ABOUT US

ABOUT US

BEAR was founded by two British volunteers, a technology director from Sussex and a farmer from Cornwall, who individually came to Ukraine to help shortly after the 24th February invasion. After witnessing the constraints on large international organisations, we decided to found an independent team.

We work to simply get things done and solve people's most critical needs. In 2022 we worked primarily in the Donbas, evacuating 400 people from places close to the front lines, such as Bakhmut and Lysychansk. In 2023 we reocated our work to the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions. Following the Nova Kakhovka Dam flooding crisis, we delivered over 500,000 litres of emergency drinking water and then installed sustainable water solutions for 36 villages and towns. We are now focused on reconstructing people's homes in a liberated village that suffered from the heaviest destruction in 2022.
