Social innovation through expanding human intellectual capacity
We stand with Ukraine ♡♡
On February 24, Russia began the full-scale military invasion of Ukraine. This is an act of war, an attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, a gross violation of the UN Charter and international law’s fundamental norms and principles.
Astem Foundation, as one of the leading social development foundations in Ukraine, launched an emergency humanitarian project to respond to emergency and long-term needs resulting from military aggression in Ukraine.
The initiative aims to establish a pooling of donor contributions for designated funding of multi-sectoral aid programs.
