Alexander Rekeda

Founder of Unity for Freedom

About Me

Founded in 2022, Unity for Freedom is a non-governmental organization with the stated mission of improving the efficiency with which help and resources are distributed to the people of Ukraine and those who have fled the country in the wake of the invasion and subsequent war.

Founders like Alexander Rekeda are using strategic management to improve the efficiency with which necessities like food, shelter, and water are distributed to the people of Ukraine, and they are creating a central location from which aid can be provided for both immediate and long-term rebuilding efforts.

Unity for Freedom is well-positioned to aid Ukrainians in surviving the conflict and emerging from it with the resources necessary to combat the long-term impacts of having lived through armed conflict by giving both immediate support and planning for the days after the war.

Historical Roots of Unity in Defense of Freedom

In the months following the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine in February 2022, Rekeda sought a more efficient means of collecting and distributing relief to the country's citizens. After making donations to several separate organizations, he and several friends decided to start the Unity for Freedom charity to facilitate the distribution of aid more quickly and at lower cost than larger charitable institutions could.

Unity for Freedom responds swiftly to new hotspots and issues in the crisis by combining resources, streamlining management, and developing on-the-ground connections in Ukraine, all while keeping an eye on sustaining resources and long-term requirements.

The fight for Ukrainian independence is about more than just Ukraine. This is a worldwide battle for freedom, and the nonprofit is strengthening the resolve of the front-line fighters by providing for as many of their basic requirements as possible.

An analysis of the charity's response

Through regular communication with Ukrainians who can report on the most pressing needs, help source and distribute aid, and coordinate efforts, Unity for Freedom hopes to target its efforts more precisely. Aid distribution is prioritized for areas close to the conflict's front lines.

These necessities have shifted in the past few months as the battle has progressed, from addressing concerns in rural areas with restricted access owing to army movements to assisting in war-torn cities with broken supply lines.

As Russian bombs continue to level neighborhoods, addressing the resulting housing problem is also a major issue. Charity is working on the ground to help Ukrainian refugees find temporary housing as quickly as feasible and more permanent housing as soon as possible.

Who gets help strictly?

Aid coordination is complex even in quiet times, much less during a crisis. Alexander Rekeda is an integral part of the management team, and he oversees day-to-day operations to ensure everyone's demands are being fulfilled effectively.

The charity helps local groups that care for children without parents, families torn apart by the conflict, and war casualties needing medical and psychological support. Education and housing are considered part of the second tier of care after rehabilitation and basic requirements have been met.

So that food, medicine, and other necessities can be distributed as rapidly as possible during aid distribution lulls caused by delays in international help, it is necessary to buy as many commodities and supplies locally as feasible.

Regional or even neighborhood groups are often the key to a successful distribution strategy. Unity for Freedom works to help in places where large-scale assistance organizations are slower to respond or where locals lack the means to travel to a central location where aid is distributed.

Concerning long-term care, what is the situation?

Distribution of cash to local projects that directly address the needs of the Ukrainian people in their efforts to restore their lives will be managed strategically to meet their long-term requirements.

The creators of Unity for Freedom, including Alexander Rekeda, are committed to setting aside funds to address any ongoing requirements and, eventually, help with the complicated process of reconstructing cities, neighborhoods, and homes as soon as pressing necessities to allow.

United for Freedom uses Rekeda's knowledge and the knowledge of other professionals, such as lawyers and businesspeople, who serve on the board to achieve its long-term goals.

Distributing building materials, coordinating trained laborers, and setting needs-based criteria are all things to think about to make sure that long-term resources are delivered fairly to people who genuinely need them. Providing grants and other forms of financial support to community groups to assist them in accomplishing their missions and improving an entire community is also being evaluated.

Students whose education has been interrupted will have the resources to compensate for lost time with high-quality learning experiences. To win the war, you must also fight against the social consequences that last for years after the fighting stops.
