As part of the "We Live Here" project, Kyivstar and "Come Back Alive" have accumulated UAH180 million. The goal of the fundraising, which lasted from May 2023, is to provide transportation and equipment for 146 engineering-sapper groups of the Ukrainian Support Forces.

"We Live Here" is a joint charitable initiative of Kyivstar and the "Come Back Alive" foundation with the partnership support of the 1+1 media group.

According to the company, fundraising brought together Ukrainians and foreign partners, subscribers and employees of the Kyivstar mobile operator, representatives of business, and culture.

"Kyivstar continues to systematically support defenders together with our reliable partner, the 'Come Back Alive' foundation for competent assistance to the army. I sincerely thank everyone who supported the 'We Live Here' initiative. By uniting, we even exceeded the ambitious goal of 175 million hryvnias and raised 180 million hryvnias, which will help sappers make our lands safer to live," said Kyivstar CEO Oleksandr Komarov.

 

During the project, Kyivstar transferred over 61 million hryvnias for collection, including:

• 31.5 million - direct charitable contribution from Kyivstar;

• over 29.7 million hryvnias - transferred due to the connections of the "Help the Armed Forces" Superpowers in the subscription tariffs.

• almost 700 thousand hryvnias thanks to contributions from mobile operator employees.

The fundraising was completed during the B2U: Business to Ukraine charity auction with the participation of representatives of the Ukrainian and international business community. Thanks to the drawing of unique lots from Ukrainian artists and the "Come Back Alive" foundation for demining Ukrainian territories, an additional 1.5 million hryvnias was raised.
