Donation Suggestions for Ukraine

Posted on April 06, 2022

By Global Ties Alabama


Global Ties Alabama decided to help Ukrainians and active supporters of Ukraine living in North Alabama to raise money for a truck of canned food.   

One of the effective ways to arrange humanitarian aid for Ukraine from overseas is to raise funds in the U.S. but to buy aid in neighboring Ukraine countries. First, it can be delivered to Ukraine faster. Second, money saved on shipping aid can be used for buying more supplies.  

Global Ties Alabama decided to help Ukrainians and active supporters of Ukraine living in North Alabama to raise money for a truck of canned food.   

The food will be purchased from the company Facos, canned goods producer located in city the Suceava, Romania just above 1 hour driving distance from Ukrainian border – see below. 

One pallet = 320 boxes One truck = 32 pallets Full truck = 61,440 meals (cans)
