As part of the Ukraine is calling campaign, an international fundraising campaign for supplying emergency vehicles, Artec 3D had by the end of October collected enough funds for a firetruck and an ambulance.
As winter settles in, greater availability of firetrucks and ambulances is crucial. Ukraine continues to struggle with power outages and a lack of stable access to electricity, which makes generators and water filters especially important for all residents of Ukraine. With this in mind, we are now collecting donations that will go towards another ambulance, generators, and water filters.

How we help
From the start of the war, we have focused our efforts on four types of support:
- Donations directly from the company;
- Donations from our own employees (any amount contributed by an Artec employee is matched by the company);
- Donations from our partners and clients;
- Recurring donations from the sale of Artec Leo (a percentage of every Artec Leo sale is donated to LUkraine, a local Ukrainian humanitarian organization).

Through all this, our goal has been to focus our global operations on helping to support the people of Ukraine, and to meet their immediate and most urgent needs – you can read more about this here.
Ongoing contributions to Ukraine include funding the provision of medicine such as painkillers, anti-inflammatory medicine, first-aid kits, bandages, medicine for infants and children, and disinfectants, and essential personal hygiene products such as soaps and shower gels, toothpaste and toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, diapers, tissues, masks, cotton pads, and more.
