GSG is working directly with trusted non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on the ground in Boryspil, Kherson, Kharkiv, Mykolayev, Luhansk, and Kyiv to meet their most critical needs. Supported NGOs include NGO “CLAS, HRTC: Human Rights Training Center (Mykolaiv Region), Flying Bag International Movement Foundation (Poland), Kherson Foundation “Union”, and the Kharkiv Volunteer Network.

“Ukraine stands bravely thanks to the courage of its people but still faces immense hardship,” said Dr. Irina Fursman, founder of Global Synergy Group. “We never imagined we would turn our mission into one of survival, but we cannot stand idle during this devastating conflict. We’re currently asking those in our community, and beyond, to help us provide immediate relief to the people who are fighting for their freedom, their homes, their democracy, and their lives.”
