Humanitarian aid to Ukrainian rural citizens and small farmers aimed at rebuilding their homes and farms
The World to Rebuild Rural Ukraine is a charity fundraising project
aimed to help Ukrainian village citizens rebuild their homes and restore their small ag production capacities
after damage by russian military forces.
On the 24th of February 2022 russia has declared a war to a democratic Ukraine. From the first days of the war, russian terrorists have been shelling civil buildings, bombing people’s homes, deliberately destroying local hospitals and schools.
Thousands of civilians have been murdered and millions of Ukrainians have suffered substantial to total losses in their properties.
As of mid-March 2022 according to the foreign assessments the damages to private real estates in Ukraine, infrastructure, industrial facilities, communication lines and many of both civil and military objects in Ukraine were totaling about $500 billion. Unfortunately, that is not yet the end.
Rural areas suffer
The damages have been made not only to big cities, but also to beautiful Ukrainian villages, where there are no military infrastructure, but where all the people are running small to medium agricultural production.
An industry that bears significant losses due to the russian war in Ukraine, but is not prioritized yet is agriculture.
Ukraine is one of the top 5 agricultural countries in the world which can feed up to 600 million of people (source: ministry of agriculture in Ukraine).
Ukrainian Ag industry is supplying ag produce to a number of other countries worldwide including Northern Africa, Middle East and Asia. Inability to fulfill our mission in the fields might result in the substantial reduction of food supply worldwide, and for some countries in Africa the consequences can be detrimental.
According to FAO, as a result of the war, between 20 to 30 percent of the arable lands in Ukraine will either not be planted or will remain unharvested during the 2022/23 season. The yields of Ag crops on the remaining lands also likely will be adversely affected due to lack of inputs.
It is a fact that citizens of Ukrainian villages run small scale agricultural production: grow ag commodities in their backyard gardens, raise some farm animals, collect and process mushroom and berries in the woods. All members of their families are usually involved in the production. With a limited access to resources rebuilding their homes, storage premises or production equipment is very difficult for them.
The WRRU process of granting aid is done according to the prioritized purposes:
Fixing, re-construction or total rebuilding of homes and living premises (walls, roof, windows, doors, electricity and sewage)
Reconstruction of production capacities including the barns, stables, garages and storages necessary to continuing small agricultural entrepreneurship
Renovation of damaged agricultural equipment/machinery, is necessary to continue small agricultural entrepreneurship
Purchasing farm animals and some of the vital inputs necessary to continue small agricultural entrepreneurship
Travelite team uses its trusted network of farmers throughout all the regions of Ukraine to identify the individual families, who are in most need to be helped. The aid recipients’ selection is done strictly according to the approved criteria and can not be influenced by subjective judgements
