What is the Defend Ukraine Appeal

Defend Ukraine Appeal (formerly known as U-Help) is Australia’s largest community-run fundraising effort for non-lethal military aid for Ukraine.

 

Managed by the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (AFUO), the peak body for 22 national community organisations in Australia, the fund:

 

  • provides vital non-lethal military aid, such as body armour, thermal imaging devices, walkie talkies, surveillance equipment and transport vehicles to brave defenders on the front line
  • delivers aid through an established and secure global supply chain, managed directly by the AFUO
  • charges 0% administration fees, so that 100% of funds can go directly to supporting Ukrainian defenders
