#TechForUkraine – help Ukraine with digital health solutions
Ukraine Health Connector

Non-profit organizations need tech support to maximize impact in the light of the ongoing war. Help them design digital solutions that matter. 

Russian aggression against Ukraine is leading to an inevitable to a humanitarian crisis. Ukrainian and international non-governmental organizations play a key role in protecting civilians and distributing and coordinating humanitarian aid. Charities are currently closest to the people in need, their help is vital and urgently needed. However, they often lack the modern technology  which is widely used by commercial companies and businesses .

That’s why a few days ago Tech to the rescue launched the #TechForUkraine campaign, which aims to help non-governmental organizations with their digital needs so they can maximize their impact in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine.

How can you support Ukraine

NGOs are at the heart of civil society in Ukraine. While the the age of digitization has dawned, charities are still far behind private businesses and state institutions. Weak security systems, outdated software and a lack of user-friendly UI and UX make it difficult for them to operate. 

GURT runs biannual study of the state of Tech at Ukrainian Non-profits. The need for secure and effective technology is there. Particularly, many CSOs collect and store sensitive personal data without deploying appropriate data protection solutions. Another big issue is UI/UX. Having great ideas behind online services and products offered to beneficiaries, Ukrainian CSOs often are not able to present them is attractive and user-friendly formats due to lack of resources available.” said Bogdan Maslych, Executive Director, GURT Resource Center
