More Information about SHERP:

Four all-terrain vehicles have been equipped according to the request of the State Emergency Service: towing systems, an additional battery, removable passenger seats, rescue stretchers that can be attached to a helicopter, special loudspeakers, lighting devices, etc. Funds for these rescue vehicles were raised via the fundraising platform UNITED24. The contribution to one all-terrain vehicle was made by the WOG gas station chain within the 'Rescuing Our People, Wherever They Are' project. Ukrainian photographers Kostyantyn and Vlada Liberov assembled funds for another rescue vehicle. Two all-terrain vehicles were purchased with funds raised by monobank clients. In total, 322,000 people joined the monobank fundraiser initiated by Oleg Gorokhovsky. The bank contributed 5,000,000 UAH itself.

"We continue to help the rescuers who are eliminating the consequences of the russian terrorist attack on the Kakhovska HPP day and night. This is the first batch of all-terrain vehicles. The second is on the way, and heavy equipment will help dismantle the debris. The total amount of the Lifeboat for Ukraine fundraiser reached more than 200,000,000 UAH. It united everyone — from companies and representatives of big business, to children who did their small projects to help. From Ukrainians to donors of over 50 countries. UNITED24's greatest strength is this unity around an important goal," said Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Development of Education, Science, and Technology, Minister of Digital Transformation.

The purchased Bohun-2 all-terrain rescue vehicles are ready for tasks in the flood zone. Rescue vehicles can move on water and difficult terrain, which is relevant in the working conditions of Kherson Oblast.

"All-terrain vehicles are currently the main evacuation transport in Kherson Oblast. The water is receding, and getting to many locations through the rubble and remnants of flooding is impossible. The transferred Bohun-2 vehicles are equipped with everything necessary for rescuing people, so we will be able to use them for the delivery of aid, for evacuation, and for the movement of emergency services teams, which continue to eliminate the consequences of the explosion of the Kakhovska HPP. We thank all the donors of UNITED24 for their help!" said Serhiy Kruk, Head of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.
