Who we are

The NGO Community Self-Help (CSH) is putting all its efforts into defending Ukraine from Russia’s war on our people, our territory, and our freedom. This means caring for Ukrainian hospitals and defenders, and psychosocial support to Ukrainian IDPs and veterans, as well as providing fighting the Information War against russian disinformation through newsletters, oral histories, and storytelling videography – from those most affected by the War.

What we do

Medical humanitarian aid

Providing medical and humanitarian support for hospitals and Defenders of Ukraine.

Ukraine is now facing an extreme deficit of medical supplies and drugs for hospitals, which save the lives of the civilian population. Through its networks of longtime trusted contacts in health care, NGOs, Ukrainian diaspora, and other communities, CSH is organizing the purchase of much-needed medical supplies in Ukraine and abroad and delivering them directly to the places and people who need them most. This includes hospitals in Lviv, Mykolayiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, and Kyiv oblast (Bucha, Borodyanka)
