U-Saved UA is a charitable foundation that federates the Ukrainian volunteer organizations with which it works. The federation sits on its board of directors and supports its actions through fundraising, administrative and program support, and capacity building.
Oksana has participated in the founding of U-Saved since its origins. Holder of a master’s degree in phylology, she is the founder of the online educational platform “jit.academy” which aims to increase the level of knowledge of foreign languages among the population. “Education has no limits” and “Never Stop Learning”, these are her personal and professional mottos which she used as slogans for her project. Head of the “Just In Time” translation agency, professional translator with publications of translated novels for the “Folio” publishing house, she has been collaborating since 2004 with local and international institutions and NGOs focused on social issues, environmental, health, public and cultural. Since February 2022, she has been an active member of humanitarian support in Ukraine.
The partner was identified in March 2022. Rescue Now is U-Saved’s main partner in the development of a major program for the evacuation of civilians from war zones funded by the Polish NGO PAH.
Edelweiss is a historical partner of U-Saved in the context of the crisis in Ukraine. This association, which has been helping the families of missing persons in Donbass since 2015, has extended its activities following the 2022 war. This small structure of volunteers that we support has a good network of contacts in Donbass and has enabled us to identify the last semi-industrial bakery producing bread in the region. Thus we have the possibility of distributing bread even in the hardest areas of access like the village of Avdiivka where we deliver 400 loaves per week to people in the most difficult situations, handicapped and elderly people stuck in this area of the front line.
