IFAKs save lives.
Individual first aid kits (IFAKS) contain tourniquets, bandages and chest seals that could be the difference between life and death for a wounded Ukrainian soldier or civilian.
White Stork’s US veteran-led team has been on the ground since Day 4 of the war and has delivered 61,530 IFAKs so far. No aid depots, no middlemen, no BS. We need your help to keep going.
All donations are tax-deductible.

Our mission: Give every Ukrainian the means to survive.
The men and women fighting in Ukraine are not professional soldiers. They are civilians who have been thrust into this war of national survival.
As veterans, we’ve seen the horrors of war and know how to deliver aid directly to the front. No middlemen, no BS. Your humanitarian aid to Ukraine means their survival.

How is White Stork different from other aid organizations?
White Stork is jointly-led by US military veterans and Ukrainian patriots who are on the ground in Ukraine. We focus on last mile logistics and only deliver to end-users. We are propelled by our strategic formal relationships with Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways), Ukrposhta (Ukrainian Post Office), and the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA).
Why does White Stork focus on first aid kits?
Ukraine is inundated with low-quality first aid kits that are needlessly contributing to the deaths of soldiers and civilians. White Stork assembles NATO-standard high-quality IFAKs that contain tools to stop traumatic bleeding and restore the airway. These kits include tourniquets, pressure bandages, burn dressings, and chest seals. The Ukrainian government requested 400,000 IFAKs at the start of the war and we are proud to have delivered 10% of this so far.
Where does White Stork get its funding?
White Stork's funding comes from corporate foundations, family foundations, high-net-worth-individuals, and individual donors in the United States and abroad.
Who are White Stork's partners?
Our partners include Ukrainian Railways, Ukrainian Postal Service, various Ukrainian defense forces units, and the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America. Our close relationships with Ukrainian authorities allow us to deliver aid directly to end-users.
Does White Stork supply weapons?
No. As a 501(c)(3) charity, it is illegal to supply any form of weapons. Your donations go strictly toward humanitarian support like medical supplies.
