The Ukrainian community of San Francisco has raised $7,815 to buy a car for a disabled Donbas war veteran under an initiative to support servicemen demobilized from the Ukrainian armed forces.

The Ukrainians in the United States raised the money via Fundraiser, a service that allows the collection of donations from Facebook users.

“Our veterans don’t get enough aid from the authorities when the war is over for them,” said Oleksandr Safronenko, a civilian volunteer from Kyiv whose son, now living in San Francisco, helped organize the fundraising effort.
