Food or clothes will not be collected this time, only gear that can be used in the fight.

The donated items may be used and worn but kindly bring only clean and functional stuff. The second rule of thumb is, that if you wish to bring first aid gear, it is more effective to bring e.g. 20 packages of band-aids than 2 band-aids, 3 thermometers and 1 disinfectant. Bigger batches are easier to sort and deal with throughout the journey.

How to help if you are not coming to War Flea Market

If for some odd reason you are not coming to the War Flea Market, but as a private person wish to help in the efforts, you can do it through the platform. On the site you can see what stuff is needed right now and mail the supplies you want to contribute for free through the cooperating carriers. The goods will be received and delivered forward by the association. In addition to the fighting gear, you can donate medical equipment, hygiene supplies or even gear for pets.

The Ukrainian Association in Finland will deliver the collected items where they are most needed through their own reliable channels. The most acute supplies collected will leave for Ukraine already on the following day.
