About the initiative

Ukraine needs your help to stay connected

Ukraine needs your help to stay connected Since the start of the full scale Russian invasion, it has become increasingly difficult for the Ukrainian people to stay connected.

The war has had a devastating impact on Ukrainian infrastructure, and millions of people have been displaced, forcing their work, education and social lives online. It is estimated that 200,000 schoolchildren in the most affected regions are now learning remotely.

Yet a severe shortage of electronic devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones threatens to unplug the Ukrainian people from the internet.

If you have a new or used device lying around the house, give it a new life in the hands of a Ukrainian nurse, teacher or student. If you are a company and have spare ICT equipment, use it to support the fight for democracy on Europe’s borders.

Your donation could support a hospital to provide essential care, help children to continue their education, or assist a local government to deliver vital services.

Thanks to the EU’s civil protection mechanism, we can ship the devices to Ukraine and on to where they are needed most.

Let’s keep Ukraine connected.
Let’s collect #LaptopsforUkraine.

Citizens of liberated Kherson have been quick to get back online after 8 months of power and cellular outage in the Russian occupation, whether to get updates from the outside world or contact loved ones.

What devices are needed?




Contact Us

Please, wipe your device of all personal information before donation


Can I donate materials other than computers/devices?

Yes, Ukraine needs all types of ICT equipment. Please contact us to see the full list of equipment needed.

What are the minimum requirements for devices?

It seems obvious, but the device must be operational (e.g., can be switched on). For laptops, that means a working battery, screen and keyboard/trackpad. For phones or other touch-screen devices, there should be a working battery and screen. Please include the charger.

Do you require any specific brand/OS devices?

For laptops, they can be Windows/Mac/Linux machines. For other devices, they can be Android/iOS operated devices.

Do I need to wipe the device before donating?

Yes, this is important: please remove any personal/sensitive information from your device before donating it.

What happens to my device when it reaches Ukraine?

The device will be taken by the Ukrainian Ministry for Digital Transformation, and distributed to where it is most needed. This could be a school, a hospital, a local administration, or an individual. This decision depends on the quality of the device and Ukraine’s most pressing needs.

Throughout the campaign we will regularly communicate on those that receive the devices.

I’ve lost the charger, is that a problem?

No, but if you have a working charger that makes the process much easier, so we would prefer it.

Will my donation be publicised?

Yes – if you agree to it. We are running a communications campaign and will publicise donors and donations regularly on the campaign website and on social media. You are also welcome to share your donation story on the EUTech4Ukraine Futurium community and on social media using #LaptopsforUkraine .

How will my device get to Ukraine?

Deliveries will be coordinated through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
