UNITED BUSINESS FOR UKRAINE. Case studies. TECHIIA

TECHIIA is an international holding that invests in and manages companies in various industries such as IT products, Software-as-a-Service, Esports, construction technologies, Drone-as-a-Service, light industry, car sharing, and other technological areas. Most of the holding assets were created by Ukrainians, and with the help of the holding, they turned into successful global projects that adhere to sustainable development principles.

A significant part of the TECHIIA holding team operates in Ukraine, so immediately after the invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, the holding mobilized all resources to fight for the country’s freedom and help the victims of the war. The companies of the holding have transformed their activities in order to implement projects that will help Ukrainians to return to a peaceful life in a free country as soon as possible.

An aid fund worth tens of millions of dollars

On the initiative of the managing partners of TECHIIA, Oleg Krot, and Yuriy Lazebnikov, the NGO Techiia Foundation focused on its new direction — «Supporting the freedom of Ukraine». As part of this initiative, the company purchased humanitarian aid for the defenders of Ukraine and war victims for more than USD 21 million, in particular, the Foundation:

  • sponsored the shelter in the city of Chernivtsi. The Techiia Foundation financed three months of the shelter’s activities. These are funds for the maintenance of the facility and to help its residents. Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia into Ukraine, more than 3,000 displaced persons from Kharkiv, Mariupol’, Kramatorsk, and other hot spots of the country have been temporarily housed here. Now more than 120 people live in the shelter, and over 30 of them are children.
  • funded hot meals for IDPs from the Kyiv region. During the temporary occupation of the Kyiv region, the Techiia Foundation financed hot meals for the IDPs from the temporarily occupied Irpin’, Bucha, and Hostomel’, as well as for the rescuers and patients of the capital’s hospitals. In cooperation with a catering company, it became possible to provide 1,300 portions of meals every day.
  • provided modern equipment for neurosurgery. The hospital in the city of Cherkasy in the central part of Ukraine, which can simultaneously help up to 1,000 patients, received two electrosurgical devices and six inspection lights for dressings provided by the Techiia Foundation. This upgrade helps perform both brain and spinal cord surgeries faster and with minimal post-surgical complications.

In addition to that, within the «Get well soon» project, the NGO Techiia Foundation has been upgrading the equipment in hospitals in 10 cities of Ukraine for four years now. During this time, it helped save hundreds of children’s and adults’ lives, and today it helps save the wounded.

An app to improve humanitarian aid

JMIND, a software developer, with the support of an international team of volunteers, has developed a free mobile application Blend Social, that streamlines the process of giving or receiving aid.

Blend Social users can help Ukrainians with food, shelter, clothing, transportation, housing, and more. You can also leave a request for help in the application and receive it from people from any country in the world. The Blend Social community already has over 6,600 users and over 3,000 people have received the aid they needed.

Support of Ukraine at the international level

The NGO Techiia Foundation joined the #StandwithUkraine global initiative. Starting from March 2022 at the WePlay Esports Arena L.A. in Los Angeles words of support for Ukraine were spoken by 12 famous people in the US and the world, in particular, model Maye Musk, director Roland Emmerich, marketer Cameron Pfizenmaier.

TECHIIA Holding will keep supporting the struggle of the Ukrainian people for freedom and will keep developing charitable and social initiatives aimed at overcoming the crisis caused by the war.
