THE OLYMPIC CONNECTION

Little Wing Relief is working with Ukrainians both stateside and in Ukraine to fill lists of much needed supplies for civilians and soldiers.

In New York

We are very pleased to be working hand in hand with the indomitable Dmitry Feld, Marketing Manager of the USA Luge Association.

Dmitry has rallied his town of Lake Placid and has been shipping much needed supplies since the onset of the war on Ukraine.

In Ukraine

Through Dmitry, we have partnered with Heraskevych Charity Foundation founded by Vladyslav Heraskevych.

Olympic Skeleton slider  Vladyslav Heraskevych  will  long be remembered from the Bejing 2022 Winter Olympics when upon completing one of his runs, he held up a Ukrainian flag with the words“No War in Ukraine, in front of world TV cameras.

Like many Ukrainian athletes and performers, from ballet dancers to boxers, Hersakevych has answered his country's call and is registered for territorial defense.
Although he has not yet been called to service he, his father Mikhail Geraskevych, Coach of Olympic Team Skeleton and Bobsleigh Ukraine, and his stalwart team mates are using their team van to distribute relief supplies to Kyiv and surrounding areas.

Trips that previously would have taken one or two hours have turned into harrowing journeys, sometimes taking an overnight stay in the van when curfew hits. Brave lads. Brave Ukrainians.

Little Wing Relief is also working on expanded lists of medicines and medical needs from The Ministry of Heath of Ukraine who have provided comprehensive needs lists including everything from children's formula and diapers to ambulances and armored evacuation vehicles.

And yes, we can ship almost anything thanks to the amazing Sara Chianese and TEAM WORLDWIDE. They have an awesome global transport network.

We also have lists of much needed tactical clothing and gear to assist the brave men and women actively fighting the Russian army.

These soldiers are begging for USED (or new) BOOTS, HELMETS, AND BODY ARMOR. Some of these courageous fighters are going to war in trainers!

So, please see these lists on the NEEDS LIST page.

Our immediate plan was to start by filling an initial 20 ft. container with critically needed food, medicine and supplies.

Little Wing Relief acting as Big Huge Help has previously shipped four succesive 40 ft. containers of relief goods to underserved populations in Honduras in the devastating wake of Hurricane Mitch.

Our experiences there have given us the know-how and the will to successfully reach our goals.

Support for Ukraine is everywhere so supplies and donations built up very quickly. As result we were happily able to fill a 40 ft. container.

Our first load left for Columbus on Sept. 6, 2022 and after forms and logistics delays left Columbus by rail to Norfolk VA on Oct. 25. From Norfolk it travels by ship to Lithuania sscheduled to arrive Nov. 25. Our people will meet the container there and drive it across the border and into Kyiv. Watch this page for updates.

And our next load is already building up! So please support us.

 VICTORY AND PEACE IN UKRAINE!
