conflict started, FAU used their trusted network to focus on the immediate delivery of critical aid to Ukraine. In a week, the organization accomplished what typically takes well over a year collecting 14 tones of critically needed life rescue equipment, PPE, and medical supplies, chartered a cargo plane, and departed from the Edmonton International Airport on March 10th. In less than 24hrs of landing in Europe, FAU and AUCC personally delivered two-semi trucks full of equipment into Ukraine and handed them off to our contacts in the State Emergency Services. Within days of that equipment being provided, it was on the front lines of the war and making international news, as seen on CNN. Click here to view all images.
FAU's will continue to collect critical aid and ship it to the front lines and communities affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
