Keep Ukraine Connected
The Ukraine is facing a long, cold winter. Refugees scattered around the world want nothing more than the chance to connect with the family and friends they’ve left behind — but there’s one thing getting in the way - a safe, reliable internet connection.

But their spirit will not be defeated. Right now hundreds of network engineers are working around the clock to restore connectivity to the worst hit regions — enabling thousands to reconnect with their families, allowing businesses to start operating and providing a small semblance of normalcy in a world that was turned upside down by the Russian invasion.

You can help in three ways. Donate money to the Keep Ukraine Connected campaign and we can bulk purchase these devices and deliver them directly to our contacts in Ukraine through our network of amazing volunteer drivers.
Do you have access to these devices to yourself? You can pay and donate, or if you have spare stock, simply donate the equipment to us. We will do our best to arrange pickup based on geographical location.
If you still want to help but can’t donate directly, our Ukrainian friends are also seeking all sorts of other equipment to support keeping their networks running. You can have a look at the list here, and if something catches your eye you can email us to get access to our database and fill in your potential contributions.
