With funds granted by the Association for the Support of Victims of the Ukraine Conflict (ASVUC), Ukrainian NGO Nasha Peremoga funded the purchase of a generator and fuel for 50 residents and 30 staff members of a home for the elderly and disabled in the village of Peremoha, Kyiv Oblast.

The village of Peremoha was under occupation from February 28th to March 13th 2022. After de-occupation, the state allocated a small generator to the home, which, however, could not keep up with all the electricity needs of the home, such as cooking, refrigeration, and washing. “The decent life conditions of our wards depend on electricity,” explained charity founder Iryna Lutai. The purchase of a new, powerful generator ensures that residents and staff no longer have to dread or suffer through blackouts. The new generator also allows the home to re-launch its “Meals on Wheels” program for seniors in the region who are living in their own homes.
