As the war in Ukraine rages on and the temperature starts to drop, Russia continues to bombard the Ukrainian power grid to keep Ukrainians cold and in the dark. Having failed to defeat them on the battlefield, Russia is hoping to win by making life unbearable for average Ukrainian citizens.

As a result, many families will have to endure the winter with minimal access to basic needs such as heat, power, and even food. They are in critical need of our support.

RDI is collecting donations in three areas:

Sleeping Bags

An $89 donation will enable our partners to produce and distribute a sleeping bag to someone in need. The sleeping bags are produced in Ukraine and are delivered to frontline communities.

Meals Ready to Eat (MREs)

A $21 donation will provide shelf-stable, self-heating food to sustain one person for an entire day.

Water Filtration Unit

A combined $75,000 in donations will fund a filtration unit that provides clean water to 30,000 people every day.
All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by RDI donors up to $1 million

RDI is dedicated to identifying and combatting emerging threats to democracy around the world. Join our movement.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
