If you have ever visited the UK at this time of year you may be forgiven for thinking you have arrived in a war zone. But what is reason behind the constant detonations and explosions? Well, the British celebrate the foiling of Guy Fawkes audacious attempt to blow up parliament, (people would probably help him nowadays,) assassinate King James I and his subsequent arrest, torture and (rather grisly) death. What? You’ve never heard of it? Well I found a documentary that shows the whole extraordinary story. A fascinating piece of history from 415 years ago today.

We are volunteers. We have been volunteering for many years in different projects helping ill people, vulnerable elderly, orphans, refugees, civilians who got stuck in a war territory. All our actions were the ways to encourage people to move forward, realize that they have chance to live, they are not along and have support, they are the part of Ukrainian community
But now we are in despair. During these 57 war days our hears are torn into pieces because of impotence and distress. During these 57 days children, elderly, women are perishing. They are perishing because of bombing, shot by Russians, unable to escape from the occupied territories Urainian girls and women are raped by Russian soldiers, men are killed, Ukrainian civilians die unable to buy necessary medicine.
SIMIC, rescue and volunteer teams are trying to do their best to give civilians chance to survive in this Hell, but these groups are lack of save connection, professional radios with lots of helpful features, which can strengthen communication operations in a safeter way.
These teams need high quality radios\walkie-talkie to share information about our civilians and the way children, elderly, women can be safely evacuated, to minimaze risk of getting information by Russians.
Usage of professional radios by rescue and volunteer teams are chances for civilian Ukrainians to stay alive, to kiss their children, hug parents. It is a chance to see a new sunrise.
We would like to fundraise money to buy DP4400 / DP4800 portable two-way radios for the team, who are saving civilian Ukrainians, who give them chances to stay alive.
